Sunday Funnies


One event transcended all others last week and that was the death Thursday of Senator Edward Kennedy. The so-called Kennedy dynasty lost it's last living member, something not lost on America's editorial cartoonists...

subtorp77: Say what you will about the Kennedy "dynasty" - and there are a variety of opinions - but when I think of the 3 Kennedy brothers I think of how they eptitomize tragedy.

dizzblnd: Yeah that was a good one.

Quirks: I wonder if heaven's where he ended up?
With all the media focus on Ted Kennedy, I have to admit I've watched as little as possible. But for those who have been keeping track, has anyone mentioned the death of Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick? You know...where he ran the car off the bridge into the water, saved himself, went home, and failed to report the incident until her body was found the next day?

I'm just wondering.

Frank: And for years after it sent shivers up partygoers spines when someone said "Need a lift?"

I'm glad he's gone, and that ain't funny! Good cartoons though...

I watched his burial ceremony. Apparently a water break delayed the burial for two hours. Hence, it was conducted in the dark. Pitch dark. The TV camera had nowhere to focus except to pan to distant scenes and the lightning from an incoming storm.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
