The Superbowl on Chadwick's New Cardboard TV

I traveled from Berkeley to the Sunset District in San Francisco & rushed thru Golden Gate Park to make it to our friend Chadwick's party on time for Superbowl kick-off. Altho he had promised a real television in his invitation, it had not arrived yet, so we spent the first hour making one out of cardboard - with football player puppets, half-time show entertainers, cheerleaders, a Goodyear blimp, & an update-able score-board. It was a work of art.

And while we're on the subject of manly tackling, this was my favorite Republican response to the proposed repeal of "Don't Ask Don't Tell" - the Republican Representative from San Diego Country, Duncan Hunter on NPR:
HUNTER: No, because I think it's bad for the cohesiveness and the unity in the military especially those that are in close combat, close quarters in country right now, it's not the time to do it. I think the military is not civilian and I think the folks that have been in the military in very close situations with each other, there has to be a special bond there and I think that bond is broken. If you open up the military to transgenders, to hermaphrodites to gays and lesbians.
HOST: Transgenders and hermaphrodites?
HUNTER: Yea, that's going to be part of this thing. It's not just gays an lesbians, it's this whole thing.
I'm glad his homophobia is non-discriminatory.
