    Barack Obama has purchased a half-hour of prime time television on CBS and NBC for the princely sum of $2 million dollars.

    While millions might enjoy watching a politician talk about himself for 30 minutes straight, I will instead observe Obama's campaign message of "Change" and do so with remote control.:-D

    How can one change the minds of those who do not think? Most people live the ideas their parents gave them, in some case their peers but are they rational. The hardest thing in life is to be honest with oneself and to look hard and examine and reexamine one's beliefs.

    And some people write poetically with seeming lucidity, yet say very little at all.

    That's odd for someone who's trying to champion the masses.

    Sounds like a good time to crank up the xbox 360.
