Also, coming to a Tuesday night close:
(who should, by the way, follow the pattern of Lost and just put everyone out of their purgatory misery)
I have just one question: Why were the only shows that I watched, all on Tuesday? Strange.

We had many "M"-azing adventures in Idaho Falls, or I.F. as the locals call it...or at least they called it I.F. when I went to the "M"-azing Ricks College about a hundred years ago.
It was an amazingly beautiful weekend.
I'm trying to talk the hubby into buying some potbellies of our own...

Two nice surprises...
I fell in love with Lee DeWyze...he'll win it for sure. He almost made me wish I had watched it more than hit or miss this season...(P.S. The Harry Connick week...one of the best ever on AI-He was so hilarious, that for the first time ever, the producers did an "out-take segment". I laughed HARD!)
But back to Lee- he gave me chills...cutie pie too.
Bigger surprise though? (Hold your gag reflex please, hear me out...) Justin Bieber performed and he was really good. He sounded great live- I mean he even sounded like the boy that he is. I was truly shocked to have that reaction. However, it really is best to just close your eyes and listen. I'm sorry, the hair freaks me out.

It's not that I don't have some sympathy for Bob Bennett and his resounding defeat on Saturday at the Republican convention, but his statement to the press after his loss sums up exactly why he lost:
(Speaking of his voting record)
"Looking back on them -- with one or two very minor exceptions -- I wouldn't have cast any of them any differently even if I'd known at the time it would cost me my career because I have always done the best I can to cast the vote that I think is best for the state and best for the country."
Another politician who has substituted his judgment for that of his constituents. Once again, we are a representative republic. You are voted in to represent the wishes of your constituents. When you stop doing that, you are voted out.
That is what happened to Mr. Bennett.
It might happen to Mr. Hatch.

I gave two hours of my day today to George Washington. I love this man.
Did you see that former President Bill Clinton was named a "hero" this week by Time magazine? The man that taught us that character didn't matter in a President?
Bill Clinton, George Bush, Barack Obama...all three could use a one on one with the man that taught us that character is in fact everything.
George Washington, where art thou????
