Opinions in the Shorts: Vol. 67

On the Honor Fest
I’m kicking myself for not attending the recent Glenn Beck festival in Washington. Sorry, but I had to match my socks. By the way, that was as much of a nonpolitical event as most other stuff in Washington.

By the way, has Minority Leader Boehner (R-OH) followed his own suggestion of putting grown-ups in charge by resigning? Just another example of his inability to practice what he preaches.

Columnist Maureen Dowd suggests using Kathleen Turner’s line from Body Heat to describe Mr. Boehner: You’re not too smart, are you? I like that in a man.

On Two Brilliant Columns
I cheered when reading this great column by Kathleen Parker. I especially love this line: Little else seems to be working lately as we sliver ourselves into a thousand shards of blithering self-interest.

Earlier I mentioned the Maureen Dowd’s column – here is another good one!

On Dimly Lit Paris
Paris Hilton cannot tell the difference between chewing gum and cocaine? And why is this person in the news?

On a Tea Party Win
With Senators Lisa Markowski and Ted Stevens out of the picture, can Tea Party favorite and Sarah Palin endorsed Joe Miller lead the charge in Alaska as their new King of Pork?

On Some College Football
I never thought of Boise State being one of the most hated teams in America. Check this out.

Although I shook my head at the announcement, here are two good articles about the situation from Michigan and Wisconsin.

On Tasty Recipes
Our dinner group had Hawaiian night a few weeks ago. My wife and I were responsible for appetizers, which were a big hit. Here are the recipes for pineapple salsa and Hawaiian chicken wings.

Another party host requested my chocolate wine cake. Yes, another hit, so here’s the recipe.

On a Holiday Weekend
For an end of summer bash, Cincinnati has a huge fireworks display on the river. Here’s a very short video of my favorite part – the fireworks waterfall from a bridge. Have a safe Labor Day holiday weekend.

Comment with respect.
