A Blast from the Past

It's so weird that in 2005 I started a blog that only lasted about a month and a half, but it was my attempt to get my opinion heard. My short attention span soon took the best of me and I forgot all about it.

Until now.

Who would have known I would soon have my own radio show where I could actually tell the world what's on my mind every day? Or my own radio station where I could help other express their opinions, too?

It shows you that we always must believe in the future and make it happen the way we would like it to be.

Paris Hilton: A New Catfight

1.5.06 - Our favorite hot, rich bimbo is in the headlines again. This time she is being accused of smearing the name of another rich bitch, a former girlfriend of Paris Hilton's ex-boyfriend, and sued for $10 million.

As reported by, "...suit pits the hotel heiress-actress against diamond heiress-actress Zeta Graff, who is seeking at least $10 million in damages for Hilton's comments in a July New York Post story."

The Post reported that Graff went "berserk" at the nightclub, tried to strangle Hilton and attempted to steal her diamond necklace.

Graff denies the report and claims Hilton said "I'm going to destroy you" after trying to oust her from the club, according to the suit.

Is this the most awesome catfight we have seen in a long time or what? I'd love to see these two blondes take each other on in the ring, rolling in the mud and ripping up each other's clothes.

You go, Paris!

Announcing the New Howard Stern Message Board

12.23.05 - I just wanted to announce my new Howard Stern message board. It has been up for about a week and a half and we already have a good number of members, many of them posting some interesting messages.

The ad-free bulletin board offers various other topics as well.

Talk about Angelina Jolie and Jessica Simpson in the Hollywood and Celebrity gossip, discuss computer hardware and software, video games and politics. Post and read explicit messages in the new Sex Talk section and, of course, discuss the Howard Stern Show.

Visit The Post and join the fun!

New York City Strike: Urban Terrorism

12.20.05 - The New York City Public Transit strike reminds us once again how much power labor unions are yielding today. The strike, declared illegal by a New York judge, has virtually paralyzed the city, forcing workers to walk or find more expensive means of transportation.

Strikes are blackmail. Period.

Like terrorists, or kidnappers, strikers insist on holding the public hostage until their demands are met.

This is no way to negotiate. Simply put, if you don't like your job or your pay—leave!

Unions serve no purpose today other than to milk government agencies and big corporations out of every penny they can get. The ones who suffer the most from these strikes are the public, who are bystanders to the dispute.

We need labor reform and we need it now. Strikes should be illegal and striking workers should face immediate termination if they break the law.

Barbara Walters: Has She Gone Too Far?

12.20.05 - In a move that will likely call to question her credibility, Barbara Walters has prepared a two-hour special entitled "Heaven: Where Is It? How Do We Get There?"

Her special will include questions such as "Is there sex in heaven?" and "Would you like me to go to hell?"

Has Walters sunk to a new low to get ratings? You bet your ass. What kind of a topic is this from a reporter who claims to be reliable and accruate?

Is this journalism? This is comedy. What's next: "In Search of Santa Claus"?

Give me a break.

Howard Stern: The End of An Era

12.15.05 - It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to the Howard Stern Show. At least in its current format, which has persisted successfully for over 20 years.

In an increasingly emotional week, the self-proclaimed King of All Media has delivered some of his best radio by inviting a slew of great guests to his morning program.

Howard has given millions a reason to get up in the morning and a way to help them get through their morning drive. His sharp wit, wild intellect,and unique sense of humor have attracted his dedicated listeners to his daily show, often calling in with off-the-wall remarks and juvenile humor.

Tomorrow, December 16, will be Stern's last day on Infinity radio and he plans a big New York party for his fans, including a wild rally in the streets of the Big Apple, rain or come shine.

I personally have grown a strong attachment to Howard's radio program. He has kept me laughing and influenced me in many ways. Sometimes he feels like a friend that I can't talk back to. I like the fact that he is just a normal, albeit filthy rich, person in his real life and I find I relate to many of his experiences and tribulations.

