Random Thoughts

  • Detroit beat Indiana tonight to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Heat is going to have a very difficult time matching up with Ben Wallace and Rasheed Wallace inside. I hope the Heat can get some production from Damon Jones and Keyon Dooling, thus forcing Detroit to play defense on the perimeter and not be able to collapse everyone inside.
  • I read all of the news articles on Tom Gallagher's announcement for Governor this morning. I was stunned to hear such right wing rhetoric from Gallagher who has always been a moderate with a reputation as a wild man in Tallahassee. Either Gallagher has changed overnight or he is a political opportunist.
  • I'm currently reading Ron Chernow's excellent biography of Alexander Hamilton. While I consider myself more of a Jeffersonian, it is amazing how little credit contemporary political theorists give Hamilton for being one of the truly important figures in the foundation of this nation. Alexander Hamilton is more responsible than any other figure for the vision that made the United States the greatest capitalist machine in the history of the planet.
  • Congratulations to UM Basketball assistant coach Barclay Radebaugh who accepted the head coaching job at Charleston Southern.
