Journalist Mike Wallace died this weekend at the age of 93. I actually briefly – very briefly – bumped into him in Italy while he was waiting for General Allen to return from Bosnia (I hadn’t been there yet). I was hanging around in the concourse when he asked me if I felt like talking to him, and I told him that I didn’t want to ruin his interesting questions with my mediocre answers. He said this to me:
Modesty is a boring virtue.
I found it to be extremely witty and true. My father used to watch him on 60 Minutes all the time. I remember him being one of the last good journalists. God rest his soul. He made it all the way to 93, despite battling depression and boredom.
Well, as Gingrich realizes his ship is sinking, he’s made a good case for Romney winning the GOP nomination. Which – to Rick Santorum‘s dismay – means this primary is almost over. It’s the slow death now – even I agree with the head of the DNC Debbie Schultz (and I mostly hate that woman) that the GOP’s sole focus is to wreck the economy and piss off the voters. I doubt the GOP and the Tea Party have much of a future now.
For all those Sony PS3 fans who spammed me forever ago when I posted in their fanatical site about how shitty Sony has become – VINDICATION. There’s also rumors how the company did this in preparation for claiming bankruptcy. Which would kill any further Playstation projects. XBox and Wii for the win.
