Point of Interest #2: Horse Romance
Brad & Angelina, Scarlett & Rhett, Rachel & Ross... everyone loves a supercouple. Here in the Thoroughbred Capital of the World, we have our own version of the supercouple happening - Rachel Alexandra (2009 Horse of the Year) and Curlin (2007 & 2008 Horse of the Year). These two champion racehorses have produced a foal! This foal will either be the biggest thing to happen to racing since Secretariat, or be the biggest disappointment since Crystal Pepsi. Whatever the outcome... it will be interesting to watch.

Point of Interest #3: Clusterf**kery
If I am ever on "Inside the Actor's Studio" and James Lipton asks me for my favorite curseword, I am going to say "clusterf**k". I mention that not so that you can learn more about me and cursing... but so I can say that I believe that is the perfect word to describe our political climate right now. We don't talk about politics on this blog, and I'm gonna guess that's one of the reasons you probably like this blog. But it is HARD to ignore the massive clusterf**kery going on right now with the Republican primary and D.C. in general. The older I get, the less I care about politics... but wow. Get it together.
When I watch the news lately... any news... I find myself doing a version of the "Really!?! with Seth and Amy" skit from SNL Weekend Update. Really, guys? Really?!? Let me just say... it is a sad, sad reality when a talking point is whether or not you believe in evolution, aka, SCIENCE.
The current Republican primary reminds me of the last season of "The West Wing" when Jimmy Smits and that guy from M.A.S.H competed for the Democratic nomination. That ended well... of course. Because it's "The West Wing" and that show rocked. I have a feeling the Republican Convention won't end with camaraderie and confetti and a speech penned by Aaron Sorkin... but I bet it will involve more of the "c" word!!
Also... if Martin Sheen ran for President, I'd totally vote for him. Sheen/Winfrey 2016. Who's with me?
