Kenneth Mars, R.I.P.

News of death is never easy, so it comes a s a sad gut-punch to learn that actor Kenneth Mars has passed away, from pancreatic cancer, at the age of 75. Maybe the name doesn’t mean much to you, but trust me

Trend Watch January 23, 2011

Well, I have to say, the trend watch for today, Sunday, January 23rd, 2011 looks a little grim, at first perusal. It’s about 2pm EST and the top searches are about unemployment benefits and whether you can get the in places like Ohio and Arizona. Which, in Arizona, will probably involve loose interpretations of “probable cause” to ask for proof of citizenship, should the applicant be Hispanic, or even kinda Hispanic-looking. Damn suspicious, all that standing in line in a poorly ventilated and institutional-colored state government office like the Arizona Unemployment Office. Damn suspicious. Good thing we have SB1070 to make a third of the state’s population nervous about applying for assistance in these econimically-uncertain times. No profiling there.
