WHat’s better than videos of a bridge blowing up… an HD slow motion video of a bridge blowing up… Lake Marble Falls Bridge demolished last month by Texas DOT — shots courtesy of Kirk Drummond
Collective Soul. Tell me how you love to hate me…
According to reports I’ve seen she kept getting out of the car and given officer safety concerns when the nice Po-Po tells you to please stay in the vehicle then please stay in the vehicle. Would she have been arrested if she wasn’t Reese Withserspoon? Most definitely.
The rest of the story… Reese Witherspoon knows how to properly apologize for acting like an idiot. We’ve all done things like this (acted like an ass I mean — whether or not police or alcohol was involved). Her apology is below:
Does she mean it? I have no idea, but I suspect she does. She can’t give the officer a gift of course and her husband’s case is making its way through the process so I would advise her to not say too much more, but acknowledging him in her statement is good.
No doubt the politicians think they are responsible for any economic growth while greedy businesses are responsible for any shortfalls. It’s an abusive relationship people have with government these days.
The fact that academia in general is a mess (I say get rid of the so-called elite universities as they are probably irredeemable, but I digress) is no secret. So-called scholars or even legitimate scholars have allowed their biases to blind them to historiography 101 — that authoritative histories are not written in the middle of things. They come years afterwards when the dust settles and the scores are finally tallied. The Presidency of George W. Bush really brought out this tendency of many to become unhinged. Instapundit linked to this great op-ed from The Washington Post by Prof. Stephen Knot of the U.S. Naval War College, pointing this out.
Go read the whole thing… No one ever accused PhDs of having common sense and in the case of a corrupted academy even fairness has finally exited the building with many. Of course — most history professors don’t teach like that. The ones that get on TV seem to though (and there are many others no doubt) so you can trace some of that back to leftist bias in both the media and in our so-called elite institutions. My gut is that Bush will be middle to above average in the coming years and that Obama will linger for 50 years or so like JFK has… pumped up by a cadre of journalists and academics that “came of age” in the hype and that later on he will drop — though Obama will drop down to Carter status.
BUT — I preface all of that with “I don’t really know yet”. I will be dead and gone before much of what is needed to be known will be available to competent and fair-minded historians on either Bush or Obama.
