Quote of the Day

"Under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act, illegal aliens cannot be turned away for 'emergency' medical treatment. As you probably guessed, these days nearly everything is considered 'emergency' care, from a splinter to a drug overdose, and woe be unto the physician that turns away a patient on 'non-emergency' grounds. The trial lawyers and immigrants' rights groups will be waiting in line to sue."

- Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-Arizona) in "Whatever It Takes"

    John Travolta’s Kiss

    Come on folks. What two males kiss like this? I’d suggest that not even two Arabs greet each other with this sort of male bonding lip lock.

    I’m sure Travolta’s PR machine would spin it off as just a joke, a big hah-hah.

    Travolta’s been rumored to be gender fluid for many years. This picture tells me more than all his denials.

    Travolta kissing a man

    WTF?!?! John Travolta has been dodging the gay rumors for years like fellow Scientologist, Tom Cruise. Poor Kelly. Well, we bet she had an idea of all this anyway. So is this why he has his own plane?

    71 Years Old and Still Rocking

    Came across this news that beloved rock era icon, Jerry Lee Lewis, has a new album set to debut in late September 2006. I read the promo blurb and shook my head in total agreement.

    For Jerry Lee Lewis had quite the colorful life, including marrying a 13-year-old cousin when he was still married to someone else. He’s been known to drink hard and play hard.

    And yet the man was an entertainer and never tried to be anything more. The world did not have to endure the political views of Jerry Lee Lewis and frankly the world would not have cared. He manned his piano, he sang and he rocked.

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Jerry Lee Lewis' hardheaded life of self-destructive recklessness -- filled with drugs, booze, scandal and broken marriages -- didn't seem like it would be the formula for a long career. But "The Killer" is still rocking.

    Just shy of his 71st birthday, Lewis -- who had his first hell-raising hit 49 years ago with "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" -- is releasing his first studio album in more than a decade.

    Lewis’ new album also features many other well-known rock icons, including the Rolling Stones. The Rolling Stones…now here’s a group of musical icons that tend to leave a bad taste in the mouth. The Stones are younger than Lewis and yet give me a choice and I’d choose Jerry Lee Lewis any day over that group ageing drug-riddled has-beens.

    +---- Bizarre Tidbits About Child Actors -----+

    Came across this in an email from a reader. Believe at your own risk.

    Back in the "Golden Age" of TV, situation comedies presented audiences with the image of an ideal Middle Class America. In reality, however, many of the child actors in these "perfect" TV families had less-than-perfect lives offscreen...

    Father Knows Best:

    Billy Gray (who played the son, Bud) spent 45 days in jail on marijuana charges and later dropped out from society. He told TV Guide, "I look back on the show and see it as a lie, a lie that was sold to the American people."

    Lauren Chapin (who played the youngest daughter, Kathy) also had drug troubles. She became addicted to heroin and speed, and did jail time for forging a check.

    The Patty Duke Show:

    From 1963-66, Duke starred in the popular series, but gradually the stress of playing two roles - herself and her look-alike cousin - caught up with her; she became depressed, anorexic and eventually an alcoholic and drug addict.

    The Partridge Family:

    After the show ended, Danny Bonaduce developed drug problems. By age 21, he had squandered $350,000 in savings on his cocaine habit.

    Susan Dey, who was 16 when the show began, later claimed to have suffered from severe anxiety which resulted in anorexia and bulimia.

    The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet:

    Fans of Ricky Nelson were shocked when his autopsy revealed that he had been freebasing cocaine just prior to the plane crash that killed him on Dec. 31, 1984 in DeKalb, Texas.

    Family Affair:

    In 1976, Annissa Jones, who played "Buffy" on the series, was found dead of an overdose after a party in Oceanside, California. The coroner reported that Jones had "the largest combination of drugs in any cases I've encountered”.

    Media Nuggets

    From Freeper Anita at FreeRepublic:

    CBS admits Rush Limbaugh 's blessed with natural charm in political commentary and find it difficult in coaching others is labor-intensive.

    ABC News' - Brian Ross gives a gift wrap to Al Qaeda: ABC News has obtained videotapes of dramatic U.S. government field tests of new methods to thwart terrorist attacks against U.S. embassies abroad.

    The United States of America vs. Bill Keller -> How hard is it to be executive editor of the New York Times today? The White House calls him a traitor. He gets roasted every day on talk shows and blogs. The newsroom is losing faith. The paper is shrinking.

    Be afraid, be very afraid! WH press corps being watched, all the time.

    Joe Wilson is running a subscription-cancellation-campaign against Wash.Post because it wrote, Joe Wilson a liar & Rove deserves apology from magazines & journalists in it's editorials.

    A smear against conservatives blows up in NYTimes' face.

    Fox Broadcast Network holds #1 position in ratings. ABC & CBS steady in second and third place. NBC falls last.

    Barbara Walters’ Talking Dog

    Now I’ve heard “talking” dogs before. So I’ll not poke fun at Barbara Walters’ assertion that her dog told her it loved her.

    These talking dogs that I heard really weren’t talking, mind you. But they were able to mouth a sound, something between a hound dog’s soft howl and a bark, that sounds like human words. I’d suggest these dogs don’t know what they’re saying but someone trained them to do it. One only has to watch the many dog shows on “The Animal Planet” to see such a thing.

    Still, this claim by Baba Wawa has caused giggles across the Pop Culture front so we thought we’d mention it. Heh.

    NEW YORK - Has Barbara Walters lost it?

    Baba WawaSome of her co-hosts on “The View” may think so after her claim today about her Havanese dog Cha-Cha.

    Walters says when she told Cha-Cha she loved her, Cha-Cha said “I love you” back.


    Which superstar classical music soloist has a sex addiction that keeps audiences waiting while he gets his fixes backstage?

  • Yo Yo Ma?
  • Joshua Bell?
  • Andrea Boccelli?
    From: **Janet Charlton BLIND ITEM 9/13**

    This actor enjoys playing wise cracking heroes and cops and his characters are usually quick on the draw. Maybe that affinity for guns has carried over into his private life. The guy was dining alone at the fancy Belvedere restaurant in the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills. Out of the blue he turned to the waiter and said evenly "I need a gun." The waiter gulped and the actor continued "Do you carry a gun? I need to borrow it right now!" The actor seemed agitated and the frightened waiter told him he didn't have a gun. The server reported the conversation to the manager and the manager hastened to calm the actor down. The meal ended without incident, but the servers are still talking about the strange encounter.

  • Bruce Willis?
  • Charlton Heston?

    Heh. Staring At Women’s Breasts Good for Your Health

    Came across this in an email and know now that’s it’s probably a joke. If it’s not a joke then let me make it a joke.

    So staring at a women’s breasts increases blood flow, causes the heart to pump merrily and in general does all kinds of good stuff to a male’s body?

    Well so does jogging or working the treadmill. These activities, in addition to being good for the cardio-vascular system, are also available to females. Staring at ladies’ breasts is not normally a female activity and if we are to believe this “scientist”, the benefits of that activity would benefit only the males in our society.

    Still, I laugh. If this “study” isn’t a joke perpetuated by some guy wanting to make breast-staring a politically-correct thing to do, then someone is trying to fool us while peeing upon our feet and telling us it’s raining.

    So who out here in la-la land is surprised that ageing hippie Willie Nelson is into drugs? Raise your hands.

    State Police seized about 1-1/2 pounds (0.7 kg) of marijuana and two-tenths of a pound (91 grams) of mushrooms from the bus, Williams said
