I wound up on lil Marco Rubio's mailing list, likely because I feel the need to contact him regularly to remind him he is accountable to all Floridians, not just the ones that contribute heavily to him.  

Anyway, while most of his mail is drivel, this particular info struck me:

Democrats have a 225,115 person advantage at the start of a Presidential year. 

 Number of Democrats in Florida: 4,986,520 

 Number of Republicans in Florida: 4,761,405 

Here's why it matters:
Floridians' pick for president has won 18 out of the last 20 elections.
* The Sunshine State is a perpetual target of campaigns because of our 29 electoral votes.
* Democrats have won the electoral votes nearly half the time since 1936.

Of course, he's right.  And that means if you want to help get trump out of office, you need to GET OUT AND VOTE. 

Verify your registration, and start thinking about your plans for November.

Sometimes the simplest explanations are best. This is s a cool experiment that applies some simple principles to achieve a result.

We seem to be at a point where some likely believe this is true.

Game was okay. Certainly not as crappy as last year. Halftime was ... interesting. But relatively dull (in spite of Shakiras hips).

In any case, here’s my take on the top 10 commercials in the big game.

#10 Jimmy Fallon (Michelob ultra)

#9. Mars water (soda stream)

#8. Avocados

#7. Bud light seltzer With post Malone.

#6 Reese’s take 5

#5 Alexa with Ellen and Portia

#4 John/Chrissy party (Genesis)

#3 Groundhog Day (Jeep)

#2 Pahked it. (Hyundai)

#1 Can’t touch this. (Cheetos)

Honorable mention to P&G together ad

And the Wisconsin vet school, which has a cool story, needs a mention:

And in case you wondered. The trump ads were garbage. 

Super Bowl commercials

Friday, Brady tweeted this an sports media went crazy. What could it mean?!

Then we see his Hulu as ... and it was just a troll job. Hilarious.

Nice troll job.

We watch too much tv. We put people in a pedestal. We laud our athletes. And it causes the ridiculous hysteria.

Kobe died. It's sad. Made sadder by him being with his daughter. Okay. I don't know anything about Kobe, other than he played basketball and I saw him as a ball hog. Didn't much care for him personally.

And of course there was the rape allegations. And the affair. But that's it. People say he was "great" in ways. I wouldn't know. I know nothing else about him.

And maybe he did some of the good things they say about him. I wouldn't know, and not to be callous, but I don't care, either.

Every single day, good people die. Some do more than we will ever know. Some of them are public about it, and never get credit.

But here's Kobe now on his 4th day(!) of coverage. It's just too much.

But this is what happens with our reality tv nation. Somehow "we" think we know the guy, and mourn him.

He's another human whose life ended too soon. That's sad, sure, but why does he get wall-to-wall coverage?

And weirder still is the fact that in every huge news story, there are ALWAYS detractors. People who offer (an often ludicrous) differing point of view.

Where are they this time? Why does this story only talk about him in glowing terms?

Is this what we're doing now?

I find this all vexing and frustrating. Isn't there anything else we can talk about?

We got a problem...
