Not the choice of the president. The secret service makes those decisions.
The best decision would have been for him to stay home after the first visit
and save a lot of resources that would be best used to assist the people in
the disaster area.
I liked Diggstown - good movie, but a horrible boxing movie.

bring something to kill"
C'mon Tom, Thats not a boxing movie at all. It's a female empowerment movie.
Look at your own example 130# woman punching a 300# heavybag? 200# man
punching a 60# bag? Ever see the show Alias? 90# freak woman can beat the
crap out of any man they throw at her but if she fights another woman it
lasts for what seems hours.. Geena Davis as president? Puhleeze....
It's all a feminist/marxist conspiracy quelling the male masses into a false
sense of inferiority. How can anyone waste time watching such drivel when
there are so many good books out there.....
Damn, Tom ... I enjoyed visiting with you on the phone, you like my favorite
music, now you confess to being a boxing fan ... a decidedly politically
incorrect endeavor these days. Wanna dance? ;)
To SWMBO"S utter disgust, much of my TV watching is catching ESPN's classic
boxing reruns of all those great fights in the last century. When I was a
kid in the early fifties I had to be dragged away from Gillette's Friday
Night Fights on that big 8" TV screen.
Notice, if you will, that most fight fans went to the fights in the 40's and
50's in a suit and tie, then switch channels and take a good look when
corporate religion's TV cameras pan the audience ... now chew on that
.... and watch Archie Moore fight Yvon Durelle for a few rounds and you can
see where Mohammed Ali got much of his style and shtick.
Well, Swing, I searched High and Low.
I found out that it was called, "The Gillette Cavalcade Of Sports",
which I had disremembered.
I found out that the theme song was called. "The Look Sharp March",
found out who wrote it and found one MP3 by Fiedler and the Band, but
it ain't the same as the whistled version, and I couldn't find that.
Damned shame. I'd like to hear it again.
I'm running about 212, and at 6'0", that's about 32 lbs. over optimal.
I'm only 55, so I've got that in my favor - but the fat knocks that
advantage down right quick.
My leg work is shabby. (I'm running the treadmill but it goes slow, ya
My wind is gone. (see supra re: treadmill.)
I'm a southpaw, and that was always good for a little confusion in the
opening rounds, if they hadn't done their homework.
(ps - that overhand right bullshit don't work on a good lefty who
stays tucked and does body combinations.)
All this comes down to the point that it would be better if, the next
time I'm down Tejas way, we hook up, view the shop, see the most
current house, and argue my theory of Marciano being the best pure
fighter (not boxer) of the 20th century.

Ya know, Swing, I have some stuff that your Dad might like.
I digitized my Dad's shipboard papers a couple of years ago.
He was with Halsey and the Seventh Fleet. He was on a Tin Can (Task
Force 38) , except when doing UDT work, which he did at Okinawa, where
he did tidal surveys and advance intelligence work.
Some of that might be interesting to your Da.
They aren't much, just the day to day reporting of what those boys
thought was going on and some of the scuttlebutt about where the Fleet
might be heading.
There are some interesting things in there, I would think, to someone
who was actually engaged.
Drop me a line at email@example.com if you want a copy and I'll
push it along.

I saw 10 minutes of it at a neighbor's house and decided tht it
was not for me.
Hey, now. Don't be dissin' Rocky. He's my main man.
Hell, I even liked all the Rambos, Demolition Man, and Judge Dredd
(Well, the last two movies were enhanced severely by the inclusion of
Ms. Lane and Ms. Bullock.)
Stallone, Schwartzenegger, Willis, Lundgren, Lee, Li, Ford, etc.
I'll watch any and all of their movies a dozen times without
hesitation. Lotsa fun. I thrive on and love action flicks.
