Well , back to work losers........

i only refer to you as losers because none of us have hit the lottery and we are all still working.

where to begin. finally it looks like new orleans is mostly cleared out. who knows how long its going to take to drain that city much less make it habitable. i dont know whos to blame for our slow response but i hope the problem gets fixed. i know that everybody wants a quick answer as to whos to blame but like everything the answers are complicated and cant be found in two minutes of research. i do think that the man in charge of fema should actually have some knowledge of how to deal with a disaster. national guard should have been there much sooner. well lets get off that for awhile. this city is going to take months to dry out. every single building will need to be gutted and rehabed. the entire infrastructure of that city will need to be rebuilt. think about that for a second. levee's, roads, sewers, power....everthing needs to be rebuilt. its a daunting task. it will be years before thats a viable city again.

oprah will be doing a live show from the astrodome today. oprah should keep away from those poor people. by doing her show she will make people think that these people are being helped and by that she will be doing more harm. oprah only looks upon these people as ratings. if there wasnt money to be made she wouldnt be there. please oprah...stay out of the astrodome. these people dont need you in their lowest times.

it was interesting to watch kanye west commit tv suicide on nbc. regardless wether what he said was true or not it was great tv. as kanye went on his rant mike myers looked like he was about to drop a duece in his pants. as i watched i turned to my wife and asked her how much longer this was going to be allowed to air and then kanye did it. he said "george bush dont care about black people" and then he was gone. he wasnt allowed to sing with the people at the end. way to go kanye. i applaud people being able to speak their minds on tv. we own the airwaves ...we should be able to speak.

speaking of that the nbc show had tim mcgraw, faith hill, harry connick jr and others. this isnt what i would call the a-team. i figured nbc, the network with snl who gave tons of bands a stage to play on, would call in some favors...but no.....they didnt. at best this was a lukewarm show.

ok people, get a start on your week.

What I loved about the Kayne West remark was his delivery. He was not using an angry tone, but rather could have been saying, "pass the butter". It was the casual way he tossed it out there that cracked me up.

I agree Oprah should stay away or at least stay away with the cameras. I was so annoyed that the press kept talking about Macy Gray being there. Yes, it's great that she was there helping, but if it was really all about helping why not simply help, rather than ensuring the entire free world knows you are helping?

I definitely agree with you on the whole Ophrah thing as well as with the half-assed charity-drive show. Very pathetic indeed. I was out of town and have missed tv except for the past couple days...what did Kanye West say?

kanye west said "pres bush dont care about black people". i wish i could say for certain that isnt true....but i cant

That is indeed, what he said.

I was surprised by the lack of performers for the concert as well, and even people reading the crap in between the country songs. Eli Manning was the best athelete they could dust off? WTF?

yes, this definately wasnt the a-team of fundraisers. glen close, john goodman ....etc. nbc should be able to do better. i'm glad i wasnt the only one this occurred to.

Wasn't the head of FEMA breeding horses or something like that before he got this job?
I heard there will be another fundraising event by all the networks together.
Also, did anyone see Celine Dion on Larry King? I agree with her views, but she needs to take yoga or something or she'll have a heart attack very soon!

Ugh I hate working! And I think George Bush has no idea who black people even are. He just thinks their super tan white people!

Just because he's the president does that mean he has to like everyone?
