In my lifetime, there has been only been a handful of films that have truly captured and celebrated the beauty and magic of the cinema. Off hand, Francois Trauffaut’s “Day for Night” and Woody Allen’s “Purple Rose of Cairo.” Yesterday, I had the great honor of seeing Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo.” It not only pays homage to greaert inventors and artists of the early cinema but might be the most beautiful film I have ever seen. Thank you, Mr. Scorsese, for your diligence in preserving the films of the great cinematic artists of the past and for making some of the greatest films and works of art in cinematic history.

A note about the late boxing champ, Joe Frazier…For those who don’t think we have made strives toward racial harmony let me speak as someone who grew up during the Frazier/Ali era. In short, we have made major strives and in no small part Joe Frazier contributed mightily toward that goal. He represented a hard working black man in a country deeply divided. Our thanks go out to you, Champ.
Thank you Mr. Lincoln. You saved the union and now we live in the most perfect country in the world.

I know you probably want to take me to task for asking you to vote on DANCING WITH THE STARS. I admit that I was suckered in by my wife, but I keep watching because of J.R. Martinez.
Martinez is a vet who was burned over 40% of his body and had massive facial injuries. Yet, there he is, dancing for all to see. Not only does he portray the confidence of Cary Grant, but the man is doing his best Astaire.
Log on to abc.com and vote for Martinez. He gave a lot. Give him a minute of your time.

P.S. I would like to thank the Republicans for giving me so many concrete reasons not to vote for any of you. Presidents Reagan, Teddy Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and Lincoln would be appalled by your actions. Way to go!!!!
