My firstborn has left the nest, having now been successfully installed at her college.
I’m prouder than I’ve ever been in my life — but also slightly heartbroken.
For her (since I know she’ll probably see this):
Van Morrison – “Brown-Eyed Girl.”
(I convinced her, when she was 4, that the song was about her.)
So, there WAS some fire-spitting rhetoric at the Convention — but it was buried early in the program, and not covered by anyone (except CSPAN).
Sure, it was Dennis Kucinich, who has all the speechmaking style of Kermit the Frog on crystal meth, but it was as close to a barn-burner as the Convention has seen so far.
What needs to happen, though, is for one of the prime-time headliners (Clinton, Biden or Gore), to deliver the same sort of message, with the same passion, married to their far superior speaking skills….which would be carried by the major media outlets.
