Soulful Strut

Pretty bold title, heh, considering we tanked posting this weekend.

It was a bit busy, here on the Homefront, but it had to do with something else;

Today is our birthday!

So, we decided not to sit at the computer, very much, and indulge in some minor celebration (Thanks, Sisters!), as greetings dribbled in from family and friends.

In that light, we're going to point you to some other voices, on one of the weeks' top (remarkably), stories.

The ridiculous, collectively, panties-getting-in-a-knot reaction to the Obama -Faux News War.

We only touched on it briefly, the other night, with the ignoramus Jake Tapper, but there were truckloads and barges of pixels burned out on this story.

However, there were three that stood out, above the crowd.

Barry Crimmins had people jumping up, and waving at him to weigh in, so Barry, in his best-satirist-in-the-country-mode said "Okay, you want to hear what I have to say ... " with "Look! A shiny balloon!"

Joe Conason, on Salon, steps in to trace the foundation of Faux News lies to the corpulent mouth-breather Roger Ailes, in his "Criticizing Fox News isn't "Nixonian." But Fox News is"

And, Dan Froomkin, over on his new fortress, HuffPo, slaps the mainstream corporate media upside-the-head with a "WTF!" in his "Why Journalists Shouldn't Be Defending Fox News"

For that matter, Frank Rich was pretty much on-the-money today, as well.

As to our title tonight, since it's our B'Day, we wanted to have some music to pump things up, so we turned, as we did earlier this week, to Young Holt Unlimited for that;

Young Holt Unlimited - Soulful Strut

(Astute music fans will know that this was culled from Barbara Acklin's "Am I The Same Girl")
