Re: Barack Obama for President

Not too shy to talk


Barack will make a great president. Part of his whole motivation is to get the two parties to work together. So if he spends all his time slandering and bashing the Republicans, then he's stooping down to their level in this respect (and would lose my respect). Many would say that he has to do this to win the votes. But I'm sorry, if the American people can't see the childishness in this then I blame them, not Barack of the Democrats. I feel he repeatedly and accurately points out the failures of the current administration, and I'm sure he'll pull a number of those cards out tonight.

I never saw the film itself because I was turned off by two things; the author behind it is Stephen King; and the scene where the boys are caught on the trestle by a train is just not credible.

Based on my own experiences of walking a variety of rail and trestles, a train is not only noisy, but it sends vibrations out that can be felt miles down the track. What person walking on a trestle, especially a boy of that age, would be - could be - oblivious to that information? Who would walk across a trestle without putting his hand gently on a rail to feel what the rail is saying?


Justjoe, your story is the stuff of legends.

However, from my train trolling days of yore, I experienced how conventional trains can indeed creep up on you. A friend and I were walking on tracks in Pittsburgh in the same direction a locomotive was headed. Lost in our conversation, we were oblivious to the train approaching from behind. We were not checking behind (like fools) or stopping periodically to feel the tracks because we figured we'd hear the train long before it reached us. This was not the case. One of us perceived the train out of our peripheral vision and motioned the other to jump from the tracks. We narrowly avoided dismemberment. It was almost as if the train was silent until it reached us.

Stand By Me is one of my favorite movies and songs of all time. It's very non-Stephen King like, so I don't think a dislike of other Stephen King works can justify not seeing this movie... especially to rekindle what it felt like to be 13 agian.

I 2nd the notion of posting ads on craigslist, here (guess you kinda did that already), and elsewhere. I had a very successful rideshare experience through craigslist recently (which I posted about here).

I also had lots of success hitchhiking and picking up hitchhikers on the Hawaiian island of Kauai when I was there for several months in 1999/2000. In fact, I made (what appear to be) life-long friends. However, it's a tiny island and it's legal there (or was).

That being said, it's not for everybody and you definitely have to trust your instincts... especially in a mad house like NYC.

What's wrong with an apology? Slavery was institutionalized. That institution would now be making an apology. It's symbolic. Seems perfectly admirable to me.

And I agree, Native Americans deserve one too.

I was cruising the waterfront in front of the Hyatt one evening while those fisherman were holding court. There was also a wedding going on. My impression is that if anyone asked them to leave, they'd laugh.

While I sat, one of them caught a "Mud Fish". It was the ugliest mutant fish I've ever seen. It makes sense that this fish would call this stretch of the Hudson its home.

I always wondered how they got that "sound". I used to think it was a Tres, or another non-guitar stringed instrument. Now I see that it is an electro-acoustic guitar with a capo and an aggressive picking style (and probably a little amp/effect tweaking).

I saw a bunch of cats jamming in front of Pino's on Newark in this style a week ago. Very cool.

I'm ashamed to say that before today I didn't know who Antony Santos was (but probably heard his music in bodegas for years). Thanks for the education. I'm much more familiar with the Dominican Merengue style (ala Juan Luis Guerra, Sergio Vargas ...ever hear "Las Mujeres"? I used to jam hard on that cut).

Not entirely true. If you create an article for something not deemed Wiki-worthy (i.e. - not culturally significant enough), fellow Wikipedians will call it into question and remove it. From what I understand, this happens quite often and with surprising efficiency. See Wikipedia: Your first article for more elaboration on this.

Heroin and crack pipes aside... I think the cheap cigars are used to roll blunts (aka. stripped of tobacco and filled with marijuana, chronic, weed, bud, herb... whatever you want to call it).
