“Dallas” saw a season high ratings with the episode featuring J.R. Ewing’s funeral. We can only hope that it gives an idea to the producers of “The Apprentice”.

NPR is reportedly making a push to attract an under 30 audience. The only problem is finding anyone under 30 who actually has a radio.

That’s it for now, Oh Faithful Readers! I am going to continue to ask for donations to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation until each one of you ponies up. That could be as many as seven, but I am ready to wait. Just click on the Great Strides icon and give as much as you can in the memory of my wife Karen. It’s all you need to do to get me to send the love!
