The buck stops….?

“The buck stops anywhere but here” award today goes to Rupert Murdoch. Asked by a member of a parliamentary committtee “Do you accept that ultimately you are responsible for this whole fiasco?” Murdoch simply responded: “No.”

Potentially scary questions about Murdoch media enterprises in the U.S. Do they have higher ethical standards than their compatriots in the U.K? Or have they just not been caught yet?

A Northern California man who started a fire by smoking meth with a blowtorch near a container of gunpowder has been sentenced to 45 days in jail. Although he missed out on the prize he richly deserved – a Darwin award.

The latest Michele Bachmann headlines are about her possibly incapacitating migraines. And Bachmann has responded “I have prescribed medication that I take whenever symptoms arise and they keep the migraines under control.” Just one more addition to the list of those who benefit from good healthcare, and still want to deny it to many Americans.

Adds Alex Schubert: “Considering her public speaking ability, she should share some of her migraine medication.”

Michael Vick is now working with three members of congressmen to support an anti-dogfighting bill. Well, it’s no stranger (and will do a lot more good) than many divorced and/or unfaithful politicians supporting the Defense of Marriage Act.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a Colorado air traffic controller for allegedly working while intoxicated. In the controller’s defense, he said he was studying for his pilot’s license.

Delta Airlines has indicated plans to pull out of 15 small towns if they don’t get increased federal subsidies. Six of those cities are in Minnesota, and Delta is the only carrier serving them. Will someone please ask Michele Bachmann and Tim Pawlenty to confirm their anti-goverment spending stance on this one?

Seattle Mariners fans were shocked tonight when their team, who would have to go on a offensive tear to make it up to “light-hitting,” actually scored five runs in the first two innings.

Then reality set in and the Mariners didn’t score again and lost 6-5 in 14 innings.

And okay creative readers,  who wants to guess what Brian Wilson will wear next week for the San Francisco Giants’ visit to the White House?

    Re Brian Wilson – how about “tan shoes with pink shoelaces, a polka dot vest and man oh man, tan shoes with pink shoelaces and a big panama with a purple hat band”.

    And in both cases, they asked the same question after being caught? ‘Who let the dog out?’

    “And okay creative readers, who wants to guess what Brian Wilson will wear next week for the San Francisco Giants’ visit to the White House?”

    I can see Wilson in spandex Continental Congress attire, complete with powdered wig and buckled shoes. He might even sign a baseball for Obama with “Got Heem!”

    An Abe Lincoln stovepipe hat, with a SF logo and orange trim.

    More than likely, he doesn’t get in the WH unless he’s Brian Wilson. (Although if there’s a Michele Bachmann mask on the market, I think he’d try that get-up, which would give Obama the chance to use the old ‘not tonight, dear, you are a headache’ line.)

    How bout those M’s, scoring 5 runs in the first 2 innings and they still leave the field with their 10 straight loss and a scoreless-innings streak of 12. That has to make the A’s, Padres and Giants a little envious, doesn’t it?

    Paris Hilton walked out on an interview with ABC’s Dan Harris. It could have been a clumsy exit for Hilton but fortunately, she swallowed her gum before departing.
