If you want to run for Congress in New York, next year, you should probably declare by next month at the latest, in other words, a month before this year’s election. Why? Because nominating petitions go out in March and party primaries are in June. So, the Presidency is no longer the only office you have to start campaigning for prior to the year you hope to be elected.
If you’re 45 minutes late when you call to tell me you’re going to be late, I already know that.
Just one guy’s opinion, but if I had Mavis Staples on my new TV show (and I don’t have her on and don’t have a new TV show or an old one either) I wouldn’t put her on as a cameo and last. I could certainly have her close the show, but if I did that it would be as a featured act and she would get billing.
I enjoyed Stephen Colbert on Comedy Central’s Colbert Report. I thought the first two nights of his new Late Show on CBS were kind of shaky though. Too much of what was supposed to be funny wasn’t funny to me. That’s to be expected. I think I’ll give him a couple of weeks to settle in before I watch again.
If you answer the phone after one or two rings and nobody is there, it’s a robocaller that guessed wrong on how long it would take you to get to the phone. When that happens, my warped mind thinks they’re selling quiet. Since I used to be on the radio, I don’t want any dead air. My sister is a librarian. They should call her. Librarians can always use a little more silence.
