R.I.P. Papa Denny Doherty (1940-2007)

The world lost another pioneering singer/songwriter today (1.19) when Denny Doherty, a founding member of The Mamas and The Papas, died after a short undisclosed illness. He passed away at his home in Mississauga, Ontario near Toronto, at the age off 66. The Mamas and The Papas were a Grammy winning folk/rock group off the Hippie Era, known for such classics as “Monday, Monday” and “California Dreamin’”. The band also included the late Mass Cass (Elliot), who died of a heart attack at the age of 32 in 1974, and Michelle and John Phillips, who were married for part...

Lindsay Lohan’s Not A Drunk, She Just Enters Rehab Like One

It was only a matter of time, really. I mean, is anyone actually surprised? In case you haven’t heard, Lindsay Lohan has officially entered rehab. Around 2:30pm yesterday she checked herself into the Wonderland Center* for treatment. I wonder if they have a Mother/Daughter program Lindsay can do with your mom. From what I hear, Dina could use some help too. Although I wish Lindsay Lohan the best, I’m certainly not going to hold my breath until she’s “recovered”. It’s Hollywood. She’s young. She’ll be drinking again. Mark my words,...

Always Remember Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today is Martin Luther King Day. I wish the non-violent revolutionary was still here on Earth. We could really use him right about now. What would he have to say? About the war in Iraq? About sex on TV? About all the race related violence that is sadly still prevalent? …Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night...

Did You Hear The One About The Electrocuting Moles?

Garden moles have now joined the animal revolution. It is being reported that a 63-year-old man in Zingst, Germany was killed last Thursday after electrocuting himself on a high-voltage cable meant to rid his garden of moles. But I think that’s just the cover story. I think the man, a retired construction foreman, was indeed trying to install the 380-volt cable and metal ground spikes in order to kill the moles, however, I think the moles got wind of his impending actions and made their move first. And what a move it was. According to police spokesman Uwe Werner, there was...
