Things I Know

  • Marty Ingles suggested that his wife, actress Shirley Jones of Partridge Family fame, ought to pose naked for Playboy.  Shirley Jones is 75.  Well, he got her name all over the media and he was once a comedian.

  • I’ve been objecting for years to the practice of using the word “like” instead of using a comma, or just pausing.  I went to one Ivy League University for less time than it takes to graduate.  Our first lady, Michelle Obama went to two Ivy League Universities and graduated from both.  Michelle Obama uses the word “like” that way.  If it’s okay for the first lady, I guess we’ve lost that battle and I’ll shut up about it.

  • If you’re a TV reporter who has to do live updates over a period of hours from a place where nothing is happening, that’s got to be more boring to do than it is to watch.  And it is boring to watch.

  • Last week, on Tuesday, I heard a radio replay of a call in Monday night’s Mets game.  The play-by-play announcer said the Mets had back-to-back two-run homers.  That’s impossible!

  • You can’t work or laugh your ass off.

  1. If you think live updates from a place where nothing is happening is boring, consider “live concert coverage” on a radio station. No, live concert coverage has nothing to do with broadcasting the concert, which would at least provide some music. Rather, it is coverage of the concert itself. If there is anything more predictable than “nothing it happening,” it is “The audience is in their seats. The band has gone on stage. Now they’re PLAYING MUSIC! They’ve stopped. The audience is leaving.” This “coverage” often lasts for hours.
