I was wondering how the only Walking the Dog I know was going to sound on a Uke. That could be interesting.

This is a long post but summarizes most of my current observations on the Zimmerman trial.

Writing a lot of words does not mean your thesis is necessarily complex. It just means you wrote a lot of words. Here, watch:

"I think Zimmerman is not guilty of second degree murder."

Was that too hard to put in print?

Very nice write-up about Johanna's Filmless Festival in today's Robert Feder column. http://bit.ly/rgrefs
Dozens of the best radio documentaries from around the world will be spotlighted by Chicago’s Third Coast Festival this weekend.

Click survey? Will Occupy fizzle in the winter, hibernate or keep getting stronger?

No single strong leader (fizzle), but economic problems are real and the "movement" is a sure focal point for action. I vote it will grow, and a spokesperson (-model!) will eventually emerge.

A listing of some fo the best stuff I found prowling around the web last week, including "Man Ups," a series of photos of men striking poses that, in women, seem to strike us as sexy. The men look ridiculous, of course.

Or, perhaps "Lawndependence Day" -- time to give up on the weeding, seeding, watering and other fussing. Nature wants grass to go dormant in later summer and who are we to argue?

You're one of my inspirations -- as well as one of my daily reads.  If we are ever in the same geographic area, let's play some banjo tunes.
