Come on in. Welcome back, how are you? How's your weekend going? Little Buddha and I have been chasing BDH around Clutter Headquarters all day trying to get him to calm about for next week's big game. The little guy finally wore himself out, so he and Little Buddha are taking a nap. I hope you don't mind it's just me here today, but at least I have fresh coffee! Help yourself to a medium DD (or a Sam Adams Spring Ale, if you prefer), and let's check out a little Sunday Clutter.
The late former mayor Kevin White is being fondly remembered throughout Boston after his death on Friday.

The anticipation is building as the New England Patriots were sent off to Indianapolis for the Super Bowl by 25,000 fans.

Mitt Romney is pulling away in Florida just two days before the state's primary. Does Newt Gingrich have another comeback in him, or is this the beginning of the end for him? Hopefully he can figure out a way back, besides the endorsement of Herman Cain. I think the public really needs another 50-100 GOP debates to have a real sense of the candidates.
Mittens is really trying to sweep the leg with this ad. Simple and to the point:
I was just thinking about something. Mitt Romney has touted Domino's Pizza, which Bain Capital bought during Romney's tenure, as an example of his success as a businessman. Isn't this the same Domino's which has been running nonstop ads forever now talking about how much they used to suck at everything? Is that a subliminal attack on Romney? Has the DNC been funding these ads the entire time? Or am I just hungry?
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is doing everything they can to regain Democratic control of the House, which would require flipping 25 seats. With polls showing support for a Democratic House is growing, could they pull this off?
It appears that Twitter's new attempt at censorship is extremely easy to get around.
Could it be that the Boston Red Sox might actually get a player of "significant value" from the Chicago Cubs as compensation for former general manager Theo Epstein, if for no other reason than Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig wants to discourage other baseball executives from trying to get out of their contracts early?
Tim Wakefield is still waiting for a call from the Red Sox. Wakefield's talking about being open to retirement or pitching for another team, but you know it would kill him to fall just short of being Boston's all-time wins leader. I wonder if the chances of that call happening have increased at all, now that it appears pitcher Roy Oswalt will be signing with the St. Louis Cardinals despite being pursued by Boston.
Is anyone worried that the Red Sox home opener is on Friday the 13th this year?
Mom Clutter and I saw The Iron Lady, starring Meryl Streep yesterday. Streep was terrific in her performance as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, but the rest of the movie isn't particularly good. You really don't get a sense of what made Thatcher who she was, and the scenes showing her struggling to get around in the current day and talking to the ghost of her late husband Dennis are too long. The plot is disjointed, and it never really comes together as a story. However, there are times where it's impossible to see Streep's face, and it looks like you're watching footage of the real former prime minister.
Who do we have to thank/blame for a possible Spice Girls reunion?

Okay kids, that's going to do it for now. Let's have Peter Tosh take us out with his take on Nina Simone's classic, "SinnerMan," for today's, "Song of the Day." I love the orginal, but this ain't bad either:
Thanks for stopping by, my friends. It was great to see you as always. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and don't forget to come back again soon. I promise BDH and Little Buddha will be awake, and we'll clear out a brand new round of randomness. Until then, today's Clutter is now cleared.
