the legacy thing

"This is the end of President Bush's legacy. He's done. He's through... You know, I like President Bush personally, I think he's done some good things in the war on terror. But he will now go down in history alongside Jimmy Carter as an ineffectual leader, particularly in the last four years, with Iraq and now the economy imploding. And I'll tell you the reason why: it's poor leadership on his part and the people that he picked to run certain things have been disastrous. And no leadership and now Americans are getting hurt."
-Bill O'Reilly, Sept, '08

Netflixin': In Bruges

We went looking for a comedy, we got a comedy/drama. But that's fine, because In Bruges was a quality mix of the two. I wasn't aware that Colin Farrell could act, but he did a bang-up job. And oh, I'm a sucker for Brendan Gleeson. Add a couple more notable guest stars to the mix, and you've got a good cast to work with. Add in some clever comedic hijinx, clever plotting, and subtle character development, and you've got yourself a quality production. Check it out.
