NBC-Not News Network
This is just deplorable.

Talk shows Past Part 2
From there I navigated to a 5 parter that Phil Donahue did with Ayn Rand during the late 70's.
Great stuff from a great woman, see them all.

Things you never knew
This headline from this mornings Fox News website:
Who knew that cavemen had cars? Watching TV and reading I always though they slept in caves, hence the name Cavemen. Well you learn something new everyday.

At least it is the first time I saw it. CNBC's Squawk Box had a segment titled Blogs add Profits. Maybe there might be some money in this stuff after all.
Ad a note of caution the host suggested at the end that the money might come to Lawyers wanting to sue Bloggers.

You know CNN is Desparate
when they begin advertizing the Paula Zahn show on Fox News during the O'Reilly Factor.

I have not written about this recently (you haven't written about anything recently(I know I know)) but two statements by Dan Rather struck me as very interesting and illustrative of why Dan has outlived his relevance and should be let out to pasture.
First his statement that while the docments may be fake the substance is true. How arrogant. Not only arrogant but what he is saying is that if a cop knows that someone is guilty of something then it is ok to plant false evidence to put that person in jail. No wonder Dan was able to get an interview with Saddam, they seem to have a lot in common in the methods they think are acceptable.
Second is his recent statement that is there is something wrong with the statement he wants to be the one who breaks the story. DUH!!
I think that Ronald Reagan, Charlton Heston and Dan rather have something in common. The difference is that Dan did not pull himself off the public stage before his loss caused him to embarass himself and his organization.

Not normally a big news month this August is shaping up as a busy one.
Right on the horizon waiting to blow both of them away is the capture of Saddam.
Of course we will be cursed with more terror attacks also.

Meet the Press
I sat through the entire thing and managed to do it on only one shot of JDsb.It was pretty much as I expected. Carl Levin is one of the most partisan people in congress and he didn't miss a chance. Funny I never noticed it before but his eyebrows slant upwards and in. It kind of makes his whole face look like a steeple. Andrea was biased as ever. Tim makes you think he is even handed, Andrea can't pull that off.

I got my Meet the Press
I managed to tape it it when it was re-broadcast late last might on CNBC. When I found out that Andrea Mitchell was sitting in for Tim and that the vile Carl Levin was one of the guests I knew I would have to get something to get me through the tape. I went down to the local store and bought some cigars and a bottle of JD Single barrel. Did you know that the actual number of the barrel the bottle comes from is imprinted on the neck label? Good stuff but at $35 per bottle a bit pricey for me. I hope it doesn't take much to get me through the program.
