M+M Gubernatorial Tag Team

My (unedited) interviews with Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley. The interviews took place on the eve of Barack Obama's inauguration at the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial stadium on January 19, 2009. Both governors share with me their plans for inauguration week and what they expect from the new Obama administration.

Obama The Faithful

Yesterday, CBN News got word of some new developments with the Obama Administration, and it had absolutely nothing to do with Cabinet selections that forget to pay their taxes. On Thursday morning (February 5), at the National Prayer Breakfast, President Obama will announce plans to create a "President's Council on Faith." The council will be made up of leaders from all world religions, and they will meet regularly with the president to "provide public policy input on faith related issues ranging from healthcare to poverty."

The first amendment of the US Constitution states that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. So, in my interpretation of that particular amendment, I understand that the US federal government does not have the right to impose any laws that favor one religion over another, or in any way impose a religious doctrine on the American people. So, in regard to President Obama's proposal, does his faith-based council infringe on the First Amendment?

You Can't Hide

I love how much technology has grown in the past decade. I've been proud of being part of the generation that has grown along with the internet, cell phones, social networking, video games, and just about anything else involving coding of 1's and 0's. But, it gets to a point, where I have to say that the breaks have to be put on the technology train. I think it's time for technology to stop and take a breather for a bit.

Technically, it's legal to have inappropriate feelings towards Dev Patel ... but I'm an adult, and he has just been released from adolesence.

Purple Dreams

It was probably about five years ago when it suddenly became OK again for men to wear "feminine" colors. It's always been fine in high-end editorials, but now, those colors are finally entering the mainstream.
Personally, I feel like men should wear more off-the-cuff colors. Now, I'm not talking about a full purple suit (unless of course, you are a fictional character named Chuck Bass) but there is nothing wrong with a few select details.
