Morning Blog New Update: Monday Edition

Let's do a quick look on what we are up against today.

Weather
Got my cooler weather I was wishing for yesterday. A front blew through last night (did it ever) and now it will be in the 50's today. Now, I wish for a billion gagillion dollars.

Football news
Nix is a candidate. Saints blow another one. And the cowbell is now the Liberty Bell. Here is the complete bowl list and here are NFL scores. Links aplenty.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez was handed a defeat yesterday in his bid to change the constitution to abolish term limits (and make him a dictator). The vote was 51-49. Hate that for you, big guy.

Top three movies
Enchanted ($17 mil), This Christmas ($8.4 mil) and Beowolf ($7.8 mil). Check out boxofficemojo.com for the complete list. Evil Knievel is still dead.

MARL (Mississippi Animal Rescue League) needs a major gift from Santa
MARL (it's a good thing they aren't the Southern National Animal Rescue League -- SNARL) needs another $250,000 on top of their current $550,000 budget to cover expenses. They do good work and if you have a couple quarters lying around, it's a good cause.

Wanna see promo pictures from the next Batman movie?
From The Dark Knight: Batman and the Joker.

Media
Imus is back today. An Los Angeles Times column calls CNN the Corrupt News Network because of the ethical lapses from the last debate.

Russia keeps Putin
Sorry, I couldn't resist. Putin wins in a landslide. A election violations are feared.

Would you wish for me some money too?!? =) I can't get over how fast our weather can change. It was dang near hot yesterday and I've got my space heater toasting my toes now!

Cool picks of the new Joker in Batman! I really like Christian Bale as Batman - the last movie was really good.

According to the news last night, the high yesterday was 81 and when I walked the dog this morning, the temperature was 40 and the wind was blowing. Brrrrrrrrr! I've always heard that if you don't like the weather in Mississippi, stick around. It will change again in the next few days. I have always found that to be true.

Heath Ledger was the Joker should be interesting.

Now Venezuela needs to ride Chavez out of the country on a rail. But wait, let's make sure they don't send him here and offer him health insurance and social security and other perks. Maybe they could send him to Putin.

as the Joker, not was the Joker.

The CNN story is scathing. Wow. I missed the debates and hadn't heard about it. Interesting. And, frankly, scary. It is hard enough to get a sense of the candidates anyway without the wasted opportunity of this debate. Guess I won't waste my time finding and watching it. Thanks for the link.

I watched a few minutes of that particular debate because I feel like I have to -- but it was pretty bad. I love YouTube, but that was silly. And now finding out it was fixed makes me sick.

You wonder if they think we are all really that stupid.
