    1. The Post Office Get ready to imagine a world without the Post Office. They are so deeply in financial trouble that there is probably no way to sustain it long term. Email, Fed Ex, and UPS have just about wiped out the minimum revenue needed to keep the Post Office alive. Most of your mail every day is junk mail and bills. 2. The Check Britain is already laying the groundwork to do away with check by 2018. It costs the financial system billions of dollars a year to process checks. Plastic cards and online transactions will lead to...

    President Barack Obama signed a bill into law on Thursday guaranteeing himself Secret Service protection for the rest of his life. White House press secretary Jay Carney said Obama signed the “Former Presidents Protection Act of 2012” on Thursday. The law affects Obama, former President George W. Bush and future presidents, who under current law would only be protected for 10 years after leaving office. According to the press secretary’s office, the law “restores lifetime Secret Service protection of former Presidents who did not serve as President prior to January 1, 1997, and their spouses; and provides for protection of...

    From our seats in front of the television, it certainly feels like the TV network programmers have all the power to entertain us. But the press gatherings of the Television Critics Association in Tinseltown suggest that others audaciously think they should be in the driver's seat, and they're not shy about saying so. The latest TCA press tour showed off the intimidating power of the television critics flailing away at young, shy Bristol Palin, who's returning to ABC for an all-star version of "Dancing with the Stars." Look, there's no doubt that Sarah Palin has figured out a way...

  • Pink Horror

    Why do people occasionally enjoy having the bejesus scared out of themselves by watching horror movies? Maybe it’s a way to relieve stress or to recall vague, primal memories of being hunted. Those regular chompings by various beasties must be wired into our DNA, so seeing an Alien bite into somebody triggers a cellular reaction. A regular squirt of adrenalin into the veins might be a physiological necessity. Doubtless, there are psychological theories aplenty, and probably one of them explains the gory details of today’s theme. However, we can ignore all of these sophistications, because our purpose today is to...

    Here's a TV show I've been wanting to watch and review and finally got around to it. It's from Lifetime TV and it's got a real cute premise. The show is titled "Gay, Straight or Taken" and yes, a hetero female has to choose a possible future love connection from three guys which are, ahem, either gay, straight, or taken. Some notes on the Superbowl 2007 commercials....funny, funny notes.

    Hollywood's elite gathered Thursday night to pay tribute to Sean Connery, who received The American Film Institute's annual lifetime achievement award. Directors Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, and actors Harrison Ford, Andy Garcia and Mike Myers were among the stars who cheered on the legendary actor at the ceremony held at the Kodak Theatre. Myers wore a tuxedo jacket and a kilt to honor the Scottish actor. "Men want to be him, women want him, and in my case I both want to be him and want him," Myers joked. "He's extremely professional, very talented and has an amazingly strong...

    Score another round this week for Frank Quattrone. Silicon Valley's once-powerful investment banker won a ruling Friday that overturned a order banning him for life from working in the stock-market industry. The Securities and Exchange Commission voted 5-0 to overturn the ban imposed by an industry regulator, the National Association of Securities Dealers. Now NASD must decide whether to try again to discipline Quattrone for refusing to testify in an investigation of activities during the technology industry boom. Earlier this week, on Monday, a federal appeals court in New York overturned Quattrone's conviction on charges of obstructing justice. Prosecutors have...

However, Lifetime Networks have demanded a rate increase of over 70 percent which would result in unreasonable rate increases for you, our customers.

    SAN FRANCISCO, April 19 - Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, chairman emeritus of The New York Times Company, was awarded the Katharine Graham Lifetime Achievement Award on Tuesday by the Newspaper Association of America at its annual meeting here. The award is named for the late publisher of The Washington Post, to whom it was awarded posthumously in 2002. In presenting the award, Gregg K. Jones, chairman of the association, said Mr. Sulzberger deserved recognition for two main reasons: publishing the Pentagon Papers in 1971 and reinvesting in The Times during the financial crises of the 1960's and 1970's. Mr. Sulzberger, 79,...

    ......he was going spend the rest of his life comforting and caring for his beloved...... This is what the jury heard, when Michael Schiavo sought an award of lifetime compensation in the care for his disabled wife, Terri. Very noble. Schiavo was clear. HE was going to do for Terri what HE KNEW, without equivocation, he wanted to provide to Terri. LIFETIME care. There was no issue from the then loving and devoted husband about his wife wanting to die; at least when the goal was winning a jury award. Did he intentionally lie to a jury, in order to...

    WASHINGTON -- Veterans groups are angry at President George W. Bush for supporting a 1995 government decision to rescind an old promise of free lifetime health benefits for military retirees. This is the man who told veterans and active-duty military personnel after the 2000 campaign that he would make sure "promises made to our veterans will be promises kept." So why does he persist in short-changing the retirees, especially when he is preparing for another war and hoping to lure more volunteers for the military? Many World War II and Korean conflict veterans have been hopping mad ever since the...
