Sunday Morning Bobblehead Thread

Bull Durham (1988)

We all walk around with a core set of beliefs. I believe that this country benefits from progressive politics, that we need an honest and independent media. I believe that the OWS movement has incrementally shifted the conversation, but that we have far to go. I believe that committed, smart and politically engaged liberals can disagree. I believe that the entire country needs collective lessons in manners and respectful interchanges. And I believe that Sunday after Sunday, the news shows will spend more time on what they think you should believe instead of what really matters. Those long, slow kisses? I believe in those too.