The bright side to all this is that Howard Stern is taking his show to the next level by moving to Sirius Satellite Radio, where he promises to make his show the riot he has always dreamed it to be. It matters little that it'll cost me $12 a month for the pleasure (not to mention the couple of hundred I spent on hardware.)

I'm staying with Howard as long as he is still around to brighten my day.

I love you, Howard Stern.

Chat Rooms: The Devil's New Playground

12.13.05 - If you have visited a chat room on the Internet at least once and happened to waltz into the wrong place, you probably learned what it is like to stare evil in the face.

I'm talking about getting "flamed," the situation where dozens of posters gang up on you and take out all of their lives' frustrations on an unsuspecting passerby.

It's easy to do, because it involves no consequences. People hide behind their screen names and their monitors and spew hatred and hostility like there is no tomorrow.

The point is, you find yourself confronting people with whom you would never, ever associate in the real world. Cyberspace can make you do stupid things like waste your time arguing with children and low-lifes that are essentially recluses with no social life to speak of, and who are largely illiterate.

I was flabbergasted at the sheer anger, cynicism and hostility I had witnessed recently at such a forum. Not to mention the endless time those people wasted on senselessness. For the most part, they talked about nothing and felt they were making the world a better place.

Is this a reflection on our society at large? I think not. We'd like to think we have more to offer as a people of the most powerful nation in the world—but beware the dark corners of the Web, because you never know when pure evil will rear its disgusting head. And you may just turn out to be the meal it hungers for.

Happy surfing!

Iran: Move Israel to Europe

12.8.05 - In what may be the most ludicrous anti-Israel sentiment yet, Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today suggested that the state of Israel be moved to Europe!

Of course, he used to opportunity to also express his doubt that the Holocaust ever happened.

This follows the already familiar call to wipe Israel off the map, a sentiment familiar to Middle-East watchers. But, the wise president added that, “Although we don’t accept this claim [that Hitler killed millions of innocent Jews in furnaces,] if we suppose it is true, our question for the Europeans is: is the killing of innocent Jewish people by Hitler the reason for their support to the occupiers of Jerusalem?”

He summed up his feelings by pleading, “If the Europeans are honest they should give some of their provinces in Europe -- like in Germany, Austria or other countries -- to the Zionists and the Zionists can establish their state in Europe. You offer part of Europe and we will support it.”

Anti-Semitists keep outdoing themselves and pushing the envelope at how far they will go in their hatred of Jews. This hatred is unlike any ever witnessed in history. Think of the conflicts of WWII, with Japan and Germany spewing propanda against the West, vowing to destroy the enemy. Now we are all best friends.

This has happened repeatedly in history—except with the Jews. This hatred has persisted through the centuries and has stayed consistent among the various nations of the world.

Anti-Semitism is a unique hatred and will never go away. It'll just keep growing in its outrageousness.

Bush: He Is Still Learning

12.7.05 - Without even realizing it, President Bush today revealed what little consideration his administration had given to the Iraq war's outcome before he decided to invade that country.

In his speech, the President said the following: "Over the course of this war, we have learned that winning the battle for Iraqi cities is only the first step...we also have to win the battle after the battle by helping Iraqis consolidate their gains and keep the terrorists from returning."

The problem with this statement is "Over the course of this war..." You mean to tell us, Mr. President, that you had to learn about the lingering fighting AFTER you had launched the war? Why didn't we learn this BEFORE we ever sent thousands of our troops to die there for an indefinite period of time?

Should we not have known that the battle would continue for years and planned for it prior to commiting ourselves to this unwinnable war? Shouldn't Bush have told the American people he still had to learn some lessons and make plans while the war would be going on?

If he had, and the American people had been told the President did not know the implications of his invasion, the people's support for his war would not have been as substantial as it was.

Will someone please make this man go away?

Society: An Internet 'Red Light District'?

12.2.05 - Some people and organizations are proposing the addition of ".xxx" domain to the names of pornographic Websites. They envision an Internet where adult sites are relegated to a "Red Light District", which will make it both easier to find and easier to block from underage surfers.

Of course, there are those who oppose it, citing the prolifiration of porn on the Web and warning that such a move will promote illicit material—as if porn needs any help being promoted.

