THURSDAY--Another Edition of......

A flip of the fedora to Jimmy Cannon:


1) You will not want to miss this week’s Sunday Simcha as we debut the new CD from The Klezmatics commemorating their 25th year together---or from their founding and evolution. A truly wonderful and enjoyable piece of work.

2) Sad to hear of the events in Britain. Civilized response to uncivilized people who have not a cause, other than looting, is a difficult thing. A cause has a purpose—in this case real bullets might also—would the Brits were a bit more realistic.

3) It does take a certain amount of talent to be as bland as Alex Treback---and it really pays a handsome salary---a lot more than the prizes on Jeopardy. Great show that should last forever---as opposed to the inanity of the “yahoos” (ala Reality TV) on Wheel of Fortune.

4) Reality TV is the sad state that original 7 or so outlets that have evolved into. hundreds of more outlets---worse content. Some kind of ratio there.

5) Frankly, Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.---Words to live by.

6) More words to live by are those that say it is better to have a good doctor than a friendly one---but if he or she is both---all the better.  Lucky me on at least 2 counts.
