Tonight is one of those nights where “blast furnace” seems the appropriate description for what awaits you as you head out the back slider towards the pool. Everything is hot: the air, the wind, the patio. The pool is up to 92, so it’s more wet than it is refreshing. The wind undoubtedly comes from some big thunderstorms that have moved to our south and east. But at least the Pinot Grigio is chilled – at least for now!

First it was Danny Gans, today it was Fred Travelena. Seems like a bad year for impersonators. If I’m Rich Little, I’m making sure my will and insurance is up to date.

Here’s a twist on the non-stop Michael Jackson coverage that definitely makes you think – especially if you’re a football fan.

Wonder why there’s so little coverage about this in the U.S. state-run media? Oh… that’s right, I forgot which political party was in power.

Seems to me the President of the United State should always – whether agreeing with what’s going on in a foreign country or not – always come out on the side of that nation’s rule of law. That is, of course, unless you’re Barack Obama and you love to cozy up to idiot blowhard dictators like Hugo Chavez – so this news shouldn’t come as any surprise.

…If you don’t believe me, this headline should tell you all you need to know.

Whatever Michael Barone writes, I trust. And this is no different – well worth reading.

Just thinking… is the hockey season over?

Michelle Obama “knocks back a couple glasses of champagne” or “downs a couple martinis” over dinner and that’s cause for alarm about a possible drinking problem? Hell, I’ve seen Jana and Tracey knock back a couple of martinis before dinner and I don’t recall any uproar…

All I can say is, be careful, Michelle – that’s how you get rabbits in your house. And once you start it’s hard to stop.

Anyone who thinks The Beatles couldn’t rock hasn’t seen this video. I love it – positively electric. They don’t make ’em like that anymore…

And while we’re on our video kick, while all the talking-heads on the 24/7 cable channels are slobbering all over Michael Jackson, it might be a good idea to remember who “The King” of popular music actually was. Different times, I guess…
