Unusual fates

How odd is it that the original voices of BOTH Tigger and Piglet pass away on the same weekend? I don't know why I never realized that John Fiedler was the voice of Piglet; as soon as I heard that it clicked perfectly (if you don't know his name, you know his face--he's been in nearly everything, including being the last fellow "RedJack" possessed in the STC episode "Wolf in the Fold").

I figure Disney will be making Faux-Pooh movies until the end of time; Paul Winchell was replaced by talented voice actor Jim Cummings some while back (he also plays Pooh since the death of Sterling Holloway), so I'm sure they'll find a reasonable voice replacement... but in my mind, they're NEVER the same. Someone else is voicing Dexter (Dexter's Laboratory) these days, and I couldn't even watch an entire episode, 'cause it just wasn't RIGHT.

Today I read some of the NY Times before work, and as usual, whenever I read national news, I get depressed. It took a few hours to shake it off, and I'm not even sure why, since I thought I'd pretty much become resigned to overall American stupidity and narrow-minded bigotry here... and then yet another good article from Frank Rich. Also a little depressing, since he's likely right. BUT... I was cheered by NPR's "All Things Considered" on the way home, as one of the commentators said Bush was gearing up to give a speech which has to assure Americans that the troops will NOT be in Iraq indefinitely, while at the same time assuring Iraqis that the troops WILL be in Iraq indefinitely.

I figure everyone who supports Bush will think he pulls this interesting task off admirably.

We Live in Creepy Times
Florida is getting to be right up there with Kansas in becoming one of the stupider quagmires of bigotry and neoconservatism. Sigh. And I had always thought rather well of Florida before Shiavo et al.

The Frank Rich article makes a lot of sense. If you're not with the Bush administration, you're a traitorous liberal. Sigh.

You know, if I could ask God to drop a big boulder on any one person in the Bush administration, I'd choose Karl Rove. I personally think his insidious strategies cause more harm than almost anything else BushCo does -- mainly because so much of what he does is out of sight.