The proposal is being made by Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the organization entrusted by the U.S. government with managing Internet domain names. The opposition is, of course, from the conservative camp—the one that has already made our world a much safer place to live by dictating to us what is good for us and what is not.

As reports, "Critics such as the Family Research Council, a conservative U.S.-based religious group, complain that creating the .xxx domain would only legitimize the porn industry, and not make it easier to avoid sexual content on the Web."

Does it not make sense to group all sex sites under one domain in order to turn the Internet into a safer place for all? With porn lurking everywhere on the Web and bombarding our children with explicit images—often through misleading links and relentless pop-up windows—segregating hardcore from the mainstream Internet is an intelligent decision.

We must stop bowing to the religious right and allowing them to delve into our lives, censoring everything they do not like and determining what we can or cannot watch, read and listen to. The freedom of speech guaranteed us by the U.S. Founding Fathers must be preserved at all cost.
Conservatives must not be allowed to hinder our technological and social progress.

We must do whatever is necessary to maintain a "Live and Let Live" lifestyle and philosophy.
Anything less would undermine the essence of the American Way.

Crime: Protect Our Children!

12.1.05 - A convicted child molester was arrested yersterday in a Los Angeles suburb after assaulting a 7-year-old girl in October and a 6-year-old girl in 2001. This monster had already served time in prison for snatching and raping a teenage girl several years ago. He was picked up at his 95-year-old mother's house, a couple of blocks away from a middle school.

What is wrong with our justice system? It seems that justice only applies to perpetrators—not to potential victims.

Molesting children is a serious disease for which there is no known cure. When a sicko acts on his urges to commit one of society's greatest taboos he is clearly out of control.

What business do we have releasing such mostrosity into our free society again? Did you know that landlords cannot deny housing to known sex offenders, due to questionable laws that seek to protect these animals? What about the rights of the other tenants and neighbors who are faced with exposing their children to this grave danger?

To those who claim that criminals should be given the opportunity to rehabilitate, I say: tell that to the girls who have forever lost their innocence and whose lives had been shattered.

You do not allow a wolf to get near innocent sheep. It doesn't work.

These crimes are allowed to continue and our children continue to be threatened. We must take action to keep child predators in prison, castarate them, then throw away the key.

Evil cannot be tamed. Nor can it be rehabilitated.

Sex: Heidi Fleiss Wants to Cater to Female Johns

11.30.05 - Heidi Fleiss, the notorious "Hollywood Madame," announced that she is going to open a Nevada whorehouse that serves...women. Dubbing her new enterprise "The Stud Farm," Fleiss plans to provide female customers with male whores to serve the women's special needs.

Does anyone believe that the Stud Farm's customer will be female? How many women do you know who will actually pay for anonymous sex? They could get all the sex they want for free! True, some unattractive, old women may find the concept appealing, I doubt the Fleiss' new endeavor will generate enough profit to survive.

Unless you consider who the real customers are going to be. The same ones who purchase Playgirl magazine for its images of studs:
Men. Gay men.

So, if you're a man who considers joining Heidi Fleiss' stable of man-whores, don't have any illusions of servicing women and getting paid for it.

Think man-ass.

Tired News: Jessica Simpson & Hubby in Splitsville

11.28.05 - The media is all over this one: Jessica Simpson and her husband of three years Nick Lachey have finally confirmed they are calling it quits.

The big question is: Who cares?!

Would we even hear about them had Jessica Simpson not been such a hot piece of ass?

Our society's obsession with celebrities does not discriminate: as long as people are pretty, rich, and famous, we drool over them. Even if we are not sure what exactly they are famous for.

At Work: The Buying Frenzy Continues

11.28.05 - After a crazy "Black Friday" when shoppers went out in full force to buy up the entire United States, many of them plan to continue their shopping spree—at work!

Today is marked, God knows by whom, as "Cyber Monday," the busiest online shopping day of the year. According to, millions of workers plan to spend part of their day doing their shopping during their working hours.

Poor employers. They will be paying for their employees to go shopping.

