1) Mr. Trump is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business - which technically, folks, makes him an Ivy Leaguer. I ask you, though, have you ever seen a more ill informed member of that contingent? I mean, yes, he obviously knows business and all but, damn, on some of that other stuff it's frightening, his ignorance. For instance, when Savannah Guthrie asked him if he thought that there was a right to privacy in the Constitution, he responded, "Yeah, I guess so." And then when she tried to tie that concept to abortion, he questioned her on it, "So, what does that have to do with abortion?" The frigging guy didn't even know that Roe vs. Wade had been decided on that issue. Youza, huh?............2) You know who I think would be an excellent Democratic President? Ed Rendell. I really and truly like that guy. a) He has a lot of common sense. And b) he also has an uncanny ability to compromise (this, while, at the same time, retaining core principles). Take, for instance, his view on taxing the rich. Instead of focusing strictly on this arbitrary number of $250,000, he's willing to up that threshold to as far as a million. And on reforming Medicare and Medicaid, I really like his position on the Federal government being able to negotiate with drug companies on prices. From what I can gather, folks, this one act alone could save the government tens of billions of dollars a year....He's a problem solver, I guess is what I'm saying.............3) Celtics 96 Knicks 93. So, how do you like me now, Spike Lee!!!!!?............4) Yeah, yeah, I know, the series isn't nearly over and, yes, the Knicks could definitely still rally and win it. But it's just that I'm really starting to get a little weary of Mr. Lee and his antics. I mean, yeah, it was amusing 15-16 years ago (his back and forth with Indiana's Reggie Miller, especially) but, enough already!
