I'm back, baby. Prepare for an onslaught of posts. Probably.

Very funny, Theater of Youth

Theater of Youth is opening its 37th season with a production of the Boxcar Children. I'm sure this will be very helpful in preparing Western New York's children for their new lives as hobos.

Did you ever see the movie "It"?

Wednesday, September 24, 2008


Being lucky enough not to have a home, a car made after 1995, any investments, stocks, equity or possessions with any real value, the economic crisis really hasn't had much of an effect on my life so far. I'm basically a clean pair of pants away from being classified as an "urchin," so I'm just sort of rollin with it and seeing how the whole thing pans out for the Haves.

But now, I see -- every one of us is affected:

The cost of road salt is going up and that's of particular concern for Erie County, which uses more of it annually than any other county in New York State.

"What we're finding for road salt is an increase in price for this coming winter of 30%," said Erie County Public Works Commissioner Gerard J. Sentz.

But, but without our space-age snow-obliterating tecmologies, we'll all end up like Jack Nicholson in the last scene of The Shining by November 15! We're as good as dead, people! AS GOOD AS DEAD.

Dear Luke Russert: Being from South Buffalo means never having to say you're sorry.

Apparently, Luke Russert, the luscious son of the late Buffalo booster Tim Russert who NOW HAS A GIG ON NBC NEWS I MEAN I KNOWS HE'S GRIEVING BUT COME ON HE'S 22 oh I'm sorry, where was I? So today he said that kids at UVA are smart, and therefore they're leaning towards voting for Obama.

First of all, lol, college kids voting. I was usually three beers in the bag by the time I remembered it was Election Day, and then a good Lifetime movie would come on and it was whoops, sorry democracy, catch you in two years.

But apparently it's not OK to just come out and say something like that, so he wrote a weird post on the MSNBC blog, in which he apologizes by saying:

I MEANT to say that many of the kids who go to UVA are from affluent, highly educated households who are leaning Obama and hence their kids lean Obama.

Um, what? So... you're saying... that... highly-educated... people... vote for... Obama. OK, just making sure.

Bottom line, here, Lukey: I've spent a good deal of time in South Buffalo, the place of your father's birth and still home to Big Russ. If someone calls you on something, just break a bottle on the curb and lunge at them until they concede! It seems more dignified than what goes on in the media, anyway.

Love, Me

ps Give me a call sometime.

We'll take what we can get.


'Grey's Anatomy' references Kevin Everett's medical case in season premiere

Thursday's two-hour series opener of ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" has a local angle that should drive local viewership of the popular medical series even higher.

The medical treatment that former Buffalo Bill Kevin Everett received last season is referenced a few times in a plot line about an accident victim who suffered severe spinal injuries.

Everett isn't mentioned by name but the script mentions that therapeutic hydrothermia was used on "a Buffalo football player."

For more details, read a review of the program in Thursday's edition of The Buffalo News.

This was under the "breaking news" section. I do love him, though. Look at that shirt! And isn't his fiance a babe?
