  • I sign few of the online petitions that I am presented with, because most of them are addressed to people who couldn't care less what the general public thinks about what they are doing. Almost all the ones that I do sign are addressed to businesses. But even some of those fail to gain my support. For instance, I got one addressed to a bank which asks that it absolve a co-signer of a loan from his responsibility to pay it, because the primary debtor died. No. Not even though this was a student loan, and the student was his daughter. He was not just "helping his daughter" take out the loan--he promised to pay off the loan if she didn't, for whatever reason. It makes no difference that federal student loans are forgiven in such circumstances. He made a deal, he has to stick to it. 
  • It's amazing how many of my entertainer friends had pictures with Joan Rivers to post. 
  • I got some spam titled, "Would you sleep with a Married Woman?" Of course I would. I sleep with my wife every night.
  • I'm flabbergasted by the recent jump in readers of my glob from Japan and New Zealand. I haven't written anything about either country.
