start rant


I was SO not a fan of Barbara Bush, least of all when she said this about the thousands of refugees crammed into the Astrodome: "So many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this, this is working very well for them."

Or when she said this about the imminent invasion of Iraq: "Why should we hear about body bags and deaths? It’s not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?"

Or when when giving her opinion of Geraldine Ferraro: "I can't say it but it rhymes with 'rich'."

However, she was correct when she said, in hindsight of the worst economic meltdown since the Depression thanks to her son's eight years of bumbling: "We've had enough Bushes."

Rot in hell, lady.


Harry Anderson wasn't supposed to be a TV star, and he was never a good actor, but I always enjoyed his take on comedy and magic and I mourn his passing.

And so I leave you with Harry the same way I found him, on a 1986 Showtime special called "Hello, Sucker!"


As for Carl Kasell he was, in his later years, NPR's answer to Don Pardo and we knee-jerk liberals couldn't get enough of him. I lament never having the opportunity to have his personal voice message on my home answering machine.

I know his soul did not go heavenward but I do know his voice is faintly being heard by distant civilizations intelligent enough to develop public radio. Though what they'll make of the "Listener Limerick Challenge" is anyone's guess.
