I used to have a dream. That dream was to see Paul McCartney in concert someday. Now I couldn’t care less about that dream and I’m embarrassed that I ever had that dream! The Beatles had some great songs and I still like listening to them, but I am fed up with Paul McCartney.

First there was his comment about George Bush not knowing what a library was at a concert honoring him that took place at the Library of Congress. I don’t mind him having his opinions or thinking that Bush is stupid, but that was just the wrong place and time for something like that. You would think someone with that much experience as a performer would have a little more class.

Then, more recently, McCartney compares global warming skeptics to holocaust deniers. No, Paul McCartney, there is no comparison. He even claims that it could sometimes take something like an oil spill to get people to believe in global warming. It’s the same thing Obama did. The two are entirely unrelated. Yes, an oil spill is a very bad thing and yes, it does show the need for alternative energy sources, but an oil spill does not prove global warming. It proves that bad things happen when oil spills into the water like we’re seeing now in the Gulf of Mexico! If you’re going to basically call me an idiot for not believing in global warming at least back up your view with something a little more intelligent than, “Look! There’s oil in the water!”

Rue McLanahn passed away recently. As a tribute, and a big fan of the Golden Girls, I wanted to share some of my favorite Golden Girl quotes.

Blanche: I think you owe me an explanation.

Dorothy:Well, Ted and I-

Blanche:I don’t need to stand here and listen to this!

——

hair stylist:Who’s hair do I wash first?

Blanche:Mine. I’m first. I’m the dirtiest.

——

Blanche:Now honestly, do you think I’m competent at what I do?

Rose:Based on the sounds from your bedrooms I’d bet your damn near spectacular!

——

Blanche:And there were thirteen little girls up there…and then the curtain opened and the music started and twelve little girls started to dance. And one little girl wet her pants. That girl in the puddle was me.

——

Blanche:Terrific little figure, gorgeous hair, perfect skin. Just like looking in a mirror!

Sophia:Get some windex!

——

Rose:I don’t believe it.

Blanche:Neither do I. Landing herself a doctor and she still wants to finish college!

I think this show is hilarious and I love watching it. It also has a lot of touching moments, like the episode where Blanche dreams that her husband came back. That was a beautiful episode. Anyone else have some favorite Golden Girls moments or quotes?
