Golden Glob

I loathe awards ceremony but I watch them anyway. The glitz, the glamour, the drunkenness, the profanity, the incoherence, the slanderous insults, the near nudity, the feeble inane comedy and yes, the talent too, never cease to amaze me.

There are so many Golden Globe awards for a plethora of categories few can remember all the winners. So I give kudos to two. Thank God, DiCaprio won the best actor in a comedy ("Wolf of Wall Street" was a comedy?) as he has been passed over so many times. He was extraordinary in the "Wolf of Wall Street" even though I have seen only short snaps of it. I will see it within 24 hours!

Second bow is to "12 Years a Slave" which I did see and recommend the Duck Dynasty intellectual midgets see it too. It will give Papa Duck a new slant on what he thinks is the contentment of former slaves whose progeny he met working in the fields. Of course, he knows from that experience that slavery could not have been that bad because they were, as he observed, so happy and spoke not a word about their hard life or the slavery that brought that life to them. Well, it was that bad and more. Everyone in this nation should see this film that shows that it was and KNOW about that which your nation is. Yes, it has an impact, and a big one, on all of us. 


In my opinion this film is the best yet on the history, tenor and utter insufferable brutality of the slave in this nation. See it and know!

Why?

The huge GW Bridge closure scandal takes yet another twist. MSNBC's commentator the brilliant Steve Kornacki floats what could be the more plausible major impetus for Christie and/or his administration's closing down the lanes of the GW bridge without informing most especially those who would be impacted by the mammoth traffic jam. Isn't it always follow the money. Leave it to Steve Kornacki to be even more brilliant than anyone has a right to be! Who knew about this huge multi-billion buck project in Ft. Lee? Steve Kornacki knows another major possible reason surrounding the scandal--as if we needed one more! I paste the link to Kornacki's explanation here or below.

The bottom line is no matter what the reason, the massive traffic jam impeding even emergency vehicles and impacting thousands of innocent's lives not to mention national security is the major fallout. So add a question to the metaphoric traffic mess: What did Christie know, when did he know it and the biggest question all is why was it done!
