Last night, there was a fundraiser for Saving Abandoned Babies. I couldn’t go, but made a donation.

Brian Lund’s week in review.

The Navy Seals are training Olympic athletes. Guess who is tiring out? Nebraska Global makes an amazing camera for a weight room. The Seals use it. They are so intense they are breaking recording devices.

Wisconsin resorts to skullduggery in the recall vote. In Illinois, every Republican is automatically down 10 points in elections because of dirty politics.

We have plenty of oil and energy in the US. We just aren’t allowed to use it.

            Where to start?  Heh.  American Sector for lunch.  Cochon is great, as is Herbsaint.  Dookey Chase’s is wonderful gumbo and fried chicken.  Lunch at Commander’s Palace M-F has .25 cent martinis!  Emeril’s was top notch.  Julia’s is supposed to be great.  Just depends on your budget.

            Gumbo and fried chicken sounds like a good start. Great seafood and Cajun cooking is what I’m after. Budget is not a big concern,but I’ve found some of the best food comes from some of the out of the way places.
            Saw your post on your daughters college and trying to get a conservative speaker. Was this UNC? If so I understand your frustration. My oldest son graduated from UNC and loved it. He assures me that there are a lot of conservative on campus but the libs and their agenda get the ink. Sound familure?
