1– Presidential Primaries.
On the Republican side, Huckabee wins one, McCain wins one, Romney winds one. Was it a shocker that Romney did so well in Michigan? Is there a frontrunner yet? Does Thompson have to win South Carolina Saturday to remain viable? Giuliani is sticking to his plan of all or nothing in Florida. Smart move? On the Democrat side, Obama and Clinton say they’ll tone down the rhetoric. Why? Is it because neither one of them afford to alienate female voters or black voters? Is race and sex a really a big issue in this campaign? Is the economic slump the country in right now causing the war in Iraq to be less an issue of importance to voters? Should the government step in and try to rescue the economy?
2 – State Computers and Privacy.
A number of times in the past year, state agencies have sent out mailings with peoples social security numbers clearly visible on the mailing label. Why in the world do we have so many problems with this? Why doesn’t anyone get disciplined? Why does technology seem to be such a challenge for state bureaucrats? Is it simply too complex a problem for most people to comprehend?
3 – Packers vs Giants.
Who will win the NFC Championship game, the Packers or the Giants? Has the media coverage been excessive? Is it goofy to allow such an important game to be played in an open air stadium when temperatures may be below zero?
