Hahaha! Those about sum the week in news up for sure. BTW, our seafood, especially shrimp right now, is as good as always so far. In fact, many fish species being caught are very large due to the earlier ban on fishing. Sweeeet!

Hilarious and dead on as usual.
Awesome! That Airline Jet Blue one is the best thing I have seen all week!

Don: Hey, Don, that's great news. Put me down for some shrimp, eh? Funny how some good actually comes from such a friggin' disaster.

Kelly: Well, I look for the funniest out there. Some editorial cartoonists are just hilarious.

Brahm: Hey, how's my Studio30+ buddy? Some cartoonists had a lot of fun over that Jet Blue incident. They guy actually wanted his job back. I never heard the end of the story.

Those are great!

But I'm still glad I'm allergic to seafood. That way I can hide my cowardice. Just wouldn't be worth the risk, ya know?

What's the best gulf food you happen to see?

Quirks: Allergic to seafood? Poor you. Oh, well Starkist wasn't looking for tuna with good taste, but that tasted good. Sorry, Quirky!

Great minds think alike again. I used the Tea Partier/"We the People..." one on my Sunday piece about the Mosque controversary.

Jayne: That was a good one wasn't it. Do you think this mosque thing is all a tempest in a Tea pot? (heh, heh)

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…
