    There's always someone who needs to lose weight. Oprah's probably thinking of people in her audience.

    These Planet in Peril reports bring in a lot of angles, how the environment is affected by necessity and politics, how we're affected by the environment, I like this.

    Good story of Letterman, Anderson.

    Goodnight everyone.

    THe politicians just can't do it. It is going to take "we the voters" to do it. We have to do more than vote. We have to stay activing and engaging, and electronics will help. We the voters have to address the problems and keep the cheaters at bay, in business, government and education. I am really tired of the corruption.

    I can SO relate to your Mom, Anderson! I'm the exact same way with my kids. They all know I despise holidays. I've not gone that far with it, but your Mom has certainly given me the brevity to do so in the future. 🙂

    The governor of Illinois has sunk to a new low....greed will always be the straw that breaks the camel's back....the nail in the coffin. May justice be done for the people of Illinois.

    I did enjoy your segment on the Lettermen last night. I felt so bad about your thanksgiving turkey coming to you in with no mom... so sad... Hopefully she won't send a ham for Christmas... We have an extended family event in my Aunt's little house in South City. Everyone crammed in but don't fret, sometimes the fam can cause a little stress and it is nice sometimes to just kick back after the holidays and just chill..
