Oscar Winners

Congrats to Kentucky's George Clooney! Oh, and Jon was great as usual. These are in no particular order but blogging will be light today because I will be watching several movies to look for some inspiration for new comedy material. I still have to do my SNL review as well. Make sure to vote for my postings at Wampum for the Koufax awards!
