Program Note

Program Note:

I will be taking a semi-vacation this week (I've got to get caught up on some behind-the-scenes stuff here at, and will be running older columns until Thursday. I will not be posting them to the Huffington Post, so the only place you'll be able to see them is here.

The good news is that live columns will return on Friday, since I couldn't very well skip two straight weeks of the Friday Talking Points. So rest assured, FTP will return this week.

But for the next four days, I've picked columns that I feel are relevant and interesting and worth re-reading (if you've read them before) or reading for the first time (if you haven't seen them before). Two of these will be "prediction" columns, where I previously made crystal-ball predictions, to update how I'm doing at the prognostication business. The other two columns are issues which are as relevant today as when they were posted.

In any case, enjoy the brief trip down memory lane. I apologize for the "summer re-runs," and I hope people aren't too disappointed.

    Well, I am going to take advantage of the teacher being out of the classroom to share an email that my son sent me. :D

    Normally, I NEVER, EVER share emails with anyone, but my son gave me permission...

    Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, almost exactly 60 years ago, witnesses claim that an unidentified flying object (UFO) with five aliens aboard crashed onto a sheep and cattle ranch just outside Roswell , New Mexico . This is a well-known incident that many say has long been covered up by the U.S. Air Force and other federal Agencies and organizations.

    However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of March 1948, nine months after that historic day, the following people were born:

    Albert A. Gore, Jr.

    Hillary Rodham

    John F. Kerry

    William J. Clinton

    Howard Dean

    Nancy Pelosi

    Dianne Feinstein

    Charles E. Schumer

    Barbara Boxer

    See what happens when aliens breed with sheep? The quality of the herd goes straight to Hell. I certainly hope this bit of information clears up a lot of things for you. It did for me.

    Michale -

    While you're right about Al Gore, Bill Clinton was born 8/46, Hillary 10/47, Kerry 12/43, Dean 11/48, Pelosi 3/40, Feinstein 6/33, Boxer 11/40, and Schumer 11/50.

    Nice try.

    So while you could indeed make a case that Al Gore is an alien (an episode of the Simpsons also concurs with you on this... ahem), you simply can't make the same case for the others.

    You may think it's time for the mice to play, but the cat's never away at this site. It's right up there on the banner!
