I watch MSNBC occasionally for the same reason I watch or read anything: I want to know what people think, sometimes especially those folks with whom I disagree. And Lord knows that I often disagree with, and have been critical of, the MSNBC folks in the past.
In my defense, when your channel features such luminaries as Melissa Harris-Perry, Ed Shultz, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews and Al Sharpton every day, merely being “critical” should be viewed as remarkable self-restraint.

Let’s get one thing straight here first: I am NOT a Chris Christie fan.
That said, I’ve got nothing against the guy personally. Yeah, I know: he’s a RINO. But c’mon, he’s in New Jersey; of course he’s a RINO. You don’t see Evangelical Christian Teaparty Reagan Conservatives getting elected to run deep blue states, any more than you have Commie Socialist Liberals getting elected to run deep red ones.
Still, the entire Bridgegate controversy has received more media attention than almost anything that’s happened in the Obama Administration, with the possible exception of the Associated Press phone records scandal, and THAT was only because it affected the Press itself.

***Today’s guest post is from our old buddy, ‘Pgh‘. And if you’d like to see any of his previous writings, they’re all collected right here.
One topic commonly discussed here at “Two Heads…” is our nation’s culture or, perhaps more specifically, the deterioration of our culture.
Recently, I came across an article by Reverend Billy Graham, titled “My Heart Aches for America“. In it, he recalls a conversation he had with his wife, Ruth:
“…Some years ago, my wife, Ruth, was reading the draft of a book I was writing. When she finished a section describing the terrible downward spiral of our nation’s moral standards and the idolatry of worshiping false gods such as technology and sex, she startled me by exclaiming, “If God doesn’t punish America, He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”
In honor of Father’s Day, ….both “Heads” are taking the day off.
Hope you enjoy the collection we put together last year (…admittedly, the ‘Star Wars’ one is still my favorite).
Have a great day, gang….

It’s not that I’m against change, but I don’t like changing stuff just for the sake of changing it.
And it’s official: the Miami Dolphins have changed their logo, which for my money was one of the most enduring, and endearing, left in sports today. They went from this:
