It's choice, not chance, that determines our destiny.

The most I had ever paid for a hamburger was $10, which I thought was foolish. Yesterday, I went to Red Rock Casino to go to a movie with my pal Jack Binion. We stopped in a gourmet hamburger place in the Red Rock and got a $14.75 burger. It was a big restaurant but almost completely empty. The way the economy is right now, this is going to be tough for them to survive. The first thing people cut out is going out for lunch and dinner. I personally would rather have a whopper from Burger King, anyway.

The election is finally over and I'm glad. Martin Luther King said that someday, men would be judged by the content of their character, not by the color of their skin. Looks like that day has come; with Obama being our first African-American president. I voted for McCain because of some personal beliefs, but now that America has spoken, Obama is my president and I'll support him in any way that I can. I can only hope he will be able to turn our country around. President Obama is one of the best speakers I've ever heard.

I get asked a lot where I get the Doylisms I use to start my blog. A few of them are from me, but most of them are from things that I have read. They come from all walks of life and from different folks. I read a lot when I have time and I've taken the thoughts of a lot of authors, all the way from Will Rogers to Winston Churchill. There is a lot of wisdom in books if we take the time to find it.

I didn't go to Foxwoods for their World Poker Tournament. Besides the fact I'm trying to stop traveling so much, my plate is so full now I don't have any time. I have to do a book signing at the Rio that I committed to and also have to appear in their "pro pit". The Hall of Fame induction is Sunday and I have to make the introduction speech for my pal Dewey Tomko. I also have to do two shows for the Real Deal because most of their pros are out of town. I'm also addressing some issues with Microgaming, DoylesRoom's software provider. Everything will work out, but it takes time and effort.

Daniel: What do I do wrong?

Caddie: Sir, you spend so much time in bunkers, you get mail addressed to Hitler!


@EricOosterbeek No, it's just good natured ribbing. He is a cool guy.
