" " When is Putin going to be a guest speaker at Lied Center?" "

" Dukakis was just here, a reliable body double.

Isn't that good enough? "

Probably not.

Best go with the Putin wannabe ... the one who looked into the exKGB agent's eyes, saw his soul and liked what he saw.

Do you take new health and nutrition findings seriously?


Truth is, I hadn't been to shows or clubs for years so I didn't know much about him, but saw stories and comments at the Wichita Eagle and here.

Anita Cochran (who did the story) did a really nice commentary about him and his music on Chan 3 News after he died.

I'd never seen her do a commentary like that, so she must have been a big fan.

Don't know if you get Wichita's Chan 3, but they had a story last night you can check out.

Surviving Cancer: Loved ones left behind

If the shortcut doesn't work just go to

and scroll to the list "Health News" ... should be a story of the same name above. There's a streaming webcast to click on.

Do you think professors should take a more active role in lowering textbook prices?

" For you to go on and on about how old people are unhappy today... "



It was just an old SNL transcript I'd recently found with one of my favorite Dana Carvey characters, "Grumpy Old Man" ... I just assumed that most we're familiar with it, but probably should have credited it anyway. At any rate, it wasn't intended as levity at the expense of the elderly.

Harrumph. Quitcher complainin', it could be worse! ;)


Grumpy Old Man:

I'm old and I'm not happy. In my day, we didn't have video-games! We just sat around and watched a potata' bake!

Everything today is improved and I don't like it. I hate it!

In my day we didn't have hair dryers. If you wanted to blow dry your hair you stood outside during a hurricane. Your hair was dry but you had a sharp piece of wood driven clear through your skull and that's the way it was and you liked it!

You loved it.

Whoopee, I'm a human head-kabob!

We didn't have Manoxidol and Hair Wings, in my day if your hair started falling out when you were 16 by 19 you were a bald freak.

There was nothing you could do about it.

Children would spit at you and nobody would mate with you so you couldn't pass on your disgusting baldness genes. You were a public menace, a crome dome by age 20 and that's the way it was and we liked it!

We loved it! Hallelujiah look at me, I'm a bald freak oh happy day!

Not like today, everybody feeling good about themselves. I hate it!

In my day we didn't have these thin laytex condoms. So you could enjoy sexual pleasure. In my day there was only one kind of condom. You took a rabbit skin and wrapped around your privates and tied it off with a bungee cord and you couldn't feel nothing!

And half the time you didn't even know your partner was there. And we used the same one over and over again! 'Cause we were ignorant morons!

Just a bunch of hairless, head-kabobs standing around with rabbit skins on our dinks and that's the way we liked it!

Did you think the war in Iraq would last this long when it started in 2003?

Always thought it would be much longer.

We never had the tech and resources necessary, nor are there enough tankers available, to remove all of our oil out from under their sand in such a short time.

It'll take decades, unless we can just float it all here in massive oil slicks and guide it into the Gulf of Mexico.

"Long, hard, slog.", that inadvertent bit of truth that escaped Rumsfailed's lips, pretty much sums it up.

Pilgrim :
"Notice a pattern there, BOE?"


Yep. There's nearly 1.8 million FNC viewers that know more about the ongoing ANS tragedy, than the poor slobs who watch CNN, MSNBC, CNBC. At least that many almost got to know "How OJ did it." ;)

Definitely a pattern.


"Cheerleading for the the right? You'd have to be nuts to think so."


A person would have to be delusional not to see it. You don't know who Ailses is?

"Fair and balanced" is _ their _ joke. Surely you get that, right?

It's not a claim, it's a taunt ... like "No Spin Zone", "We report, you decide" or when Fox News "wishes you well".

" Pilgrim, it is indeed a bitter pill to swallow for the far-left knowing full well that FNC is the top rated news channel. "



Hence the obsession with A N Smith, right? Is that news?

A ratings point represents 1,114,000 households, or 1 percent of the nation's estimated 111.4 million TV homes. The share is the percentage of in-use televisions tuned to a given show.

NBC's "Nightly News" won the evening-news ratings race, averaging 9.9 million viewers (6.9, 13).

ABC's "World News" had 9.5 million viewers (6.6, 12) and the

"CBS Evening News" had 7.6 million (5.2, 9).


Fox News ratings
take a steep tumble

Its audience is down 24 percent from a year ago

By Kevin Downey
Nov 2, 2006

October was the 10th anniversary of Fox News, and in that 10 years it has risen to the No. 1 cable news network, riding on the tagline "Fair and Balanced."

Yet Fox News is showing serious signs of aging, led by steep audience declines.

Fox News's total audience fell 24 percent in the past year, to 1.3 million viewers from 1.7 million, and its key primetime audience, viewers ages 25-54, was down 7 percent in October on a year-to-year basis, to an average 363,000 viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research data.

In third quarter, Fox News suffered a 38 percent decline in 25-54s, to 409,000. In second quarter, that audience was down 22 percent and in first quarter it slid 28 percent. It is still No. 1 by a long shot.

Fox attributes the 2006 declines to a soft news year compared to 2005, which saw audiences shoot up during events like Hurricane Katrina, the Asian tsunami and the death of Pope John Paul II.

Bill Shine, senior vice president of programming at Fox News, tells Media Life: "The numbers that everybody goes by are year-to-year numbers, and 2005 was an incredible year for news compared to 2006."

But Fox's problems go deeper than that. If it was just the dearth of big stories this year, all the other cable networks would be down as well. Two were actually up in October.

CNN has also been down steeply this year in total viewers and 25-54s but not as much as Fox, and in October its 25-54 primetime audience was essentially flat at down 1 percent.

And both Headline News and MSNBC were actually up in that demo last month, by 18 percent and 19 percent.

Coulter speaks

Walter Reed is just more evidence of the Bush Administration's Katrina/"Heckuva job Brownie" style incompetence.

It's about the way the wounded are being treated, not the war. They'll never fix a damn thing if their feet aren't held to the fire. Because of the WashPost story, recovering soldiers will now and in the future, receive better treatment. Of course that costs tax dollars, so I can see why you're disappointed.

This is what happens after 6 years of Republicans in charge of committees that handle oversight and accountability, esp. with a Republican president.



shall we learn about the treatment of our military who have been wounded,

OR ,

the tragic, tragic, tragic, tragic, tragic, tragic, tragic, tragic, tragedy that is the Anna Nicole Smith saga?:

FauxNews decides!

Somebody else will have to do the reporting.
