What’s he got to talk about?

So tomorrow the President will deliver his SOTU address–and I”m just wondeirng, what is he really going to talk about?

Sure there were elections in Iraq and Afghanistan, and so on and so forth and there’s Iran….that’s the kind of stuff I’m expecting.

What’s he really going to talk about domestically? Besides from the 2 new SCOTUS justices, has anything important been accomplished on the domestic agenda? Soc. Sec. reform is/was DOA and well, his tax-reform panel also came up lame.

I’m wondering…will there be anything new or novel unveiled tomorrow night? If so–what?

Cleaning Day

Yeah, enough procrastinating on my part. I’m gonna clean up my apartment today, I guess it’s a good thing that it’s raining oiutside, even moer motivation to stay in and work.

Dance…dance…dance

As previously noted, the Sister is participating in the Columbia University Dance Marathon right now
(all proceeds benefit the Elizabeth Glazer Pediatric AIDS Foundation)

Tonight I’ll go over to Columbia and pay the sister a visit. I’m also going to be taking some pictures (yes mom, I will get photos) and see how she’s doing during this 28hr event!

After all, the sister is the one in the family who can dance.
Me dancing? Forget about it!

Brandeis terror threat and Jack Bauer

Over at Ankle Biting Pundits is this post:

What Would Jack Bauer Do? Library Won’t Assist In Terror Plot Investigation

It’s not quite what you see on shows like 24, but last week there was a very tense 10 hour “standoff” involving the Newton (Mass.) Police Department and the FBI on one side, and, get this, the Newton Free Library on the other. What was the reason for this stare down? A terrorist threat had been made against Brandeis University from one of the library’s computer. When the police and FBI came, the Library Director refused to let them search the computer without a warrant. According to one officer:

Now what would Jack Bauer have done?

Bonus thought: What if Bauer were to go to the Brandeis campus directly to investigate the threat? Who do you think Bauer would’ve dealt with first (this is Bauer after all)?

Would he even visit with Jehuda?
