Yesterday, I was watching the early morning local newscast (KITV), and I really don't know how long they've been doing it, but the morning hosts intermittently interrupted their regular programming to interview national celebrities in real time from different parts around the nation much like how the national tv shows do. The interludes were quite entertaining in light that the bulk of the early morning news is usually recycling yesterday's news stories. Their first celebrity was "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, the WWF wrestling champion. Stone Cold was promoting his reality tv show, but overall came across as a likable guy, which was a reprieve from having to endure listening to the female anchor's penchant, I won't mention names, of beginning every single sentence with an introductory laugh, and ending every single sentence with a closing laugh. After a while, her gig gets irritating, and I'd be replete not to mention, some local tv reporters do it better than others. It's like the song that gets stuck in your head but on a bad note.
Later, Donald Trump, was on the same broadcast. If you haven't heard, Trump's is busy advocating that President Obama wasn't born in the US and is thereof not American enough to be president. I think he meant president of the USA not the Trump empire. I don't quite understand the political strategy behind Trump resurrecting this claim, but Trump only comes off sounding as lolo as the Birthers before him whom never got anywhere with the same gimmick. If Obama was not born in the USA, than Obama would be essentially an illegal immigrant having never going through the process of been naturalized. And this is the same Trump that wants to run for president. Why the jackass be better of running as Sarah Palin's vice-president. It all strikes me as out of character from what I've watched of Trump. For example, Trump publicly stated that the Iraqi War was a needless war which very few fellow Repubs would have even allowed to enter their thoughts. Where went the credibility?
Much to my chagrin, the 2011 national basketball championship pre-empted this week's Hawaii Five-O episode.
Yesterday also marked the official opening of the World Trade Center's twin towers almost some four decades ago.
