In the Library...

Because the network is down in the dorms and apartments. So many emails to go through in so little time. Emails first, then lampooning entertainment.

Kentucky plays at 12:20 versus Eastern Kentucky this Thursday. Could they have made that game any later? I have class 5 minutes before tip-off so I'll have to download the audio sometime.

Chris Rock has been given the go-ahead for a pilot for a show called Everybody Hates Chris. Isn't that a rip-off of Everybody Loves Raymond, or maybe it's Everybody Loves Daniel that I am thinking of. I'll look into that one.

For Friday, SiteMeter shows 823 unique visitors and 1,003 page views. A record, I say.

Now I can contact Senator Daschle! Daschle has a new job now.
Former senator Thomas A. Daschle (D-S.D.), following a bipartisan path blazed by many prominent ex-members of Congress, has moved from Capitol Hill to K Street, joining Alston & Bird as a special adviser in the law firm's legislative and public policy group.

Daschle, 57, the former Democratic leader in the Senate, starts work today providing the Atlanta-based firm's corporate clients strategic advice on such issues as energy, health care, financial services, tax policy, trade and agriculture. He was recruited by another former Senate leader, Republican Robert J. Dole, 81, who joined the firm as a special counsel in 2003.[...]

Others who recently made the switch include John Breaux, former Democratic senator from Louisiana who became a senior counsel at Patton Boggs, and W.J. "Billy" Tauzin (R-La.), former chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce who is the new head of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America.
I've met Alan Dershowitz and Columbia needs to listen to this guy!
"The kind of hatred that one hears on campuses like Columbia, and especially Columbia, is a barrier to peace" and encourages terrorists, the famous Harvard law professor told hundreds of students at Columbia University's student union Monday, comparing the progress being made in the Middle East with the polarized atmosphere at the Manhattan university.
Why are they playing Ashlee Simpson for the 2nd time (and the same song) here in the library? She sold the Palace out!

The Jewish Jordan? Did I mention Rajon Rondo should be Air Rondo (I coined that name!)
Bruin fans call him the Jewish Jordan. The Freshman Phenom. The Future of UCLA Basketball. Those are high expectations to place on an 18-year-old curly haired kid from the Valley; but the kid doesn’t think so. Freshman point guard Jordan Farmar welcomes the challenge. Actually, he thrives on it.

“I didn’t want to be in just another top 10 basketball factory that shuffled players in and out,” said Farmar, who led Taft High School to its first L.A. city championship in 2004.

The 6-foot-2, 170-pound McDonald’s All-American chose UCLA after Coach Ben Howland told him he saw the Bruins winning and Farmar leading.

Fletcher's back...back again. Fletcher's back...tell a friend:
The Northern Kentucky community is invited to come celebrate "the best session ever” on Tuesday, March 15, at 3:30 p.m. in NKU’s Regents Hall

Please join Northern Kentucky business, education and government leaders; state legislators; NKU administrators and students; and Gov. Ernie Fletcher for this exciting occasion.

The event is free and open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
To go or not to go?

Speaking of K Street, Warren Beatty has a message for the Governator of Caulifornia.
Schwarzenegger should raise taxes on the California rich and "terminate" his fund-raising and dinners with "the brokers of Wall Street" and the "lobbyists of K Street," Beatty said.

Receiving a political award Friday night, the actor who played Sen. Jay Billington Bulworth in the 1998 movie, "Bulworth," said: "Arnold. Be the action hero I know you can be. Be strong. Stand up and confront the wealthiest 1 percent of Californians who have benefited $12 billion a year from the Bush tax cuts."
Mfume to go after Maryland seat...with the hardest name to pronounce ever!

Ernie Fletcher will be running for re-election in 2007. After his announcement, he honored Bert for years of service to the community and then blasted him in private saying he turns other puppets gay.
