Beyonce channeled her Sasha Fierce alter-ego on stage at the half-time Super Bowl show this evening as a surprise reunion of Destiny´s Child wowed the crowd in New Orleans. Launching the show with a strong performance of ´Crazy in Love´ complete with a guitar flaming as it played out its solo, Beyonce proved her doubters wrong by singing live one week after the controversy over her lip-synching at the Presidential Inauguration. In a massive surprise for the tens of millions watching at home, Beyonce was joined by Destiny´s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams who sang with the diva

Doesn´t get any better than a flaming guitar, does it?

Just a calisthenic exercise performed by some pretty girls. I didn´t notice much musical talent. Wonder if they were responsible for knocking out the power?

Ummmm....so that was spectacular? Guess it doesn´t take much anymore. I´ve seen Beyonce a couple of times and it´s always the same thing. Good grief. I guess that´s what passes for talent today. Low info indeed.

At our party the consensus is that she yells really well, dances better, but it´s to bad she didn´t try to sing. (Live?)

Take that, Mitches!
Apparently, CBS is perfectly fine with alienating an (admittedly slim) majority of this country for their own minority views.
Next thing you know, they´ll set up a series of softball interviews with Obama to further his agenda! Just like the state-run media used to do with Stalin and Hitler!
But, naw...that´s hyperbole, isn´t it? Couldn´t happen here.

Ours is probably the only house in the US not tuned in to the overhyped Super Bowl and the triply overhyped, worst kept secret ever of the Most Saintly Beyonce (sarcasm) and her half-time worship service. I think Beyonce has a good voice, but does not use it in any way that impresses me. She is an excellent caterwauler. The fact that she´s BFFs with the Poseurs in Chief makes me want to see her even less.

Skimpy black leather and lace outfits on talent-less ´´entertainers´´. Fortunately my granddaughters were not watching as my daughter and son-in-law don´t have tv. They could be watching from the internet, and I KNOW the half-time would be blocked. Are the organizers unaware of the age groups that watch? The only half-time show that was memorable for me was when my parents visited from England, and it was a Disney half-time. We all enjoyed it.

It was the worst form of exploitation to put those Sandy Hook kids out there. One of the real problems with survivors of violence is a sense of guilt that they lived, and someone else died.
It must be even more difficult for little kids than for adults. Shame on the NFL.
And I was pretty sure that Alicia Keys would never end with her over the top melisma attached to the star spangled banner. The whole pre-game and half time show, with that screeching dancer, who appeared ready to take it all off, made me a grouchy old man.

Actually, Beyonce did not appear to sing "absolutely live" as promised. I´ve spoken to people in the know who say she sang live in parts but sang along to a pre-recorded track in other parts. Therefore, it was not "absolutely live".

The comments about her performance on the social media have been largely negative.

I´m with #11. They could save a bundle on this overhyped halftime show by awarding it to a really good high school marching band (Macy´s Parade, anyone?) and instead of paying them, they make a large donation to the school which could be applied toward funding their arts program.

I saw about 10 seconds of this "show" - - and remarked to my wife - "they look like prostitutes".

It was better than the "wardrobe malfunction" and better than Madonna, but it did look like a bunch of prostitutes and wasn´t appropriate for kids to view. I know they can see way worse, but this is supposed to be family entertainment.

I thought it was pretty lame. Beyonce is a big girl, isn´t she (at least by Hollywood standards). I switched to Downton Abbey shortly afterwards and came back for the end of the game. Pretty exciting, but sorry SF couldn´t convert (not a fan, just would have found it more exciting).

Since when is an in-your-face screaming calisthenics show half-time entertainment?
And what is there about our National Anthem that causes popular artists to make singing it a stylistic romp and all about them? Ridiculous, Alicia Keyes. In contrast, I had the good fortune to attend a huge new citizen swearing in ceremony at the L.A. Convention Center a few months ago. One of the highlights of the ceremony was an amateur young lady who sang our anthem with feeling BUT sang it straight, a cappella and in-tune. It was so moving bringing thousands to tears and then cheers. That young singer got it that it was not about her.

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 5:14:55 AM     Post Reply
California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
