This was a quiet Sunday. I slept late, woke up thinking of Son Guy, Son Jason, Robin, Nellie, and the late Tabasca Cat. My Emails revealed, upon some checking, that I had neglected to actually send back Part One of Tom Grace's "narrative" about the formation of the Macedoneans, based on his interview with me, from a week or so ago. My memory had slipped a cog, as it does more and more, and I had neglected to put an address on my suggestions . . . so I wrote a note to him -- then, followed with the revised text.
Later in the day, I watched a voter focus group on Fox vetting the remaining Republican Candidates. It continues to amaze me how few Republicans can see that Ron Paul's candidacy is the only one that really makes any sense for them. They don't seem to realize that they will never bring down the deficit if they continue to beat the war drums and refuse to reduce the Pentagon budget.
Later, I watched the Third [or was it the Fourth?] episode of LUCK on HBO. The show has a mild pull for me because I like to watch horses running, but for the life of me, I can't figure out what the plot of the miniseries will turn out to be. Star Dustin Hoffman appears to be a lackadaisical gambler who is trying to gain control of Santa Anita Race Track. [Lotsa-luck!] A group of touts won a large purse in Episode 1, and invested their winnings in a horse, the same one that Gambler Hoffman purchased on a whim. [Lotsa luck!] Nick Nolte appears emerging as a solitary owner of another horse, which he is grooming as a ringer. [Lotsa luck!] What a fourth character is all about, I can't say. Yeah, lotsa luck to me, too, on this one!
David Milch, creator of DEADWOOD, is behind this series, though, and that should be enough to ensure a good dramatic experience. However, the pace of the show so far is putting me to sleep. The point seems to be the strange, multifarious circle that "luck," "chance," "God's Will," appears to ring around our lives.
Macresarf1 would write no more this day.
