    The older we get, the more we miss shows like Jackie Gleason, Red Skelton and even Ed Sullivan.  But, there is always DWTS, the Daily Show, Craig Fergusson, NCIS and CSI.  There is lots of mindless entertainment out there to take the taste of the news out of your mind.

    Unfortunately, too many Americans are watching Bill O'Reilly, Nancy Grace, Dateline, 20/20 and the prison porn of MSNBC.  And they think they are being informed and educated.  It is no surprise that, fed this daily diet, the right wing is so terrified of life.

    There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. - Elizabeth Warren

      college (a large Eastern state university), I mentioned Jackie Gleason and nobody in the class knew who he was.  Of course, this was no great shakes considering they didn't know who Winston Churchill was either.
