George Zimmerman may not be a racist

Okay, raise your hand if you forgot the cheering, whooping and hollering by tons of black people when O.J. Simpson was foolishly found NOT GUILTY of slashing to death two white people?  Hmmm, I didn’t think so.  But, they were just white folks.  So, who cares?  In fact, I don’t think anyone was compelled to...

Book 'Em, Rahm!

Okay, where are Starsky & Hutch when you need them?  Watching Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s press conference, on the recent crimes being committed in the city of Chicago, makes me long for even pretend justice.  It was classic Rahm — cryptic, pandering and full of baloney!!  If it weren’t so pathetic, it would  be humorous to...

Moody & Sleazy in Chicago - The Jackson Family Chronicles

If there ever was a reason to promote Prozac, Sandi & Jesse Jackson Jr. should sign on immediately as spokespeople for the mood-altering drug.  If they don’t, I will happily fill in for them, because I cannot bear another second of their constant press manipulation, political grandstanding and phony baloney medical updates. It may just... Read more »

Really, Rahm?

Once again, Mr. Power-Hungry Man has a bug up him and has spoken way too soon.  I get that an Alderman, who wants his 15 minutes of fame, is so quick to make nasty accusations against a hard-working business owner.  However, the mayor of a major American city has now deemed it necessary to weigh...

Pet Poodle Shrinks and wasted tax dollars

Like most of humanity, I have suffered some deep sadness in life.  I didn’t need any Xanax or to update my living will —  but, I totally get how debilitating those times can be.   I am also a big believer in strong therapeutic assistance.   Along with a  creamy bread pudding, professional help can be very...

Morning television is making me sick

Since I am nine times more likely to die from a TV falling on my head this year than winning the Mega Millions Lottery, I can only hope it happens while Oprah Winfrey, Katie Couric and other really rich, self-important people are clawing at each other this week for more attention on television. Good God,... Read more »

Occupy This! - Kelly's Vent-i-lation

Just yesterday, I had the altogether unpleasant experience of observing the Occupy Chicago protesters outside of the Board of Trade building on LaSalle Street. Let me tell you, somebody is missing the boat when it comes to guerrilla street marketing.  There is really a pressing need for samples of “America’s #1 Roll-On” — BAN deodorant. ... Read more »

Rosie's Post-Menopausal Show

Well, in a world where Ernest Borgnine can become an ordained minister online, not much should surprise me. EXCEPT for Rosie O’Donnell arriving at Harpo Studios without a bra on!!   Clad in what looks like a nightshirt for a NIGHTLINE interview, she gave viewers an inside look at the debut of The Rosie Show. I... Read more »

Burke's Bogus Bodyguards - Kelly's Vent-i-lation!

Okay, after the news broke last week that Chicago taxpayers are paying almost $600,000 per year for Alderman Edward Burke’s bodyguards, did it suddenly get very quiet at City Hall? Shhhh– we mustn’t say this too loudly.   But, let’s call it what it is — SHAMEFUL — and another over-the-top public official taking advantage of ... Read more »

Boycott the Breast-feeding Baby! - Kelly's Vent-i-lation

You have got to be kidding me!!!  So, for a mere $69.99 (plus tax & shipping), you too can have your 8-year-old simulate breast-feeding with a new baby doll.  Gee, and we wonder why the Chinese own the world. That’s what every mother’s hopes and dreams should be for her little daughter — before mastering... Read more »
