I am imagining DR Jose in a "basic" Whole Foods, tsk-tsking because there is NOOO in-store smoke-house or wine bar (Ye Gods!!) even though they DO have their own brick pizza oven. Jose is SUCH a foodie!

I just have to say that Jon Stewart is f*****g BRILLIANT! I hope he wins another Peabody award. I just watched (on-line) the Stewart/Cramer smackdown and when I wasn't laughing I was highly impressed at how articulate Stewart was at expressing the anger of the "regular" guy.

I read about this earlier today.  I'm going to watch the re-broadcast tonight at 8:00.

And now, I must leave.  I have a coupon for Borders to get 40% off two DVD "box sets" and I need to find two box sets that I want.  And you have to buy two sets to get the 40% discount.  You can't buy just one. :P We'll see if I get anything.

Until later!

I do indeed! She's going to be playing the Mother Abbess in THE SOUND OF MUSIC in Paris at the Theatre du Chatelet in December. She was trying out ways to say "what is it, Maria, you can't face?"

Congratulations on your win Cilla!  That Gabe is a cutie!

Thanks Vixmom.  I was very excited to learn I will be seeing Gabe tomorrow.  I haven't seen him since August, so it will be great.

In local new:
The jurors report they have verdicts on 85 of the 87 counts against the "Serial Shooter."

I would think 85 death sentences would be enough

There were assorted charges of murders and multiple counts of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault, drive-by shooting, firearms charges, cruelty to animals and arson.

Early on, they were shooting dogs and horses. The police said then they were worried because people who do that usually progress to shooting people. They were right.

Absolutely--I watched that "live" last night in complete and utter awe at Stewart's genius.

I assumed that there were all sorts of counts.  I also assumed he would be convicted, as he should have been.  And you are right, animal cruelty usually progresses to human cruelty - if it isn't happening at the same time. 

I was sort of joking about the 85 death sentences.  Probably not too funny, but I'm assuming he'll get death on the murder counts and as I recall the sentencing code in Arizona he'll definitely be leaving prison in a box.

I guess I should be glad the local CBS affiliate showed ACC basketball all evening so I didn't have to interrupt my work project. Since I watched non-stop, I was able to watch the remaining 12 episodes that I hadn't already watched so I could finish the disc set tonight.

There were also two bonus features on the set (along with the comentaries which I had already listened to).

In the first, the creator and the five lead actors remembered fond stories about making the series. They've all aged very well in the past six years. Of course, Padget Brewster is on CRIMINAL MINDS now. The others, I guess, do guest work. I know I've seen them in various roles over the years.

The other bonus feature was a throwaway segment in which each of the five wondered what the universe would be like IF Andy Richter did indeed control it. And then, what would the universe be if he or she controlled it. Nothing of great interest was generated.

They said he could serve the sentences consecutively. Honestly, we don't want him ever to be out again.

These guys struck late at night to early in the morning. They kept me from going for morning walks. One of their victims was killed a quarter mile from my coffee place.

The trial started in early September. I should think those jurors would want to go on with their lives.

I can't even fathom a trial lasting that long.  Did they go all day or do they still just do afternoons?

There is no way they will get anything other than consecutive sentences.  They won't get out again, I wouldn't worry about that

Some of their victims still have shot pellets (or whatever you call them; I don't know from guns) still embedded in their bodies and will always have physical problems. Not to mention psychological ones. They paralyzed the one who just had a stroke recently.

That's really sad. 

On another sad court case related note, there was a case in federal court here about the butter additive to microwave popcorn and how it made one of the workers at the factoty ill.  The jury deliberated 6 days and awarded nearly 8 million dollars to the plaintiff.  Unfortunately he died the night before the jury returned

Back from judging and then Musso and Frank with the divoon Karen Morrow and Susan Egan.  More in the notes.  I'm eating the most extraordinary caramels I've ever eaten - homemade by AMDA teacher and wonderful B'way performer Jane Lanier.
