Chargers, Saints 2 thumbs up

LT, again, had a great game.

LT TDRecord

LT was impressive again this weekend when he broke Alexanders TD record. The guy is one of the best players I have seen. He should practice kicking in the off season and kick a few extra points or field goals.... imagine if Rivers holds and LT kicks... scary...

The Saints showed that its not a fluke that they have the number one rated offense. They owned the Cowboys this weekend. Tony Romo is still a very young QB and I think they made him throw too much too early. The running game should have been the staple early in the game, even though things eventually got out of hand and they had no choice but to chuck the rock. ON a side note... TO has been very subdued, but so has the likes of Tory Holt and even Steve Smith has been silent the last few weeks. Seems that with a few exceptions, DEF have ruled this year in the NFL.

Lawmakers urge Bush to commute sentences

If you haven’t been caught up on the situation with Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, then look here.

“WASHINGTON – Rep. Dana Rohrabacher joined 48 other Republican lawmakers Thursday in sending a letter to President Bush urging him to commute the sentences of two border patrol agents convicted of shooting a Mexican drug smuggler at the border.
Border patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean are scheduled to go to prison next month. Ramos was sentenced to 11 years and Compean to 12 years. The two border patrol agents were convicted of shooting an admitted drug smuggler in the buttocks as he ran away from them near the Rio Grande river in February 2005.”

The situation on the southern border is getting worse and the new congress is most likely going to make it critical. Both the northern and southern borders subject this country to a variety of terrorist threats, but the southern border is crippling the “border states’” ability to offer services to its legal residence.
 
It’s an outrage that our border agents will most likely go to jail for shooting a drug smuggler. It’s an outrage that congress will most likely pardon millions of people (and reward them!) for breaking federal law.

About Casino Royal...

I saw the movie and wanted to digest it for a few weeks before I jumped in with my thoughts. The movie "itself" was pretty good.  A fair amount of action (could have used more) and Daniel Craig was a pretty good action figure.  The movie ran too long for its content and the "extended" romance scenes at the end of the movie could have been dramatically reduced (WAY too long).  All in all it gets about a B on the Irritated Scale.

Craig Bond 007

Now for the bad... 

(DISCLAIMER:  I am not a "fan boy" when it comes to my movies. I enjoy re-inventing, re-invisioning, re-booting, and any other phrase which is normally attached to remake/sequels that change fundamental events or characters from the earlier versions. One such example of this is the New Battlestar Galactica series which i think is just fantastic.)

The movie is NOT a James Bond movie.  The movie is NOTHING AT ALL like the book.  The only similarities between this movie and any other James Bond film or book is the names of the characters. From the perspective of the book, the plot, character traits, setting, and well everything accept character names has been changed.  This movie is not a James Bond movie.

I would have been happy with this movie if they just made character name changes and called it something else, even if they kept the James Bond spin and had named the movie ANYTHING else I would have been modestly happy.  IMHO it was a huge mistake to call this movie Casino Royal when it had nothing to do with the book.