It is amazing how much Chutzpah workers have shown since the Internet has become mainstream. We already know that employees waste part of their day surfing the Net, but now they actually allocate their time in advance to allow them to do their shopping.

Is the Internet a time-waster? You had better believe it. I believe productivity has gone way done in the workplace as workers spend more time on personal Net surfing. True, some work-related Internet access actually improves productivity by speeding up research and communication. But when employees use their work hours to send personal email, chat on Instant Messenger, and shop online, I think we are looking at a major breakdown at the workplace.

Are you one of those workers who will be using their employer's fast internet connections to do your holiday shopping?

Shopping: Ridiculous Consumersim

11.26.05 - On the heels of the rush to snap up the new Xbox 360, U.S. shoppers swarmed retail stores at dawn this morning on what has come to be known as "Black Friday," the busiest shopping day of the year.

The ritual repeats every year: retailers and economists worrying that sales will be disappointing, while shoppers quickly drive up their credit card balances, buying anything they can lay their hands on.

This ridiculous race to be the first to grab the great deals may not be such a strange phenomenon in a capitalistic society such as the United States, but that it sometimes turns into violence is disconcerting.

In an Orlando, Florida, Wal-Mart store this morning, people got into an altercation in the quest to land a notebook computer. Similar stories are certain to unfold throughout the day. It's the same every year.

The urge to spend money and to acquire more junk is a curious act. Are our lives so empty that we need to fill them with things? Has spending time with ourselves and our families become so mundane that we have to look for stimulation at the neighborhood mall?

I'm all for free economy and the freedom of choice, but it's ridiculous to get up at 5:00 in the morning to be the first one in line at the Sears store. Those sales aren't going to go away. As desperate as retailers are in competing with each other to bring in shoppers, they are always offering great bargains. The merchandise and the good prices aren't going to go away.

So save yourself the aggravation and stay out of the scuffles. The time to go shopping is when everyone else isn't. You're more likelly to find what you're looking for at a good price when you're not in a crowd of hungry spenders.

Happy shopping!

XBox 360: Here We Go Again...

11.22.05 - A new game console just hit the market, creating a familiar scene: stores staying open late, people waiting in line for 20 hours or more, products disappearing off shelves and retailers running out of stock shortly thereafter.

Haven't we seen this all before (Sony's PSP, Harry Potter books, Furbys, Star Wars movies, Elmo Dolls, Cabbage Patch Dolls)? What is it that makes people brave cold weather and huge crowds to spend several hundred dollars in the quest to be the first to own something?

I don't pretend to know the answer; I can only speculate. In this land of abundance, though, it is hard to fathom that people cannot wait several days to purchase some new toy. I mean, these crowd scenes are reminiscent of the rush for food and medicine we see in tragedy-stricken areas helped by the Red Cross.

Are we ever going to put things in perspective?

World: Governing by Astrology?

11.21.05 - The following item appeared on today:

Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra has said he will not answer reporters' questions until next year because the alignment of the planets is not in his favor.
"Right now Mercury ... is in a corner perfectly aligned with my star. Mercury is no good, so if it's not good, I am going to request not to speak. I'll just wait until next year to talk," Thaksin told reporters...

Is this dude for real? How can you run a government like this? The moon of Jupiter is aligned with Saturn: Let's go to war. Pluto's alignment with Mars is inexact: Let's raise taxes.

He probably tells his wife, "Not tonight, honey. Neptune is out of whack this month."

Let's hope the dude is not developing WMDs in his backyard, or we are all toast.

Radio: Howard Stern - Will He Drive Up Sirius Stock?

11.21.05 - Unless you have been living under a rock, you must have heard by now that shock jock Howard Stern is leaving terrestrial radio to start a new era in satellite radio. Stern's show promises to be raunchier and more salacious than his current show on Infinity Radio. Howard has said he is looking forward to the day when he can express himself freely and not be bogged down and silenced by the prospect of stiff fines imposed by the Federal Communication Commission.

Although Stern is expected to lose some listeners following his move to a pay service, he still stands to bring millions of loyal fans with him to Sirius Satllelite Radio. The number of listeners who will follow Stern to his new home remains to be seen but is likely to be high—since his show will be broadcast to every radio market in the U.S.

