Do the best you can, and don't take life too serious - Will Rogers

[COMMENT]Can anyone honestly make heads or tails of what is going on in the news? I can't remember a time where things were so weird. I can't imagine this Syria thing is really gonna happen, I don't think they have the votes in Congress. I think there is soo much going on behind the scenes and most of it is all secret and covert operations going back to Libya. Everyone in radio this week covered everything great, especially Hugh Hewitt. It was really one of those weeks where you wanted to turn on the radio to hear whatever new news there was. Regardless of the sarin gassing in Syria, I don't think we should have anything to do with "punishing them" and of course it's just unimaginably horrible. I think if you want to see a whole bunch of young Americans going to war again, which is what I think would happen, we should never even consider this. It's not our neighborhood and the Russian's created this problem in Syria. Every bullet has Russia's name etched on it. And Iran is a huge player in the region. From day one I didn't think Obama would actually do anything. I think he might actually try to get a vote in Congress, have the republicans to vote it down and blame them. I have no faith in any of these jerks anymore. Even John McCain, who I voted for was seen playing poker on his iPhone during the Syria hearings, pathetic. I don't think the American people are told nor have a clue what's really happening in this government behind the scenes.

Sun Broadcast Group has announced the launch of the Marilu Henner show, which will focus on entertainment and lifestyle. Henner's 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. weekday talk program, which launches Monday, will be non-political and non-controversial. 

Danny Bennett interviewed by [Alec Baldwin] on his show "Here's the Thing"
He talks about the thirty years he’s spent managing the career of his dad, [Tony Bennett]. As Danny says, “I don’t just handle a career, I manage a legacy.”

[Mark Thompson] sitting in for Conway had comedian [Fred Stoller] on. He has a book out called Maybe We'll Have You Back: The Life of a Perennial TV Guest Star. I have always thought Fred was a bit peculiar, but a funny guy. He tells some great stories about getting jobs in Hollywood. Worth a tumble.

Soon an interview with actress with [Jennifer Tilly] on Mark's podcast

This is a really great article. More and more I am hearing and seeing people write and talk about this. It's the future of radio.

A frequent caller to [Hugh Hewitt's] show is [Yoni]. He has served Israel as a master sniper and a member of one of her anti terrorist units. When he left this unit he was second in command of this all-volunteer, special operations unit. He has a great blog. He's on Middle East Radio Forum weekly.

Also a very important week on Hugh's show, he has transcribed most of his interviews on the Syria topic and they are up on his website for free, invaluable resource.

[SEEN ON ROAD]It's a Ferrari Testarossa 1992, classic. Probably worth a mint. I bet the person that owns this has no idea that it's being transported like this, Yikes!

[ON THIS DAY]1901 - During the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo New York, where electricity was first demonstrated, [U.S. President William McKinley] was shot and mortally wounded (he died eight days later) by Leon Czolgosz. Czolgosz, an American anarchist, was executed the following October.

Premiering in 1937 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" was an instant hit, and one of Disney's perennial movie attractions.

[PARTING SHOT]“Maycomb was a tired old town, even in 1932 when I first knew it. Somehow, it was hotter then. Men's stiff collars wilted by nine in the morning. Ladies bathed before noon after their three o'clock naps. And by nightfall were like soft teacakes with frosting from sweating and sweet talcum. The day was twenty-four hours long, but it seemed longer. There's no hurry, for there's nowhere to go and nothing to buy...and no money to buy it with.” -  [Harper Lee], To Kill a Mockingbird
