a few quick hits…
Buddy: So it seems a federal appeals court has tossed out the prison sentence of former Mayor and folk-hero Buddy Cianci and ordered him to be re-sentenced by a lower court on his conviction for racketeering conspiracy. Under the ruling issued Tuesday in Boston, the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will send the case back to U.S. District Court in Providence for re-sentencing. Buddy, for those of you ignorant to his charms, engineered one of the most impressive revitalization projects ever witnessed. The transformation – the long and painful transformation – of Downtown Providence from dried up factory town into the present day jewel that it is. Sure he kept a little piece of the action for himself, but it was Providence after all, who would have taken him seriously if he didn’t? Let’s hope the judge wises up and let’s Buddy out on time served.
Hanoi Jane: Well, well, well, looks like Jane Fonda is finally expressing regret for giving aid a comfort to an enemy actively seeking to kill our soldiers. Or is she? She does not regret visiting the enemy capital, Hanoi, or being photographed with American prisoners of war there - despite the propaganda value it afforded the enemy. "Both sides were using the POWs for propaganda....It's not something that I will apologize for." Right. And the broadcasts on Radio Hanoi, something she asked the North Vietnamese to do? She went on Radio Hanoi at least 10 times, speaking directly to American pilots and criticizing their bombing of North Vietnam. Well, she doesn’t regret that either. "Our government was lying to us and men were dying because of it, and I felt I had to do anything that I could to expose the lies and help end the war." So all she feels “regret” over is the photo of her straddling the anti-aircraft gun – a weapon specifically used to shoot down American pilots. So why now? Book sales? She is out hawking her biography My Life So Far. Video sales? She is about to release a big anniversary edition of Barbarella (she was hot back then wasn’t she). Genuine regret? Welllll, that’s a little hard to believe, but who knows. Whatever, she isn’t forgiven, and her actions are certainly not forgotten, but it is nice to have her admission that the photo was the "biggest mistake and lapse of judgement of her life" on record.
Oil and Gas Prices: Man when I locked in my home heating oil prices (prepaid) at $1.54/gallon I thought it was outrageously high. Well if you “floated” this winter you’re currently paying right around $2.00. And gas prices? Well, I have to work to find a place charging $2.20/gallon right now (a price my friends in LA can hardly remember – they’ve been paying over that for months and the current price is around $2.60). Any end in site TIBS?
Michael Schaivo: Agree or disagree with the legal decision to allow this ass to kill his wife, but everyone must agree he’s a straight-up jerk right? Let’s just say you give him the benefit of the doubt and agree that he was only “acting on Terri’s wishes,” (‘cause you can’t say he was just trying to relive her suffering – his position was that she was incapable of suffering, which is why it was OK to starve and dehydrate her to death). So let’s give him that for a half a second. Even if that’s the case, how do you defend his decision to throw the family out of the room 20 minutes before she died? How do you defend his refusal to allow Terri to have a Catholic burial? Terri was a practicing Catholic - what happened to him just carrying out her wishes? How do you defend his refusal to let the family have a lock of her hair? Or a small portion of her ashes? Or even to let them know where her ashes will be kept? Buddy’s in jail and this guy is mulling over multi-million dollar book and movie deals. It’s deplorable – let’s hope there’s a special place in hell.
Sports: I was in two NCAA Tournament pools this year, and I won one and took second in the other. It’s a pity I didn’t share my brackets with all of you this year, I may have made you some money (not that I endorse gambling in any way). And the Red Sox-Stankees rivalry is off to a banner start again this year. Sure the Yanks took 2 of 3 from the Sox, but man do the Sox own Rivera. He’s blown two saves against the Sox in as many days, four straight if you go back to the ALCS last year. He’s blown six of his last ten save opportunities against the Sox, and since 2001, he’s blown more saves against the Sox THAN THE REST OF THE LEAGUE COMBINED. He’s the best closer in the history of the game – how is it that we can look so forward to facing him in the ninth?
Finally, golf season is kicking off here (finally) in New England. Can we put an SCG golf weekend together this year?
FREE BUDDY. I actually wrote a letter to the mayor in prison awhile back, and he answered it, in a hand written response. I'm of course just waiting for the right time to sell that on ebay...but I digress.Post a Comment
What Buddy is accused of is the same that most of us do everyday. Setting our own rules.
The speed limit through most cities is 55 on the highway, I know it is in Grand Rapids, but I, a good person and law abiding guy often drive 60-70, but no faster.
Buddy took a dirt farm and turned it into a dream land, and he exceeded his city salary on occasion, but contracts are competitive, and with so many bidders of the same qualifications, occasionaly it might come down to who offers the best perks.
Those who never lived in RI are probably lost at this point...but those that have, you understand.
There is the letter of the law, and the spirit of the law, Buddy, who should be released with time served, is a true scholar of the spirit of the law.
I won't defend Terry's husband's decisons, but i will say that he will someday meet his maker, and that he better start impressing him, as so far, its not looking good.
I am an American, and when the courts say something I disagree with i don't pick up a gun or start a campaign.
If I did, I would certainly have killed an abortion doctor by now.
You get my point.
We all answer to a higher authority..and that guy will.
On the energy thing, gas and crude prices...c'mon, we are the United States of America. We need to start rolling serious grants into non-traditional energy, and get the middle east off our list of foster parents. Too much power for a very unstable region, or religion, whatever you prefer.
On the NCAA, I can say only one thing, I support the Friars, the Providence Friars. You know, Rick Patino was there coach once, and then he coached the Knicks...and then Kentucky...Oh God ok, they suck, but they will rise again. Anyone remember Earny D?????
On the SCG's golf tourniment, I will caddy if in town...but I must be allowed to hand out literature on the benifits of joining the Army National Guard. For all those that care, the age limit for joining the National Guard went up from 35 to 40...so thats one excuse gone.
On a personal note, I would appreciate some opinion on Michael Moore's and others attempt to disrupt the efforts of Military recruiters. The way I look at it, military recruiters are doing there best to prevent a draft. It may sound a bit too liberal, but it's a nice tag line.
