Good Night, and Good Luck

We watched "Good Night, and Good Luck" last night. It's the story of Ed Murrow taking on and helping to bring down Joe McCarthy. It's a really good movie, mostly because it's so incredibly relevant to events that are taking place right now. It's almost frightening to watch a movie about Joe McCarthy accusing newsmen of being communists and then read an article the next morning about Republicans (including the President of the United States) attacking the NYTimes for being on the side of terrorists because they published an article about a secret program of questionable legality intended to monitor "terrorists". They are even suggesting the the NYT editors should be prosecuted. Scary. Really scary.

Anyway, I highly recommend the movie.

Back to work!


The kids had a great time with their friends at the beach.

Me? I think I need a vacation.

To the beach!

We're leaving later this morning to go to Emerald Isle for a week. Yee haw!

And I need it. I've been working my tuckus off the last couple weeks on an urgent project -- nights and weekends included. A week lounging on the beach is just what I need.

And the kids'll be in heaven. First, the house is right on the beach AND it has a pool -- their two favorite activities. Second, they both have friends coming. Tyler has two friends, Miles and Brandon, who are going with us today. Brandon is staying the whole week and Miles is staying till Tuesday. And then Carson has Morgan coming up with her family later tonight, though it's still unclear to me whether Morgan will be there the whole week or not.

Should be a lot of fun. And completely unrelated to work.

Carson's dance recital

Carson and her best friend Morgan at their dance recital. We also have video, but haven't been able to figure out how to upload it to the blog yet. As always, click the pictures for the full-size image.
