Happy Mother's day weekend and other ruminations

Happy Mother's Day weekend to all.
The tulips are in bloom in the capital city.
The legislature is out of town.
The great city of Saratoga is booming.
Hopefully the sun will shine on all of us later today.
I caught PBS's "Need to Know" premier last night. It replaces NOW and Bill Moyers Journal.
I liked it.
Co-hosts Alison Stewart and Jon Meacham did a good job.
I'd give it a B+. 4 of 5 stars.
They seem to have some money for this series; and the producers traveled to different locations.
It is sorta of a more hip 60 minutes.
The segments on Gulf oil exporation;gun advocates; and the 50th anniversary of the Pill were well done.
The interviews with Mayor Bloomberg and Pres. Clinton added a nice touch.
They even have humorist Andy Borowitz giving a preview of next week's news. His online report is generally funny; and he repeated many of the themes he has originally used.
Humor has a big appetite.
Borowitz is a hip Andy Rooney.
As they say, Rooney is 150 yrs. old; and he keeps talking about his desk stapler.
Kudos to all for a good start.
