Monday Buffet – Obama and television

The biggest news of the day, as far as I’m concerned is that Obama’s golf outing with Tiger raked up what it will cost to furlough 341 people. And this guy cares about the American people?

Oh, gimme a break. What a slap in the face of every American worker, and especially those who voted for him.

This is not good PR and I’m wondering how long it will be before we hear about Obama and golf again. On the other hand, this president doesn’t seem to care about the optics of anything he does. For the Obamas it’s all about the perks.


Did anyone else watch The Bible on the History Channel last night? It was definitely worth the 2 hours that I spent on it. It will be replayed again this week, if you missed it and want to catch it.

The Vikings followed it and it was another excellent program. This will be a series. Well done and very authentic.

I’ve got to wait another 10 months or so for multiple Emmy and Golden Globe winner Downton Abbey! Oh the misery! Next year Miss O’Brien (Siobhan Finneran) will be gone – darn it and Shirley MacLaine will be back – double darn it. I thought she overplayed her part this year but who wouldn’t, competing with Maggie Smith for a scene. Dame Maggie comes on the set and she owns it. She is marvelous!

Like millions of others, I love Downton and can’t wait for the next season.
