Maybe Rev. Joseph Lowery just forgot where he was

Yesterday I spent most of the day watching coverage of President Obama's Inauguration...and like his campaign, it was impressive to watch. There were moments when the glory of this great nation shined so brightly and I, like many Americans, could barely contain my emotions...for a variety of reasons. Yesterday the WORLD watched as America peacefully passed power to a new administration after what many are calling a "graceful" & flawless transition from the previous one. Our new President(word is he's BLACK ) was put into power without force, bloodshed, polling place death threats or a military coup. He was Elected to the highest office in the land in the greatest nation on earth. Certainly the most diverse nation politically and religiously and as our president said "where else but in America" could his story even have taken place. Close to 2 million people cheered on this moment in person.

Many of us have seen the footage of Reverend Lowery's historical journey and others like him and their contributions to yesterday's historical moment. Their sacrifices and suffering can only be imagined by most of us today but certainly are respected by me.

But what I didn't see in yesterday's crowds ...anywhere for that matter..were slave owners ,
attack dogs , fire hoses, racial signs, segregated seating.

What I did see was a Black man elected president with 66 million votes in a country that is 14 % black. The day before I witnessed incredible memorials and commentary on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.....his birthday , a federal holiday signed into law by Ronald Reagan.

What I did see was an entire nation setting an example for the entire world on how to get along in the face of "all kinds of stuff."

There are many high profile Black role models certainly didn't have to wait until a Black man was sworn in as the leader of the free world.

But as an AMERICAN... I was disappointed by Reverend Lowery's closing remarks to his benediction at the inauguration of our 44th President.

here they are:

Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around...when yellow will be mellow...when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen.

Perhaps Reverend Lowery forgot where he was or that it was January 20 2009.

Maybe the line he was looking for was Lord give us all the strength to continue to work together as one nation under God black, brown yellow & white, to embrace what is right.

And if it was the ryhme and rhythm thing he was going for...he still could of done that without being self righteous.

Say Amen.

US Airways Pilot = Hudson River Hero for a lot of reasons

As I watched the news coverage of the US Airways crash on the Hudson River.a few things ran threw my mind..I was relieved : That it was not my family or me in the friggid waters in that plane between NYC & NJ, that the aircraft did not break into several jagged pieces upon impact and that the passengers were all safe and for the most part, calm about it.

Some say it was a miracle. The miracle was that THIS veteran captain was still around to save this plane and these people. THAT was the miracle. That Somehow Captain "Sully" Sullenberger III survived layoffs, mergers and cuts so the people on that flight could benefit from a guy with 30 years experience that calmly "landed" the plane "on top" of the water while the proverbial crap was hitting the fan....then he's the last one off before exiting the aircraft.

The plane looked almost serene floating there in the final moments before it was towed away by NYC tugs. Holy crud. Water has the density of concrete. We've all seen videos of planes disinegrating during water crashes and "Sully" manages to avoid a flaming inner city crash, then realizes he doesn't have the altitude for another smaller airport so he GLIDES it ONTO a RIVER....AND ...never raises his voice...or panics. CAPTAIN SULLY ROCKS !


(..and people wonder why pilots are chick magnets ?)

There are a lot of Hudson River heros out there.....have you ever been in an air traffic control tower ? Somebody is flying all those aircraft. How many plane crashes have you heard of ?

So , now we can add PILOTS to the list of "people society takes for granted" along with Cops, Firefighters, our get the idea.

Then for some reason I thought about POLITICS..and how many losers(think Blago) make it into politics....... and why there can't be more Cpt. Sullys in Chicago, DC or Harrisburg...but then - WHO WOULD FLY THE PLANES ?

God Bless Captain Sully and all the men & women who take our lives in their hands each day

Am I the only one that thinks the Oral Sex scene in YES MAN was out of place ?

WARNING- rated R

Jim Carrey's new movie Yes Man is good...But..

I mean it's Big Laugh funny, It's clever, It's got a few life lessons, memorable characters -it's even warm.

All the more reason I was so shocked by the Oral Sex scene with the Jim Carrey's senior citizen neighbor. Totally unnecessary. In fact..the scene starts out cute, then moves to raunch and then is revisited later in the movie by another character. The movie really flows until this frat-house pig moment.

and it's a shame...because it's been a while since we've seen Carrey's true comic genius on display. He really is brilliant, daring and why the gutter detour in the middle of such a fun film ?

the movie is actually rated PG-13
