Snort Notes – March 2010

Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) holds up passage of a bill that would extend unemployment benefits for thousands of Americans. Result: economic disaster for families of unemployed workers, government workers are furloughed, Medicare payments to doctors are cut, and people in rural America will not be able to receive their local television stations via their satellite dish.

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? Only Jim Bunning knows!

The Academy Awards this weekend will consider 10 films in the Best Picture category. This is not a new wrinkle. Ten films were always nominated for Best Picture in the early years of the Oscar ceremonies. What is different between then and now is that now the awards ceremony is broadcast coast-to-coast. Just think of it: for the first time people on the east coast will be able to watch the Best Picture prize announced and the sunrise at the same time!

I will not offer any predictions for this year for several reasons. One, I didn’t see any of the films nominated, and two, using Little Miss Sunshine as a punch line has run its course. There is an interesting competition between the two films considered as front runners for the big prize: box office champion Avatar and The Hurt Locker.

Avatar producer/director James Cameron was once married to Kathryn Bigelow, producer/director of The Hurt Locker. I suspect there will be a split: Bigelow will be named Best Director, while Avatar will get Best Picture and all the technical awards. In the case of a tie between the two films and the directors, we may see a knockdown dragged-out fist fight on the awards stage.

Now THAT would be worth staying up to see the sunrise!

Jim Bunning strikes again!

Grapefruit League for the Phillies begins today when they play the New York Yankees

Today, the Phillies will hopefully teach the Yankees that they can’t win all of their games. Not only that, but they’ll do it without help from Jim Bunning!

Blizzards strike the continent of Europe causing widespread damage and death

This could only be the work of...Jim Bunning!!!!!

(Thank you for reading...unless of course your name is Jim Bunning. In that case, we don’t care what you do.)
