Rock Does It Right

All the buzz before tonight’s opening monologue at the 88th Oscars was what Chris Rock would say.

Chris Rock did it right.

Never one to shy away from controversy, Chris Rock handled the current boycott of the Oscars by some within the black community with humor, insight and on the mark.

Often I have found Rock to be over-the-top and inciting anger and division. Tonight, Rock was a rock of rationality and hitting the mark.

Diversity is needed in all walks of the American life. But let us get our priorities right and focus on what is really important in life.

As Rock pointed out why wait until the 88th Oscars to boycott?

He rightly noted in decades passed the focus was on those things which had a real impact on every day life – like staying alive.

From the Cornfield, hats off and give that man an Oscar!

Chris Rock showed he was the right host for the right time.

Father, grandfather, political pundit - I am Mark Ivy. I am father to two wonderful sons, Dave and Kev, of whom I am very proud;two terrific daughters-in-law, Anna and Hailey; three beautiful granddaughters: Dylan, Alaina and Amelia. On September 2, 2014, I was diagnosed with disseminated histoplasmosis, a fungal infection, discovered by a biopsy of my larynx. The infection is fatal if left untreated. For 2 1/2 years I lived under a death sentence being misdiagnosed with a non-specific bacterial infection which left my right lung a "dried up sponge" and non-functioning. I was aggressively treated for the infection with antifungals. The treatment ended October of 2015 and fortunately did not take two years. I suffer from chronic Horton's Syndrome. The effects vary widely causing various problems. Statistically, Horton's affects only 0.1% of the population. Major depression also attacks me regularly.
