Bernie and Dave debate parking
BERNIE AND I DEBATE PARKING

I had totally forgotten this until I saw the video, but: Back in 1991 I hosted some kind of dinner for freshman congresspersons, sponsored by the Washington Press Club. As I vaguely recall, I was instructed to poke gentle fun at the congresspersons in my introductions, then ask them each a joke question, which they were free to respond to or ignore in their remarks. The first person I introduced, as it happened, was Bernie Sanders. Somehow this ended up on YouTube. Here's the video. I have no excuse for my hair.

Anyway you slice it, doesn't a six-blade razor feel excessive?

Anyway you slice it, doesn't a six-blade razor feel excessive?

"The razor-technology race shows no signs of slowing. I bet an urgent memo has already gone out in Gillette's marketing department. "Hold some focus groups immediately!" it says. "Find out what number comes after four!" And who knows what lies ahead? Razors with ten blades? Twenty blades? A thousand blades? Razors that go backward in time and shave your ancestors? Exciting times lie ahead, shaving consumers! We should all grow beards."

Tickets for semifinal safely secured, now where's the beer? - Sports - MiamiHerald.com
CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- The other night at about 11 p.m. I put a sizable wad of cash in my pocket and went out onto the streets of Cape Town. According to all the South Africa guidebooks, this is a very stupid thing to do, but I was on an international mission: I was going to meet an Israeli guy named Amit, whom I had been referred to by a Miami guy known as ``Motor,'' who told me that Amit could sell me tickets to the semifinal game between Holland and Uruguay.

People often become deranged by pets. Derangement is the only possible explanation for owning a cat, an animal whose preferred mode of communication is to sink its claws three-quarters of an inch into your flesh. God help the cat owner who runs out of food. It's not uncommon to see an elderly woman sprinting through the super-market with one or more cats clinging, leech-like, to her leg as she tries desperately to reach the pet-food section before collapsing from blood loss.

Happy Thanksgiving!
You know how scientists claim that global warming is causing the oceans to rise, and if something isn't done, eventually North America will be covered by water as far inland as Mason City, Iowa, the result being that -- among other disasters -- the nations entire pig population could be stung to death by jellyfish? Well, what if the real problem is NOT that the oceans are rising? What if, in fact, the continents are sinking under the weight of fruitcakes, which are the densest objects on earth, other than professional wrestling fans?
