What you missed by leaving early

Dear Dan,

I've been watching movies and thinking about the bits you would have loved. Then I started thinking about other things you missed in other areas.

Here are some tings you missed by leaving early:
I think you would have loved the Obama campaign -- primary through election. Some of the things that have happened since -- stalling and dragging of feet by the opposing Party --  would have made you as crazy as it's making me, but I know you would love this man's grace under pressure.

Monsters vs. Aliens -- The president playing "Axel F" from Beverly Hills Cop. Steven Colbert as the president, Link, Dr. Cockroach and B.O.B would have had you rolling on the floor.

Avatar -- You would have been in love with the visuals as much as I.

Alice -- Another film and 3-D you would have flipped over. The rumor about HP - Deathly Hallows 3-D would have you pondering.

Ahmadinejad's trip to Columbia and his statement. 'Nough said.

I think you would be proud of mom and me, dealing with some of the things we've dealt with since you've been gone. I think you would be happy with how we've handled the apartment.

You would be very excited about Mac technology -- including the iPad.

And e-books. We would have had some good discussions about the technology.

I think you would be pleased to see the photos of the technique I was talking to you about -- the way we can possibly blend our crafts and talents.

You left the party too soon, my brother. Way too soon.

I love you, Danno.