Will Howard Stern's move to Sirius help drive the company's stock price higher? Obviously, Sirius thinks so, for it agreed to pay its popular new radio personality the unprecedented sum of $500 million for the next 5 years.

Sirius's subscriptions will certainly climb as Stern establishes himself as the new de facto standard in pay radio. If the recent trend continues, Sirius Satellite Radio will likely see its market share growing and possibly surpassing that of the current industry leader, XM Satellite Radio.

I believe that Howard Stern will indeed change the face of radio, with reverberations of his move already felt throughout the industry. Radio stations across the U.S. are already announcing new hosts for their radio shows, with some going as far as changing their programming formats or adding the words "Free Radio" to their names. Such responses clearly point to the threat perceived by traditional radio operator due to Stern's move.

The profound impact a single person can make on an entire industry will also likely affect Sirius' bottom line. I, for one, am going to invest in Sirius stock. I trust Howard to deliver the best radio he has ever presented to his fans, and to directly improve the fortunes of his new employer.

I know what it's like to be an avid fan of Howard Stern. I am one. And I'll pay whatever it costs to continue being entertained by Howard every morning.

See you January 9th, Howard.

Bad Drivers: Stupid or Selfish?

11.21.05 - Do drivers not realize they are operating a lethal weapon? Driving a car is like riding a killer missile. You have the potential to cause a lot of damage and destruction.

Otherwise, how do you explain the carelessness many drivers exercise while driving their cars about town?

When drivers put other drivers at risk by carelessly switching lanes, pulling out of a side street or a parking lot, or being caught up in a cell-phone conversation, they do so either because they are too stupid to realize how dangerous their actions are or because they adopt the attitude of "me first, the hell with everyone else"—leaving other drivers the responsibility of avoiding an accident.

Driving LA streets and busy freeways, I often get stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic because of some car crash that blocks several lanes—likely due to the disregard with which drivers treat each other.

Enough is enough. Let's treat our cars, our roads, and other drivers with the respect they deserve. Being stupid or selfish is not a luxury we can afford; Innocent lives are at stake.

Smoking: The Assault Continues

11.18.05 - As if the campaign to drive cigarette smokers to the fringe weren't enough, now 32 Attorney Generals are asking movie studios to add anti-smoking messages to upcoming DVD releases featuring smoking in repsonse to new research showing that movie actors' smoking spurs youth to light up.

Does this remind you of another case in which some people blame society's ills on pop culture? How about those who claim, with no solid evidence, that playing violent video games leads youngsters to commit violent crimes?

This is another attempt by a self-righteous few to dictate what we should and shouldn't do. Smoking in movies is not glamourized; it is used to portray a character. Youth imitate many behaviors they see in film and on TV. Does that mean we should let that affect scripts and screenplays and limit writers' imagination?

We don't need warning labels on every product we consume. We need common sense and an open mind.

PC Games: F.E.A.R. - Be Afraid!

11.18.05 - One of the most awaited computer games this year is making a lot of eager gamers mad. Unfortunately, I am one of them.

Before I get into the details, let me warn you: being a computer-game fan can be hazardous to your health. You spend serious money on hardware and software, gambling that things will work smoothly, only to discover you are stuck with a useless, defective product that you cannot even return for a refund (retailers won't take back opened software.) You're a loser even before you take the plunge.

Since I bought a copy of F.E.A.R., I barely had a chance to enjoy it. After I successfully installed it, I enjoyed playing game on my fast new computer, with the top-of-the-line video card, the NVidia 7800GTX. Then, without warning, the game started stuttering and gameplay became choppy, rendering the game unplayable. I have spent days, literally, replacing my video card, installing a new power supply, updating drivers, talking to the hardware's tech support—but the problem persisted.

After reinstalling Windows, I attempted to reinstall the game. Then the frustration really started: the game would not to install! Repeatedly generating indecipherable error messages, the game refused to complete its installation. I spent hours trying to figure out the problem—to no avail.

The game's tech support site and user forums proved useless, offering solutions that didn't work to scores of frustrated gamers. More hours wasted only to hit a brick wall.

