Dear young lady who just got off the bus:

Please go shopping and get a pair of pants that fit. Nobody wants to see your butt crack -- though it did get a few snickers after you were gone.

My youngest nephew turned 8 today.

I have three other nephews, aged 27, 20, and 19, plus two nieces aged 19 and 16. None of them is going to have any clue about what it is like to live without militarized police, heavy surveillance, stable jobs, or a secure future.

OK, ladies, so who wants to marry an NFL player?

Who here has seen the movie "Chocolat?"

There is a fascinating set of events that follows in the the small French town of Lasquene when the the town's mayor, the Comte Reynaud, is forced by newcomer Vianne to face the fact that the town drunkard, Serge, has been beating his wife Josephine. I suspect Reynaud has formerly turned a blind eye to the problem. But it is now handled in an intriguing manner: While Vianne looks after Josephine, Reynaud deals with Serge (amusingly, the first thing he does is to haul Serge off to the town priest for confession). In other words, the leading man of the town has decided it is his job to deal with a wife abuser, and make him stop. He does not let Serge make excuses, and does not blame Josephine. Essentially, the onus is on the abuser. This is as it should be.

So how are we supposed to pay for yet another war?

Nobody's been asking that. The American taxpayer is tapped out.

A Preview of Tonight:

Some of this sounds awfully familiar.
