      Reasonable accommodations of people’s needs will be made. If they are not, unreasonable ones will be. Those who cannot understand that will have blood on their hands along with those who decide they have had enough. Too many have spent too long with generations raised in affluence, scared of losing what they have. They do [...]

Da sticky bun come soon

Advertisers are evolving on youtube. In the run up to the Superbowl, quite a few of them have been popping up and immediately grab attention with their cleverness. These two ads for Volkswagon and Toyota Rav 4 are hilarious and have me watching them over instead of clicking them off as soon as possible.  They make me want to go out and drive a new car.

First up, the guy from Minnesota with the Jamaican patois:

And this one is for everyone who has ever wished some doctor would tell them they have a chocolate deficiency:

Q.: What’s wrong with this picture?

What will be her next act?

Hillary said goodbye to the State Department yesterday.  While there will be endless speculation of her running in 2016, I think it would be a mistake to table our anger and disappointment over what is happening now in order to focus on a savior in four years.  I’m going to continue to pay attention to what’s going on in the present and assume that she isn’t going to run.

What will she do now?  No clue but there are very few women with the authority mojo of Hillary Clinton.  What the country desperately needs right now is to see a woman who has the riveting attention grabbing power of a man.  Someone who can be linked to from multiple blogs and op/ed pages with regularity.  Someone who shows up in the Plumline all the fricking time based on what she says and knowing that what she says comes from a place of experience, knowledge and doing her homework.  We need a powerful voice that comes from a woman but does not come from a “feminine” point of view, if you get my drift.

So, if I were her and the New York Times offered me a gig on the op/ed page, I’d probably take it.  I mean, among all the other things I had planned before breakfast.

Just sayin’.

Here’s the State Department farewell:
