About moc

My name is Mike O'Connell. I am 35 years old and live in Northern Virginia. I am a teacher, a musician, and an enthusiast of all things American.

American holidays

As goes my usual custom, I’m spending this Memorial Day in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, with real Americans celebrating a real American holiday. Small towns, real people, and respect. That’s Memorial Day.

The music of Frank Sinatra finally made it to Mad Men last night. Of course true Sinatraphiles hate the song “My Way” and true Mad Men aficionados hate this season… but nobody’s perfect.
