A couple of quick hits from the homefront:
My lovely wife Sharon called me to tell that, in addition to crushing the dreams of the homeless in St. Louis, I have also apparently ruined prospects for a quick recovery in tornado-ravaged Joplin. The news heads on the morning show were able to add some additional reporting to their story on Hootergate-- the manager told them that some of that money would have been sent to the tornado victims in Joplin!
My response to the Hooters manager: No one's stopping you-- send it anyway.
And now the Fox affiliate in Boston has chimed in.
And earlier, as I sat at the breakfast counter eating oatmeal, my two-year old daughter sat next to me and asked, "Daddy, can I see if that's barf?"
Have a great day, everyone!
