There are great people...

Thanksgiving is upon us and we all need to take a little time to reflect on what we are thankful for. So much is written about the faults people have these days. The news is overrun with stories of horror and evil. Celebrities cannot seem to deny their lives of excess and overindulgence. With all of this said, I just read a story about Chris Spielman (here), a former NFL player who recently lost his wife to cancer. In the early stages of her fight, Speilman took a leave from the NFL to be with his wife and help her through her treatment. Now this is not something that an average man would not do, it becomes shocking when the act is completed by someone famous. I need to read more positive reports these days to remember the good in people. It is out there we just have to acknowledge and be thankful for it.

Did Anyone Watch?

Ok, I am not a Sarah Palin fan. Never have been. As a Republican, I was completely devastated last year when she was picked as the VP candidate. But of course I wanted to watch her Oprah interview just to see if I was right in my original dislike. And for the record, yes I was! She seemed fake, scripted and too gung ho about her "wonderful marriage". Here's the thing; I like people with imperfections. I want to know that you and your husband fight every once in awhile. I want to know that when your stupid-ass ex maybe son-in-law decides to reveal your secrets and pose for Playgirl that it pisses you off. The entire interview seemed tense and superficial. Oprah tried but there was no warmth at all. Just wanted to sound off. Did anyone else watch?
