Love the Bob Costas cartoon... nothing like getting up to the moment coverage.

I really feel badly for you Americans having to watch medal wins with Brian Williams at 6:30 before the delay from earlier in the day with Bob Costas. Here in Canada we got to see a lot of the events live.

I can't pretend that the Olympic events didn't happen five hours earlier. It's like reading the last page of a suspense novel before the first. I think NBC is in denial.

Seems NBC thought it should program as entertainment during prime time rather than sports as it happens. The only loser was the American viewer.

these are hilarious! How do you always find such entertaining comics?

The five hour delay ruined the Olympics for us in the states. What a lame decision.

No amount of research is too much for my faithful readers, Meleah. My fave this week was "curiosity killed the cat".

We were lucky. Not only were the Olympics mostly live but we had several channels with different events to choose from.

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…
