Oh poodles and kittens, you came back. I welcome you to another round of the mid-week news, where we relish in the current events, cringe at headlines, and jump all over what’s happening in our dear world. Here we reconvene for another roundabout recap of all the national and international news, the stuff that proves that we as a species are, well, meh. This week has been a doozy, so strap on your helmet and let’s dive on in. Read More End Of the Week News: Yes Indeed
More and more, public figures seem to be unable to extricate themselves from scandal gracefully, so much so that often the apology gets them in more trouble than the original misbehavior. Think about Bill Clinton parsing words about what “is” means, Mark Sanford permanently making “hiking the Appalachian Trail” into a joke, or anything relating to Anthony Weiner.

The Paula Deen/diabetes cracks have been fast and furious. She loves butter! She apparently has a recipe for a hamburger between two donuts! She is an indication of everything that is wrong with America today, and she deserved/asked for/should have expected/is being punished with/has been deceitful about diabetes! Paula Deen (plus) diabetes (equals) high comedy! Read More Takedown: Paula Deen-abetes

Here’s a quick public service announcement: if you have pink eye, stay home! Don’t go around town rubbing your eye and then touching doorknobs and handles! Be responsible, and stay home and watch TV so you don’t spread the horror. That’s what I did. Thank you. Read More Why Does Food Network Soothe My Soul?
