Is Sarah Palin an "Effen" Retard?

Sarah Palin's address at the Tea Party convention in Nashville vividly demonstrates why this woman is unlikely to ever become president of the United States: she's too forgetful-she writes notes to herself in the palm of her hand. When we did this in school it was considered a form of cheating. Is Sarah Palin an effen retard? The woman is paid $100K per speech and she writes her notes in her hand? Give me a break! She is getting publicity and attention that should be saved for someone who has something significant to say or a real author, and not an attention seeking former beauty queen with a ghostwritten book and too much time on her hands.

Happy Birthday, Robert Towsend...

In my ever-changing, hectic life as the next Pulitzer Prize winning news journalist from Chicago now residing in Georgia, I sometimes get so bogged down that I forget stuff I really want to remember. For example--birthdays. If I get up early enough and I'm not having hot flashes or some other kinda 'senior moment', I can remember when people I love are born.
Yesterday, February 8th was Robert Townsend's 53rd birthday!
Robert is one of the funniest comedians, one of the most dynamic actors, one of the most talented directors and writers and just an all around great guy. Please take a moment to check out his website. He's got clips on his newest project--The History of Black Comedy: Why We Laugh.

Hey Robert, I hope your birthday was just like you are--da bomb!
