Dr. Randy Pausch’s farewell lecture. Have a good weekend.

My wife is not an email-er. She doesn't send me cute little notes all day; she's a busy attorney. If she needs me she calls, but otherwise we do our jobs with no communication during the day.
Today she sent me this. As rare as the occasion I watched it.

She sent be the version from ABC GMA -
Dying Professor's Lecture of a Lifetime

There are various installation currently on You Tube.

I like this because there was no talk about religion or being saved, except for a death bed conversion to MAC's. He talks about life lessons, life.

Take a look at this when you have time.

The Good and the Bad

Senate deals legal blow to Guantanamo prisoners
The US Senate Wednesday narrowly rejected an attempt to allow 'war on terror' prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to challenge their detention in federal courts.

Senators voted 56-43 in favor of the bill, but the final tally was short of the 60 votes needed under Senate rules for it to move forward.

The bill would have restored the ancient writ of habeas corpus to inmates, giving them recourse to the US civil justice system.

Players fighting for jobs at Fall Series

The golf season is complete, but it's not. A four-week grind through the FedEx Cup playoffs is over, but a seven-week grind is about to begin. The PGA Tour awarded its biggest prizes of the year on Sunday at the Tour Championship, but it still has plenty more to dole out.

Beautiful Weekend

This had been a most beautiful day, cool and sunny with a little bit of warmth from the sun. Golf in the morning, playing with my son in the afternoon.

I'm doing the raking the leaves thing, letting him jump onto them like I did when young. I know the leaves are full of allergens, but it's a lot of fun, and so far so good.

Someone published OJ's book. Greed has no boundaries.

You have a great weekend.

Keeping it Real

Does Tiger have FedEx, and POY, wrapped up?

I don’t know but the greens are in pretty bad shape.
Now the PGA Tour postseason “dance” has another irregularity — faulty flooring. Drought conditions
have left the greens at East Lake Golf Club looking like the sands of Iwo Jima. The say the grass is always greener on the other side, but that’s not the case if you’re traveling I-20 East out of Atlanta.

I was watching a Nationals game the other night, they were playing the Marlins and it was surprising to
see how few fans there were in Florida. I think it was somewhere around ten thousand.

Obama Offers Most Extensive Plan Yet for Winding Down War

Someone needs to run with this.

Iraq on the mind.

Posting to keep this alive.

I gave up a golf day to get my lawn in shape. Autumn approaches making this a much needed task.

Listening to a CNN discussion on Iraq. If the whole conversation has not gone around in circles for an a hour I'm a toad.


Frank Rich in the Times - As the Iraqis Stand Down, We’ll Stand Up

IT will be all 9/11 all the time this week, as the White House yet again synchronizes its drumbeating for the Iraq war with the anniversary of an attack that had nothing to do with Iraq. Ignore that fog and focus instead on another date whose anniversary passed yesterday without notice: Sept. 8, 2002. What happened on that Sunday five years ago is the Rosetta Stone for the administration's latest scam.
