Good Morning, Sunshine

I’ll be loving you until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky.

Clinton and McCain have surprising wins in New Hampshire. Actually, it wasn’t that shocking to me, but some people seem amazed that polls don’t always predict the winner.

All Hip Hop recapped a show on BET that aired while NH primary results were coming in. The special was called What’s In It For Us? and on it, Obama professed his love of and concern about hip hop. Knowing BET, this will air 50 times this week and I’ll be able to catch it.

Prisoner who made a dramatic escape from a New Jersey jail last month was recaptured six blocks from the jail, sleeping on a couch.

Starbucks fired their CEO. Apparently, sales have slowed down considerably in the past year with shares falling 50 percent. See what happens when you skip your grande mocha latte, no whip, skim, with 2 sugars every morning? People lose their jobs, that’s what happens.

    I love that Stevie Wonder line…….Regarding NH Primary: You have to ask yourself the question; which is the party trying to enforce identity verification (Picture DL, SS#, check stub and utility bill) and which party is vehemently opposed stating discrimination and intimidation. Iowa and New Hampshire primaries should not have such bell weather influence in the way the candidates get coverage moving onto later primaries. The crocodile non-teary coverage of Hillary over the past 24 hours was played out like a zapruder film. The media has been experiencing polling problems going back to the 2000 election. Its a feeding frenzy to get election results out first. What would happen if there were to be a 36 or 48 blackout of TV and Radio news prior to the actual voting and until well after all of the votes had been counted. Would the results more accuratly reflect voter sentiment? Why should would anyone get an uptick in votes because of ballot position and who gets the benefit of the stupid voter vote in an open primary State like NH?

    That’s a good question about having no media coverage before a vote. Those loopy headlines and who-knows-where-they-come-from polls definitely have an impact on how people vote. I also agree that two states shouldn’t be put “in charge” of deciding which candidates should throw in the towel. What if the first primaries were in California and Texas or Nebraska and Kansas? I wonder how different these headlines and campaigns would be.

    With McDonald’s coming aboard with Baristas , Starbucks is getting competition that suits the ordinary mans pocket.
