Jada and Will Smith: Where There Is Smoke There Is An Inferno

Jada and Will Smith: Where There Is Smoke There Is An Inferno
I am still anticipating the aftershocks of yesterday’s rumble.  No, I speak not of the East Coast trembling yesterday afternoon.  Nope, not at all.  I am still feeling the effects of the word out of LaLa Land…the imminent demise of THE Hollywood Power Couple…or do you, much like Oprah, consider them Hollywood Royalty? For a... Read more »

Give Me Kimmel: Oprah's Show is Over--Why Must the Reruns Remain?

I watched O’s final show yesterday–sat through the lessons–admired her–sing it with me–”twenty-five-yeeeearrrrs”–and turned off the TV.  Sure, I thought of putting on an old pair of jeans and grabbing some bubble wrap and boxes before heading down to Marina Towers to offer my assistance in helping her pack it up and finally move it...

BREAKING...OWN Ratings Tumble...RELATED...Can A Hastily Announced 26th Season Be Next?

A friend of mine asked an interesting question last week.  “Why” she asked, “has Oprah never interviewed Mayor Daley?” I found the inquiry interesting because I am always fascinated to discover a fan of The Legend.  How can anyone still be around twenty-five years later and still fall for Oprah’s phony bullshit? Yeah, yeah, Harpo... Read more »

Can We Figure Out A bin Laden Story and Stick to It?

Mr. President, I have a problem…and I know you are pretty busy, but it is a big one.  After letting the news of the week digest a bit I find I have plenty of questions.  Do you mind?   Okay, first and foremost.   What gives?  I am the first to admit I have spent the... Read more »

Saint Gemma~ Please Pray for my Wretched Soul

Even Matilda cannot wipe the smile off of her face when she gets a "knee-mail" from Lilo.
An All Saints Pew~I refinished an old church pew donated from the Chicago Archdiocese and a bit of artistic help from eager third graders…this was the end result that fetched $750 during a live auction at the boys’ school.   While I would not proclaim myself a “holy roller”, it is definitely not a stretch...

2011 Academy Awards Telecast: Yep, It Was THAT Bad...

Who was responsible for thinking Hathaway and Franco would equal Oscar Ratings Gold...back to the drawing board...The 84th Annual Academy Award Telecast is right around the corner.  My suggestion for bringing the youth audience next year...tweet it...the responses and reactions I read last night were priceless...and kept me awake...and I am old.
I have not thought about “lemons and lollipops” since my senior year at MAA.  Every edition of our school paper contained a section called “Lemons and Lollipops”. For one dollar, a student could “buy” the right to have a line published in this section.  A senior might plunk down a buck to say…”A Lemon to Sister Sandra... Read more »

..." truly groundbreaking stuff"  did I expect anything less??
Seems like the stars have aligned; at least as far as I am concerned.  My life will be easier, today, February 11, 2011…my gal O is hosting the gals from The View.  I can kill two birds with one stone and watch all of these numbskulls in one hour instead of two. The questions this... Read more »

Tucson Tragedy Aftermath: Let the Freakshow Begin...

Tucson Tragedy Aftermath: Let the Freakshow Begin...
Seems we have our “first” tragedy of 2011.  This time last year we were knee-deep in earthquake coverage.  The celebrities and politicians on both coasts were planning candle-lit-evenings while posturing with sad, glum faces and singing sappy love songs for the cameras…all in the name of fundraising for the poor, displaced people of Haiti…and, of...

The Obamas: A Family Just Like Us? Not Even Close...

The Obamas: A Family Just Like Us? Not Even Close...
 With all that is going on in the world it amazes me the media seeks out the important, mind-blowing stuff to report day in and day out.  North Korea causing trouble via military exercises aimed at South Korea??  People canceling vacations because of an out-of-control oil leak in the gulf???  Unemployment still near ten percent?? ...
