Hmm, so it’s not hot the past two days – wow. After the blistering high temperatures of the weekend (wherein I became convinced of the reality of global warming and spent the entire time indoors in air conditioning), the cooler temperatures feels alien…
Hmm, so what’s with Slate? Dahlia Lithwick and Emily Bazelon are saying that Supreme Court nominee John Roberts really isn’t so bad (or, at least, that the left-of-center folks will swallow him as someone who isn’t so bad).
There’s this picture in today’s Daily News of the dog that won the ugliest dog contest (a Californian dog); he (or she?) really didn’t look very pleasant. The picture’s also in Newsday. Daily News is asking NY’ers to see if we can top that ugly Californian dog, and offered the contest winner’s dog a day at doggie spa. Umm, sure.
And, while I’m happy that Dick Clark is planning to be back for the upcoming Rockin’ New Year’s Eve, I’m not sure what to make of his intending to bring along his anointed successor, American Idol’s Ryan Seacrest. Seacrest has already taken over the old Casey Kasem Top 40 show on the radio; must he aim to take over other things? Well, I’ll reserve judgment – for all I care, he and Simon Cowell might end up joining forces to host tv bloopers to replace Dick Clark and Ed McMahon.