I spent hundreds of dollars for a new computer, and countless hours trying to solve these problems, just to play one lousy game. And after all that, I still cannot play it!

Do I feel helpless? No, I feel impotent. I feel like screaming.

The next time you plan to invest your money, time and effort in a computer game, remember you do so at your own risk. Ask yourself: Is it worth it?

Movies: Steven Spielberg's 'Munich'

11.17.05 - During the 1972 Olympic Games held in Munich, Germany, gunmen of the terrorist group "Black September" raided the Olympic Village, taking the Israeli Olympic team hostage—and eventually murdering eleven atheletes.

Whilte the German police managed to kill all the terrorists, the games continued the following day! After all, Jewish blood had been spilled for centuries and there was no reason to make a fuss and disrupt such an important world event.
Israel, of course, was not going to sit back and take it. The surviving Israeli atheletes returned home the next day, and plans began in finding and killing the masterminds behind the murders.

Golda Meir, then the Prime Minister of Israel, put together a team of Mossad agents that would hunt down and assassinate the PLO terrorist responsible for the slaughter. Now, Steven Spielberg, the director who brought us the unforgettable "Schindler's List," has documented the clandestine operation that spanned Europe and the Middle East and resulted in the elimination of several dangerous Palestinian figures.

Munich, to released December 23, follows the historical tale of the agents that tracked down those responsible for the murders. Starring Eric Bana (Black Hawk Down, The Incredible Hulk), the film promises to offer a generous dose of drama and international intrigue of the true story, which reads like a Robert Ludlum thriller.

When I first heard of the upcoming film, I recalled reading a book entitled "Vengeance", sometime in the 1970s, that told the story from a first person's point of view—that of the leader of the counter-terrorist team. The book, I recently discovered, was just re-released in time for the movie's opening. The new edition's cover boasts, "The book that inspired Steven Spielberg's Munich."

It was one of the most memorable books I have ever read.

Aeon Flux: Charlize Theron's Latest Film

11.17.05 - One of the most exciting upcoming film for sci-fi fans this holiday season is Aeon Flux. Scheduled for release December 2, this slick-looking movie may just reach Matrix proportions.

AeonFlux, based on an MTV animated series by the same name and featuring Charlize Theron looking hotter than ever, is set 400 years in the future. Theron's title character is a top underground operative at war with the totalitarian regime governing what appears to be a perfect society. Aeon Flux leads a rebellion that will reveal a world of secrets.

The trailers for the movie look promising. Let's hope we are not let down again by a movie we hold high hopes for that winds up disappointingly lame.

If nothing else, at least this movie looks cool.

Net Surfing: Lose the 'Back' Button

11.17.05 - Your browser's "BACK" button is probably the most used part of the program when you are surfing the Net. And it is also the most frustrating.

If you find yourself waiting for a page to reload everytime you click the "BACK" button, you may want to consider the following tip: When clicking a link on a Web page, use the RIGHT mouse button and select "Open in New Window" from the context menu. This will keep the current page open on the screen. When you're done reading the linked page, simply close that window and you'll be back in your previous window without having to wait for it to load.

In addition to saving you time, this method of surfing will also keep you from losing track of where you you have been. I wouldn't surf any other way.

Bush: This Is A Two-Term President?

11.16.05 - The election of George Bush for a second term to the most important office in the world remains the greatest mystery of this young century. How did he manage that achievement? This man can't even talk. Listen to some of the things he says:

"If it were to rain a lot, there is concern from the Army Corps of Engineers that the levees might break. And so, therefore, we're cautious about encouraging people to return at this moment of history."—Washington, D.C., Sept. 19, 2005

"I think younger workers—first of all, younger workers have been promised benefits the government—promises that have been promised, benefits that we can't keep. That's just the way it is."—Washington, D.C., May 4, 2005

"Anyway, I'm so thankful, and so gracious—I'm gracious that my brother Jeb is concerned about the hemisphere as well."—Miami, Fla., June 4, 2001

Compared to other two-term Presidents—FDR, Reagan, Washington to name a few—is he even in the same league? You've got to be kidding.

