The Last of the Mohicans

I made it back to L.A. just in time for a very boring Academy Awards presentation — I hope next time they pick Stephen Colbert as a host. And, the King's Speech? Huh? A movie about a stuttering monarch? Why not a movie about Prince Charles getting his ears done?

About the Tea Party; there is one very interesting thing: Judging from talks, and looking at badges it seems to be a movement that is, at least, 75 percent German-American, if not 90 percent. And it sure feels like visiting my relatives when I was a kid, especially the part when my grandfather warned me about brown-skinned Gipsies coming into Germany to commit crimes. Other than that, those folks don't have a lot in common with the speakers who were mainly Washington insiders pretending to be farmboys.

Not all people where white; though, I met a Native American who joined the Tea Party because he is against too much immigration. Well, better late than never.
