Ballot time?

And a question. Did they count American Idol votes in Florida?


Art Linkletter died today at the age of 97. Shocking news to many Americans who didn’t realize he was still alive.


At Linkletter’s funeral, there are no long speeches planned, but attendees are urged to say “the darndest things.”

British Petroleum refers to their latest operation to try to stop their gushing oil spill as “top kill.’ Which actually might be a good term to describe what millions of Americans want to do with BP executives.


The Orlando Magic not only have won the last two games of the NBA Eastern Conference finals, they have looked good doing it. So while the Celtics are still leading 3-2, there is talk they could actually lose this thing. Which would be the biggest collapse in Boston sports history… well, since last week anyway.

A cleaning crew at Philadelphia airport at 4am found a women passenger still asleep on a United Express regional jet. The cabin crew apparently failed to notice her when the plane landed around midnight. This is beyond shocking – someone can actually sleep on one of those little planes?

(A couple of my friends who fly regularly have added “they actually CLEAN those planes?”)

The University of Kansas is investigating a ticket scalping scheme whereby over $1 million of tickets in the last five years were sold inappropriately by athletic department employees. This would never happen at Stanford – in the past five years they haven’t sold $1 million in tickets.

Although at USC $1 million might be the budget for paying football and basketball players for their summer jobs.


The Los Angeles Dodgers are suing comedian Jon Lovitz. It’s for non-payment of season tickets. (Which the team resold.) Other comedians around the country were glad to find out the reason – because if joking about a baseball team becomes a lawsuit worthy offense, the Cubs could bankrupt every joke writer in America.

Joe Biden said today that he did NOT serve in Vietnam, and joked about not making a “Blumenthal mistake.” Meanwhile in Idaho, Vaughn Ward lost his primary race after a plagiarized speech many are calling a “Biden mistake.”


The University of Michigan is hoping their self-imposed sanctions will keep the NCAA from imposing harsher sanctions on their football program. Besides, with an 8-16 record over the past two years, it’s like suspending a .200 hitter for performance-enhancing drugs.


The San Francisco Giants have become one of the worst hitting teams in baseball over the last month, and now their ace, Tim Lincecum, has been rocked in two straight starts. The team’s motto this year, (which refers to their ballpark) “There’s magic inside.”

Maybe it’s time to see what can be done about taking the spell off.

    Although at USC $1 million might be the budget for paying football and basketball players for their summer jobs. don’t forget the housing rentals, that has to be pretty expensive in LA.

    (A couple of my friends who fly regularly have added “they actually CLEAN those planes?”) Sure, about once a week they turn em upside down and shake em. the planes, not the passengers.

    The Mariners have won 2 in a row…is that a streak, or just a fluke? Buoyed by their “offensive” outburst they say bring on those Sounders.

    Art died? Again?

    A+ on the Linkletter joke

    two on the same topic for your consideration:

    According to the BBC, a recent study has concluded that condoms manufactured to international standards are too big for the majority of Indian men. In a related development, the Pakistani population just set the Guiness record for the loudest simultaneous guffaw.

    According to the BBC, a recent study has concluded that condoms manufactured to international standards are too big for the majority of Indian men. I guess that explains the country’s cricket league’s slogan: “Chicks Dig The Bunt.”
