23:19That's a 7:30 pace, which was my bogey this year. Huzzah!
- my time in the Turkey Trot this year, results
It's funny though... ever since then, my 54 year-old body has been a big, whiny baby with a balky knee and tingly, achy feet. Jeez, buck up, boys. It was only 3 miles! Oh well. It was worth it. (smile)
Movie: Sixth Sense
Review: 5 bill-stars (out of 5)... best of the best
I re-watched my Sixth Sense DVD last night. The movie is as crisp and gripping as it was 17 years ago. Everything is strong about this movie: script, plot, performances, direction, etc. The scenes related to the daughter videotaping her evil mother are all-time classics.
Sixth Sense is a Top 10 Bill All-time Movie. I don't actually have a Top 10 list, but I am efforting this. Here's a top 100 movie site to wet your beak: www.thetoptens.com/best-movies
I see dead people.

A nice website. Catchy URL.
Two worthy minutes of Trump describing his transition.
Side note: The next video that youtube rolled into after Trump's transition video: Jon Stewart babbling about how we're all hypocrites.Side note #2: For my leftie brothers and sisters... it might be problematic when your most prominent spokespeople are entertainers, comedians, and clowns.
And finally, the ubiquitous Trump twitter account:
So, I signed up for a twitter account. I don't anticipate tweeting anything, and I'm only following two people: Trump and a very famous, talented, beautiful, wonderful 33 year-old mathematician. (smile)
It's pretty cool, I think. Different. The president-elect communicating directly with the people on something like Twitter. It doesn't appear that there's any filter or PR nabob pushing the Trump buttons. I hope he keeps it up. Why not?!? Trump using Twitter channels Ronald Reagan giving speeches directly to the American people and bypassing the media to get his message across.
Here Trump tells us that he's working hard... even on Thanksgiving. (snort!)
Twitter is a cesspool. You can go to Trump's tweet, scroll down and dip your toe into the leftie hate and hysteria. Yeah, I think I'll pass, but it's right there for you. Twitter itself is stupid and leftie, too. Here's their first impulse recommendations on "who to follow". (he he... no thanks)
This is a long, well-written piece.
Not even in office yet, but the Trump presidency is getting more important each day.
- Hysteria - Crooked Hillary's loss hasn't resulted in media introspection. Not even close. The media has doubled-down on the hysteria. This has led to nearly every Trump appointee be branded as a racist or nazi.
- Courage - The leftie hatred of Trump is white hot. They attack Trump and his deplorable supporters and his wife and even his young son. I admire the courage of the man. I admire that he isn't backing down. Supposedly, Trump's family will continue to live in NYNY. So smart. Speaking of...
- Smart - With all the bombast, it's easy to forget how smart Trump is. He out-maneuvered and out-worked Crooked Hillary to win the election. He is now using his talent to be a successful president. To win.
So, I think Trump is important. If the politically-correct left can take Trump down, then they can take anyone down. Leftie pols and media have made themselves clear: If your beliefs aren't in line, then you are deplorable and a racist. Defeating Trump empowers this bogus orthodoxy.
But what if Trump perseveres! Trump is largely channeling Reagan here. His message is patriotic, pro-American, and pro-growth. Hopeful. If this message breaks through, then America has a great chance at a resurgence and a long period of real positivity and freedom.
Huzzah to that!
