Cinema Dave  Swashbuckling ournalist and

Lent Day 1 Ash Wednesday

Once again, Cinema Dave will post something everyday until Easter Sunday, that is 47 days of posting something Cinema Dave hope you find interesting.

In an effort to reach across party lines, here is a story about Vice President Joe Biden's Ash Wednesday;

British TV host Kay Burley Wednesday mistook Vice President Joe Biden's Ash Wednesday ashes for a bruise on his forehead.

"What's happened to his head?" Burley asked on Sky News. "I'm sure that's what everyone's asking at home...it looks like he's walked into a door!"

Her co-host speculated that he may have fallen on the ice at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

Shortly thereafter, Burley apologized and said she realized it was Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent and the day when Catholics receive ashes on their foreheads. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/02/17/kay-burley-british-tv-hos_n_466501.html
