Quick Note: White Roofs

I have yet to hear anybody speculate on my theory that suggesting that people paint their roofs white has anything to do with Google Earth. At worst, it would allow the government to mark those fanatically convinced of the GW Hoax that they would take such a silly measure. At best, I see Obama's folks on a slow day going on Google Earth and snickering at all the suckers they were able to dupe into doing it.

Also, while I follow the theory that reflecting the heat will reduce running AC, I have not heard about the effect of heating in the winter. Would this not require more fossil fuel usage to heat homes in Winter further driving up the cost of energy and throwing more CO2 in the atmosphere?

PT Barnum would be proud.

American Idol Finale - 2009

Tuesday night we will more than certainly see great performances by the the finalists Adam Lambert and Kris Allen. Most know by now that Adam Lambert is gay. I for one could care less. Issues of morality do not interest me when it comes to entertainment. We have had a number of gay contestants on American Idol and none of them have had the talent it takes to win. Adam does. If Adam does win it, he will be deserving of the recognition of his singing and performance talents.

I will say that in the past few weeks, I have not been as impressed by Adam as in weeks before. His high, piercing notes (as his tongue flies out) was pretty impressive the first few times but has been overused. Adam had such strong performances in the first half of the season I think it was hard to top. Kris on the other hand has been growing each week in his performances. I for one was quite irritated with some of his early output. I was even more irritated that the judges and my wife did not share my opinion. About two weeks ago, though, I began to see strong promise and actually began pulling for him. I really did not care who would be the top two as the top three were fantastic.

In summary, I am neutral on the gay issue. I will not share the world's shock, however, if Kris pulls off an upset. Adam has been static or sinking for several weeks, while Kris' star has been rising. I just hope we don't have to hear a bunch of claims of homophobia if Kris does win.

Quick Note: Jon Huntsman a Setup?

I have not had time for long drawn out write-ups, so I am introducing the Quick Note to point out some quick observations.

I am noticing that Obama has tapped GOP Jon Huntsman to be Ambassador to China. When I read this, it jumped out immediately that this is a setup to make a Republican the fall guy for when relations with China go south. With China being the biggest underwriter of our debt and being on record they are wary of absorbing more; the huge Porkulus Stimulus package and insane budget deficit will be a recipe for disaster when it comes to China. I expect a resignation before 2012.
