Is it just me, or do they not make good films anymore?
The last one I saw was that Helen Mirren one in which she played the Queen. Won Best Actress. Marvelous! And I'm Irish.
But "Hot Fuzz" and "Disturbia?"
Sign of the times.
This couple in the State Street shot actually are touristas from Minnesota.
We had a nice chat about the "Land of the Golden Gophers."
Speaking of location, location, location, I was wrong in the post below in suggesting Barack Obama, like Hillary Clinton, "grew up" in the Chicago area. Thank you, Lisa Crean.
Here's this off Obama's U.S. Senate official website:
Obama and his wife, Michelle, married in 1992 and live on Chicago ’s South Side where they attend Trinity United Church of Christ.
Barack Obama was born on August 4th, 1961, in Hawaii to Barack Obama, Sr. and Ann Dunham. Obama graduated from Columbia University in 1983, and moved to Chicago in 1985 to work for a church-based group seeking to improve living conditions in poor neighborhoods plagued with crime and high unemployment. In 1991, Obama graduated from Harvard Law School where he was the first African American president of the Harvard Law Review.
No wonder I never get a Chicago "feel" off the dude.
