Things We Said Today
2006-11-21 - 11:10 a.m.
Skipped a day yesterday...just had too much to do and not enough time to do it all. Sorry if I worried you.
Well, let's see what's been going on...
Rupert Murdoch, the head honcho over at Fox, decided that O.J.'s "confession" special would be a Really Bad Idea. There must've been so much backlash that everyone - except O.J., presumably - decided not to do it.
Today's OC Register's editorial cartoon shows Murdoch...well, go here and take a look for Mike Shelton's cartoon.
That about says it all.
Article in said paper also includes another PS3 incident. Seems a guy bought two of them and put an ad up on Craigslist offering to sell them for $5,000. Two guys agreed to meet him in a McDonald's parking lot - at 1:30am.
You can guess what happened. The "buyers" pepper-sprayed the seller and made off with both PS3s. They were caught and arrested shortly after.
Read yesterday's post for my opinions on this. They still haven't changed.
Michael Richards went down in flames after flaming two black audience members.
I was never really a fan of "Seinfeld", but I did enjoy Richards' work in this classic.
Evidently he CAN be funny, as long as someone else is writing for him.
Speaking of deaths...
Just found out director Robert Altman passed away. He was one of film's great directors, with credits from the original "MASH" to "Come Back To The 5 And Dime, Jimmy Dean Jimmy Dean" to eipsodes of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents", "Maverick", "Combat!" and even "Saturday Night Live". His last film was this year's "Prairie Home Companion".
Watch for eulogies from actors and producers throughout Hollywood and beyond.
An item from Neal Boortz's blog:
It seems that many university graduate students like to hang little sayings, news clippings, pictures and whatnot outside their office doors. A Marquette grad student did just that, and along comes James South, the Chairman of the Philosophy Department, who orders the offending item removed.
So ... what was the item, and why was it so offensive? It was a quote from a Dave Barry column. To (as they say in the legal profession) wit:
"As Americans, we must always remember that we all have a common enemy, an enemy that is dangerous, powerful and relentless. I refer, of course, to the federal government."
South says that the quotation is "patently offensive." Ohhhhhhhh. That, by the way, is the same term Marquette uses to define hard-core porn.
And on THAT note...
...be seeing you.
