Just a few random thoughts and musings on this very nice day.
National Borders: Pretty much all the homes in my neighborhood have fences around them. Most people would not cross the borders of a neighbor's home without an invite or permission. Why does applying that simple principle to a country make one a racist or a xenophobe? Until immigration policy is made realistic and enforceable, all immigration should be suspended.
NCAA Tournament: I greatly enjoyed many of the games this year but found the Men's final a bit lackluster. Both teams looked tired and I thought the officials called the game too tight. It was a pretty physical game but I thought they could have lightened up a bit. The Women's tourney was really good, pretty exciting games. Mississippi State's women played some great ball. It would have been exciting if they had gone on to win the whole thing. But South Carolina played too strong. I do think it may be time to get rid of the possession arrow and let them jump for it. It's unfortunate when a good defensive play results in a tie-up and the ball just goes back to the team that lost it because of the arrow.
Ghost In The Shell: Went to see it last week with #1 Son. While not a big fan of manga, I did enjoy the movie. The whole "whitewashing" controversy is silly in my opinion. It's just make-believe, not real life.
Russia: It is absolutely surreal watching Democrats, some Republicans, and the MSM crying, "They hacked the election" over and over as if repetition of the charge, absent any real evidence, will make thinking people believe it. I don't believe anything that comes out of Washington D.C. or any of the network and cable news outlets.