Islam: Can We Get Some Answers Here?

11.16.05 - In light of the recent violence outbreaks in France and the hotel bombings in Jordan, we are reminded again who instigates the majority of unrest and violence around the world. How long are we going to ignore the fact that Islam wants to see us all dead? Is it just fanatics? Don't be fooled by the dismissive claims that all this hatred is instigated by a few radicals.

In recent article in the LA Times, Commentator Dennis Prager presented the following five questions to Muslims that the West has yet to hear answers for. If the majority of Muslims are such peace-loving, compassionate individuals, then:

  • Why are you so quiet?
  • Why are none of the Palestinian terrorists Christian?
  • Why is only one of the 47 Muslim-majority countries a free country?
  • Why are so many atrocities committed and threatened by Muslims in the name of Islam?
  • Why do countries governed by religious Muslims persecute other religions?

It is about time we got some straight answers to these sticky questions. Until then we must conclude that Islam is at the root of the rampant violence today.

Anna Nicole: It Gets Worse.

11.16.05 - MSNBC reported back in September:

Smith’s attorney, Kent Richland, told justices that Marshall’s son “devotes nearly half his brief to manipulating the record to cast (Vickie) in a bad light.” Richland said that J. Howard Marshall intended to provide for his wife throughout her life.

Nobody could cast Anna Nicole Smith in a worse light than she can do for herself. This photo says everything.

Celebrities: The New Anna Nicole Smith

11.16.05 - Are these photos of the same woman? What a transformation. What's amazing is she doesn't look so stupid when she is thin and hot. After being embarrassed on the Howard Stern Show a couple of years ago, Anna Nicole Smith went on the TrimSpa diet and restored her once perfect figure.

You may recall what a fool Anna Nicole made of herself during her short-lived reality show on E! Fat and obviously high on something, she slurred her words and seemed to exist on another plane altogether. You couldn't help but feel sorry for her teenage son who always looked stunned and bewildered by his famous mom.

After losing her court case in claiming the fortune of her 89-year-old deceased husband, in September Smith took her appeal all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court! If she wins, she stands to be awarded an $88.6 million fortune.

Stupid? I don't think so. Dumb, maybe. But not stupid.

News: "Cool Mom" Throws Sex Parties

11.15.05 - The following story appeared on today:

A woman who authorities said had sex with high school boys during alcohol- and drug-fueled parties has been sentenced to 30 years in prison, officials said. Silvia Johnson, 41, described herself to investigators as a "cool mom" who "was never popular with classmates in high school" and who was beginning to feel like one of the group.

What's wrong with this picture? Nothing. The woman is an ugly old bitch who'll spread for anyone who'll make her feel desired. But 30 years in prison?! That's a bit steep, wouldn't you say?

Unless you consider the trauma that seeing this bitch naked is going to cause these high-school boys for years to come. Cool mom, indeed.

Cool Blog: Debbie Schlussel - Smart and Sexy

11.15.05 - Politics from a hot-looking, smart Jewish attorney? Debbie Schlussel finds scoops where others don't even bother looking. Her honest, hard-hitting opinion pieces hit home as she takes on liberals and conservatives alike, Islamists and everyone else who tries to get away with shit.

Oh, yeah, and she's also a regular on the Howard Stern Show. I LOVE when she calls in. Debbie doesn't take all the fun Howard and the gang make of her too seriously and she always has something to say. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll ever see her get naked on the show.

We'll just have to use our imagination, Debbie.

Movies: Seen Any Good Films Lately?

11.15.05 - Probably not. The year 2005 has offered not even one film worth talking about. Hollywood wonders why box office receipts are way down, never considering that perhaps their movies suck. These execs blame TV, DVDs, the Internet and other factors in moviegoer decline, but the reality is simply that there is nothing to see.

I used to go to the movies at least once a week for years. This year, alas, I probably haven't seen more than five films. And I'd be hard pressed to recall which ones (the last one, I'm embarrassed to say, was "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo." Don't hold that one against me; I just wanted to get a glimpse of Amsterdam...)
