Never Mind

In yesterday's podcast, I called on folks to leave Michael J. Fox alone. Some people are criticizing him for going of his meds to dramatize his condition.

Today, Fox claims he wasn't off his meds, that the tremors and slurred speech were a normal occurrence, implying that his medications weren't always effective or reliable.

You can imagine this came as quite a shock to me since just a couple of months ago, I saw him on Inside the Actors Studio, where he gave an extended interview with nary a twitch. In fact, at one point, he halted the interview so he could go of stage and take his meds in order to complete the show with minimal palsy.

Coincidentally, that episode is being rebroadcast on Oct 30th. Check it out for yourself and see if you think Fox was really on his meds or not.

In my book, he's gone from a hero to a zero.

Political Ads

OK, due to popular demand, here is the next podcast from Shots Across the Bow. This time, I take on political ads, primarily the Michael J Fox spots and the RNC attack on Harold Ford. The ads can be seen below, if you care for that sort of thing.
Musical Credits:
Intro: Liar by Three Dog Night
Exit: Don't Slander Me by Roky Erickson

The Shots Across the Bow 2006 Voters Guide

Early voting is underway and to help you all out in deciding who to vote for, I've put together the Shots Across the Bow Voter's Guide. Here in one place I address all the major issues, showing you the differences between the parties so you can make an informed choice when you get into the booth. Sure, the News Sentinel has their version, but who do want to trust, a major conglomerate or a pajama clad blogger?

Never mind; don't answer that.

Without further ado, the voting guide.

Oops, I forgot to mention that this is my first podcast. Very low tech for now; I don't even have any bumper music. You'll just have to settle for me! Let me know what you think!

UPDATE: While it plays at a reasonable volume on my laptop, I've gotten a couple of reports that it's too quiet, so I replaced the original file with one that should be louder.
