This week, the Hemingways chat about which political party run better cities, debate the case for and against military action against Syria, reminisce about their trip back to Mark’s boyhood home (shout-out to the surf band Don & The Quixotes), explain the finer points of the ancient art of record collecting, the movie “Mud”, and of course “The Fight Of The Week”®.

    Jeff Nichol’s earlier movie Take Shelter is also quite good.

    I also find ‘boots on the ground’ irksome. Can’t quite put my finger on why, and I don’t think Mollie could either. As for the Fight of the Week, I’m with Mark. Sorry, Mollie.

    Totally agree about boots on the ground. But also because people who have never had boots on use it to convey the “common sense, in the loop, got a grip on this thing” manque. Pretentious, I guess.

    Mayor Nagin/Mayor Giuliani.

    I will have more detailed -which is to say substantive -comments on things like Boots on the Ground and Democratic Mayors later.

    But I just have to say that “Surrender” is a great song.  I have no idea whether Cheap Trick is any good -but that song is awesome.

    Democrat mayors are more common.

    Definitely better liked….

    Why locate cemeteries on hilltops?

    Possibly the settlers didn’t want to render prime agricultural land unusable by cluttering it up with corpses.

    Mark flying a kite in an orchard… that’s amazing.

    Went down to Portland today after listening, this morning, to the podcast.Sorry Molly, but Mark is right. This town is a great place to just ramble around in. Especially in the Pearl.

    Democratic Mayors? Really?

    Also, Mud is a great movie.  I watched it earlier this summer here in Indy.

    Democratic mayors?! New York City is coming off of 19 years of leadership by a Republican followed by a liberal Republican turned independent. It happens to be one of the most prosperous and least chaotic periods in the city’s whole history.

    Now the adult supervision is leaving office and its a stampede to the left among the limousine liberals vying to take the job.

    So watch what happens to NYC in the years to come. Hopefully, it won’t be as sad and violent as Cory Booker’s Newark.

    Molly – I know just what you mean when you say that fight would have been worse earlier in your marriage.  I was much more Type-A early in our marriage.  But my phlegmatic husband doesn’t get worked up over *anything*  —  so it was either loosen up, or spend my life on the verge of blowing a fuse.  

    So he pretty much broke my spirit early, and now refers to himself as The Wife Whisperer.
