The Rand Girls, Ayn and Sally

A friend has changed his e-mail name to "randfan." He hastened to add that he meant Ayn, not Sally. That's too bad. I ain't smart enough to understand Ayn and all that stuff she wrote. But I sure appreciate Sally and her fans and bubbles.

Grissom, You're the man

CSI's Gil Grissom might be my favorite TV character. He's a perfect geek, nerd or whatever the currently correct word is ... knows more about forensics and bugs than anybody, but has no clue about relationships or women. Frustrated co-worker Sarah wants more than a working relationship and old Gil just can't figure out what's bugging her. I don't know if I'm supposed to be mad at him for being so dumb or at her for trying to pull something out of him that he doesn't have to give. Maybe that's what makes a good story. You can let it say whatever you want it to.

Mr. Foley and Me

I had an unpleasant and somewhat painful procedure at the doctor's office. I asked the nurse if anyone ever freaked out and demanded to be put to sleep. She said it's the younger guys who can't handle it. One of them, in for a vasectomy, passed out before they even started the operation, went home and never came back. By the time you achieve senior status, you have had so many surgeries and so many tubes and cameras poked into every known orfice that one more doesn't matter all that much.

Naked truth about blogosphere

It took ten clicks on the "Next blog" button to find one in English. Number ten was photos of naked Latinas. But I could read about them in English.

Hot Butts, Tight Jeans

Am I a dirty old man? Don't answer that. Am I seeing sex where it isn't? Are the current Old Navy commercials pornographic? Do most womens' butts look that good in tight jeans?

Diane Rehm/Ira Glass/Terry Gross

There's a blogger who can't stand NPR's Diane Rehm because she is old and talks slow. I can't listen to Ira Glass because he's young and talks too fast. So maybe Public Radio does have something for everyone. And there's Terry Gross. She talks OK ... holds some kind of record for the most bigshot guests who have walked out on her.

New Heights of Lawyer Creativity

There is a lawyer even more "creative" than the one who puts drunk drivers back on the road. This one took the case of the woman whose husband was burned by Starbuck's tea. She is suing because he burned his lips so bad that she can't kiss him.
