I’m no conspiracy buff and certainly no structural engineer, but it still seems odd to me — counterintuitive — that an airplane crashing into the upper floors of a skyscraper could bring the thing to the ground.
“He’s got the weight of the world on his shoulders, quite literally.” — Piers Morgan, talking about Obama and proving that even the English don’t understand English.
There is a TV ad for something called Micro Plus, a hearing-aid thing that supposedly lets you overhear conversations taking place at a distance. In the ad, a bikinied babe walks past two other women and knowingly smirks as one of the women says, “She has an amazing body!”
This gadget seems like a good thing, but what if you wear it, walk down the street, and hear: “Look at the pot belly on that loser!” or “Look — that guy has a brown spot on the seat of his pants!”?
The Philadelphia Eagles have made dog-lover Michael Vick fabulously rich with a $100 million contract. Don’t you agree that it’s good to give people a second chance?
Everyone is in favor of giving people a second chance. But that isn’t the issue with Vick. The issue is awarding “second chances” that are lucrative beyond belief. There is a difference between being allowed to earn a living, and being handed the keys to paradise.
I recently bashed Entertainment Weekly (again) for its politically correct agenda. Also recently, I championed the U.S. Postal Service, which is in danger of extinction. So what happens this week? You guessed it: My issue of EW got lost in the mail.
So Oprah’s celebrity interviews are disingenuous? Why am I not surprised?
Funniest show you never heard of: Hell Date. You haven’t seen it because 1) it’s on BET, and you’re white; 2) it went off the air in 2008. But hey, you can still catch reruns or see it on the Web. It’s funny. Unless it’s fake. I’ll have to ask Ryan O’Neal.
