Well, Wipe the Egg Off My Face

Smiling face, that is. Sarah Palin has thus far proved to be a game-changer in this election. The Republicans can now run on Obama's theme of change, and convincingly so.

I must profess I really don't understand the Obama phenomenon. In my view, he's a fundamentally flawed candidate because his resume it too thin. (But it won't always be that way!) When was the last time you saw the need for a presidential candidate to compare their resume with the vice-presidential candidate from the other camp?

Be that as it may, Obama is still a formidable phenomenon because roughly half of our voting populace likes him. Hopefully, his supporters understand that his opponent is a very qualified candidate that is also supported by roughly half the voting populace.

But what if Obama loses? How will his supporters react? Will they accept defeat or deny it? I hope they give that some thought before the first Tuesday in November.

Golden Retriever Love Brigade!

The Golden Retriever Love Brigade is back! Celebrate our independence and spread the love in Gualala and Point Arena this year!

Bring your Golden to the Cypress Center on Saturday, July 6th or Pt. Arena on Sunday, July 7th. Or come to both!

On Saturday meet uphill at the water company/KTDE parking lot by 12:40 p.m. The Cypress Center parade lasts about one half hour.

On Sunday assemble at the high school tennis courts at 11 a.m. Be prepare to pick up "accidents" by your Golden. Rick and Jeanne Jackson will provide water for the dogs. Red, white and blue scarves will be available for the dogs, courtesy of Peter and Tony. Elise and Davina will again carry the brigade sign, which will have new embellishments by Jeanne Jackson.

Happy 4th of July!
