What a bunch of idiots. I can't believe this. Disgraceful. Any Irish farmer could teach these trigger happy Keystone Cops how to deal with this situation. Why are there so many clowns in the world. Incredible ! Trigger happy Americans. What a bunch of stupid, ignorant idiots making this poor animal suffer the way they did with multiple shots. I would like to take each one out and give him the same treatment. They should be prosecuted.
I must say that I thought this speech elequent, forceful and sincere. This person has a force all his own and it looks like he will do good. I was particularly impressed by his comments on past accumulations and respect for wealth. A nice change.
I know nothing about this man nor am I passing judgement. I just remember when Sean T. O'Kelly was President they used to call him the Leprauchan in the park. This man looks much like the same thing without the whiskey nose.
This is true Sinatra and one of my favorites. This is also a repost of better quality. It is easy to be dismissive of him given the fact that he was really a singer of popular american standards, this is what he was but he set the standard by which every other singer is judged. He makes everything look so easy . The only other singer I can think of who comes close is Ella Fitzgerald who sounds like she ate breakfast with a tuning fork so perfect is she. Sinatra truly makes this song his own by giving true feeling and nuance to every phrase. Even his gestures add to the poetry. Listen to what he does with ' you conquered me' and how he ends on what I think is a minor note. It all adds up to artistry. The man was a musical genius. I could go on and on but I'll shut up now.
A couple of salmon caught by my friend Daniel in Gold Beach Oregon. The one on the right which is the same as the one Daniel is holding in the bottom photo weighed 33 pounds and the other one weighed 25 pounds.
