Yes, it is the guy from Wings! He also appeared, briefly, all too briefly, in The Big Year, but I watched that movie three times just to see Weber!
I always liked this guy, and the fact that he can write, whooooaaa! Fantastic altogether. And I like the way he thinks, especially about voting for millionaires. This guy is good. He’s a bit of a boyo alright!
In today’s Huffington Post Weber gives 10 tips to help us cast a vote, will it be a better vote, a vote for the right man for the job? I don’t know, but I do know I won’t be doing number 6, at least not until I get inside the booth!
Here’s Weber’s advice, and nicely written too I might add; lovely sentence variation, similies and great imagery used to tell America to get off its a$$ and just vote.
“The irony is that the people we tend to vote for actually look down on voters and voting. That’s just idiotic, right? That’s like a snake eating its own tail! A wolf in a trap gnawing off its own head to escape! And yet, voting has become a power shakily wielded by a senile superhero, who has to be nudged into sentience to then shuffle into a school cafeteria or a church basement in order to look at a confusing conglomeration of fonts and “make a choice”, only to then go back to their once cool superhero lair which is now lit by bare light bulbs and festooned with brassieres hanging from clothespins and refrigerator magnets to watch “the results”. Better to place a half a stick of butter and handful of corn kernels in your mouth, put your head in a microwave for 60 seconds and then enjoy a mess-free treat! (But don’t forget to record it with a handy iPhone or what the hell difference would living make?)
But voting’s pretty much all we have left, America. So get off your ass and do it.”
OK then, I’m off to vote. Here’s to Election 2012
