The Return Of The Lightning

 

Call up McFly and Doc Brown......the lightning returns, kiddies

Call up McFly and Doc Brown......the lightning returns, kiddies

I’ve been a bit sporadic on posting recently, so let’s use the lightning to touch on a few things going on out here, shall we?

 

Congrats to the Lake Show......Kobe finally got one as a leader, well done.

I neglected to acknowledge this year’s NBA champions, congrats to the LA Lakers, who took control of their series with the Orlando Magic early and never looked back.  Kobe Bryant and company deserved to win, they played like champs down the stretch and the Magic had no answers.  I’d just like to add that those words were among the toughest that I’ve ever had to type…..so be it.

 

Breezy gets off easy.....who didn't see this coming?

Breezy gets off easy.....who didn't see this coming?

Chris Brown pleaded guilty to one count of felony assault against his former girlfriend, singer Rihanna and accepted the terms of a plea arrangement that will have him serve 180 days of community labor in his native Virginia, as well as being under supervised probation for five years, & enrolling in a domestic violence program.  Brown also has to maintain a distance of 50 feet from Rihanna, 10 feet if they should happen upon an industry function that they both are attending.  I like this guy, he is a super talent that stands out in the landscape of crap music acts currently on the public’s conscience.  I think he got off kind of easy, considering the beatdown that he gave out.  If he keeps his nose clean and finds a way to lower his profile, as well as making an honest effort to address the demons that were with him that fateful night, he just might get around this.  I just hope he realizes his mistakes and finds a way to move on…….and I wish him a lot of luck.

 

You can just look at this guy and tell that he's not right.....nor is that election that he just won.

Elections were held in Iran last week, amid internationally heard cries of fraud and voter intimidation.  Violent protesters of the election were cracked down upon by the Iranian government after the Interior Ministry announced a victory by incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.  In this most unstable part of the world, how can anyone truly accept that elections such as these are valid?  Ahmadinejad is a shifty character, much in the long tradition of despotic Middle Eastern leaders, and I have no doubt he and his minions manipulated this election.  This place has been a quagmire for the last 40 years; nothing that happened in this situation would seem to change that.

More lightning, next post……stay tuned.
