CURRENT EVENTS

Under Attack

 

BOOK OF THE WEEK

Everything is so grim and politically correct, I can hardly stand it. I’ve suggested this funny and easy to read self-help book before and thought I would just mention it again.

A Goomba’s Guide to Life

By Steven R. Schirripa

Attention would-be paesans:  Not sure how to properly accessorize your track suit with gold chains?  Now The Sopranos’ own Bobby Bacala, exposes the inner mysteries of this unique Italian-American hybrid in A Goomba’s Guide to Life so that anyone can walk, talk, and live like a guy “from the neighborhood.” (Source: goodreads)

MOVIE, PLAY OR TV SHOW OF THE WEEK

I saw a lot of great movies this week and it was so hard to just pick one, but even if this movie is 30 years old, I found it still worth watching. Not to mention the lead character in this film, Vinnie Antonelli, always reminded me of my departed friend Mike.

My Blue Heaven (1990)

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

“Fortunate Son”

By Creedence Clearwater Revival

The lyrics to the 1969 song reference rich people who orchestrate wars and then draft the poor to fight in them. (Source: John Fogerty)

The well-to-do protected their sons via college deferments. Then they decided to go one better and simply get rid of the draft leaving our military to the poor and those who wish to be warriors, rather than sharing the burden throughout society.

    • Thank you very much for commenting. Yes, the world is an interesting place. I don’t know if it is true or not, but someone once told me the Chinese had a curse that went like this, “May you live in interesting times.”
