Back here discussing a few

You might have noticed I haven’t posted in a day or three. Ah, one word: “Verizon.” Long story and don’t want to talk about it right now.

I am on business in San Antonio overnight. Made the 4.5-hour drive from Beaumont on I-10. The speed limit was raised on most highways in Texas to 75 mph so more people will burn hydrocarbons. I can’t drive 55, but I can drive 75. For some reason, driving 75 feels like you are driving 82.5 mph. You know what I mean?

There are GOP primaries in Arizona and Michigan tonight. Whoopie! I will be watching NCIS x 2 and “Justified.” If you’ve not watched “Justified” on FX, you are missing a hell of a show. It is a very well-written, well-filmed and well-acted program. The first makes sense, of course, since it is based on Elmore Leonard’s novels “Riding the Rap” and “Pronto,” as well as the short story “Fire in the Hole.” That alone should make you want to watch “Justified” if you don’t already. I have already covered this subject before including the fact that the show has a cool Website with a couple of interactive games to help with that time you’ve been wanting to waste. Right?

As far as the primaries, if Mittens loses in Michigan — where his father was governor and CEO of American Motors (AMC) — then he’s stick-a-fork-in-the-toast done. Well, maybe not but it won’t make that nomination any easier to attain. George Wildken (where do they get all the weird names, Mitt’s name is Willard Mitt Romney) Romney also ran for the GOP nomination. He tried and failed back in 1968. That was when Tricky Dick Nixon was chosen for his first term.

I listened to Rush Limberjaw for about two minutes while driving today. He said there is no way that Obama will be reelected whether Romney or Santorum wins the Republican nomination. I think Rush sounds like he might be on the Oxy again.  I disagree, vigorously, with Rush’s ridiculous position just as I disagree that Rush is not a big balloon full o’ methane gas.

I’m back. Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back. That reminds me. I was zipping through the radio stations while driving to San Antonio and caught on a Houston urban music station a Zydeco version of “Movin On Up,” the old theme from “The Jeffersons” TV series. My friend Rene always called the show, “The Jeffersonians.” It was something to do. I am not for sure who recorded the Zydeco version.
