(Joe Pesci in Goodfellas.)

Yesterday, the Dragon Lady drove to Pusan.  She took the Children of the Rice to see their Korean grandma.  They plan to visit a water park later this week.  It's the middle of winter.  I don't get it.

I made bacon and eggs for dinner.  The meal sucked.  I'm not a very good cook.  I just don't possess the patience required to fry and bake food.  My demons have demons.

I watched Goodfellas.  The movie is a true work of art.  Joe Pesci won an Oscar for his performance as a deranged gangster.  He's funny and scary at the same time.  Pesci's a talented guy.

Unforgiven came next.  Clint Eastwood plays a psychopath named William Muny.  Gene Hackman is magnificent as Little Bill, a sadistic sheriff who enjoys spilling blood. 

Unforgiven is Eastwood's best film.  And that's saying a lot.  Clint is a national treasure.  The man's a genius.

I prayed to the Christ God.  I said the Lord's Prayer on bended knees.  I refuse to babble like a pagan.

I went to bed.  I didn't dream.  I woke up and made coffee.  Then I read the paper.  There was another school shooting.  A student in California got blasted with a shotgun.  He's still alive.

I turned on Fox News.  Hannity discussed gun control with disgruntled pistol-packing New Yorkers.  I feel their pain.  I'm a big fan of the 2nd Amendment, too.

It's 3:33 p.m.  I'm currently viewing On the Record.  I shall spend the rest of the day relaxing on my sofa.

Anyway, talk to you later.  God bless.


  1. I saw that Hannity program you were talking about. I don't usually like watching Hannity because he can be such a dick, but that particular show was an exception. I think it's a disturbing thing what that newspaper did, to publish a list of registered gun owners, for reasons that don't make any logical sense. I think that is really a case of the press overstepping its bounds.

    It's gonna' end up where people who want a gun for self or home protection are gonna' have to acquire one illegally, just to preserve their privacy from the newspaper. I can see an underground weapons black market springing up in no time.

    1. I believe in the right to bear arms. But I don't own any guns. I'm afraid my wife would shoot me. No kidding.



Thanks for stopping by. Smith.
