For Obama, golf is a nice walk spoiled.

It's apparent how much TheOne doesn't like golf. from the reddogreport.com

He doesn’t really like golf all that much. He’d rather be sitting in the park, people watching or “rolling out of bed” on Saturday mornings to go squeeze fruit in the local market, unshaven, with his daughters.

All he wants to do is go for a walk but he’s too famous now, so he’s settling for a weekly round of golf.

Although, regardless of whether he’d be walking in the park or walking the course (which he doesn’t do, he uses a golf cart) he would still be surrounded by secret service agents. So call me stupid, but I’m missing the point.

All he wants is to be anonymous again. Ha! Well I’ve got a news flash for him and for his wife who told Mrs. Sarkozy that being first lady was “hell”: You ain’t never gonna be unknown again! You wanted this job? You wanted the perks? You wanted the weekly celebraty entertainment parties? It’s all yours now, pal, that and the loss of your privacy.

Atlas Shrugged the movie out on Friday night

Showing in select theaters on April 15th. Take note of the shadow that Atlas casts.

Atlas Shrugged Part 1 will be showing in several theaters in Las Vegas on Friday. I’m working out a way that I can make it over there to see it. It’s only being shown in limited cities because it’s being funded and distributed privately. Of course, Hollywood would never back a movie like this.

Listening to Levin tonight, Hannity and Bob Beckel were on discussing the movie. Even the liberal Bob, said it was a really good movie. (Bob’s brother Graham, a conservative, has a role in the movie.)

If you’ve read much of my blog, you probably know that this is my all time favorite novel and I’ve been really anxious to see the movie.

If you’re interested in seeing this movie, go to this site and request that it be shown in a theater near you.

Nevada Cancer Institute lays off half its staff

150 more people in Las Vegas are now out of work at the center I go to twice a year.

Thankfully, my doctor is still employed and is in fact, now acting head.

NVCI has seen its financial situation deteriorate recently as the unprecedented economic decline and continuing changes in the health care industry strain revenue. The restructuring will help the institute bring costs more in line with revenue.  It also will reduce the institute’s reliance on large one-time gifts enjoyed during its start-up years – instead relying on a more sustainable level of philanthropy.

“This is a very different world than it was seven years ago,” said Heather Murren [co-founder of the Institute.] “With the economic environment that we’re in, with federal grant monies declining, and with economic growth being so stagnant, philanthropy has been affected. Pretty much our entire landscape has changed.”

Bottom line: donations are drying up.
