Funeral plans for the former “Doors” keyboardist Ray Manzarek have been delayed until his friends and family can decide if they should respect those years of his not so subtle message to “Light My Fire” and go the cremation route, or just bury him.
And lest we forget…….
Leonard Marsh, the man who was one of the creators of the drink “Snapple” has died. At his funeral, many of his family and friends quietly waited in line to stand by his body one last time and pay their last respects, but some just wanted to read the funny stuff that was printed on the inside of his coffin lid.
Honestly now, what’s with the big deal about same sex marriage?
I’ve been married for over ten years and for most of that time, once a week as sure as the sun rises in the East it’s always the same sex.
Now for something completely different, once again…..
As I always do this time of year when my birthday nears, I’ve been doing an assessment on the status of my corporeal being, sadly it’s not all good news.
In the previous year I’ve gained about three pounds (this would also describe my bank account if I was in England, and as most people in the world, I’d be ignoring the Euro).
For my age I still have a lot of hair on my head, but sadly it seems to have migrated to the inside of my ears and nose.
The great but for the most part unpopulated state of North Dakota has banned abortions as soon as a heart beat can be detected.
Progressives, meaning those of us who choose to live in the 21st Century, may launch a counter measure, one that would require abortions when no brain wave activity can be detected.
This idea is causing concern among republicans since it could allow certain of their congress members to be subject to late term abortions.
You know, “Very Late Term” abortions might even be an appropriate description for some in office who are near to the age of collecting retirement benefits.
People who were worried about the effort to be the next pope by former Los Angeles Archbishop Roger Mahony will now have less to worry about. Vatican security guards have reported that they’ve taken his campaign manager Karl Rove into custody and freed dozens of altar boys who were being held captive in his hotel room.
In a related story, Mahony has suggested a new way for priests to be more closely connected with those altar boys who sometimes, literally, must give their all to their superiors. Starting next Easter, the boys will play “Hide the host”, putting it somewhere in their robes, and then a blindfolded priest will be given 24 hours to find it.
And this just in, what was thought to be the results of a first vote by the cardinals to pick a new pope turned out to be just a non-connected huge puff of smoke. The source became clear when a tour bus owned by Willy Nelson and one that belonged to Snoop Dogg were found parked side by side in the Vatican’s parking lot. So, it might be taken by some as sort of a signal from a much higher source.
Executives from several oil companies were injured in a rainy day multi car pileup on the freeway leading to the airport. First reports indicate that these C.E.O.’s had moments before thrown briefcases full of cash at their limo drivers to speed them up in a bid to be able to get on the first flight to Venezuela in the event that country might reverse their nationalization of the oil fields, now that Hugo Chavez is dead.

P.S., check back for occasional updates and rewrites….
It may be a coincidence, but ever since President Obama has gotten more comfortable with the use of weaponized drones, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and Eric Cantor have been having a tough time getting a 5th person to join them as they drive to work in their car pool vehicle.
Roger Michael Mahony, the former “Praise the lord and pass all of those pedophile priests along to another diocese” ex archbishop of Los Angeles is going to travel to Rome to help select the next pope. It will be interesting to see what happens when he gets to the Vatican and finds that he will not be able to enter, as is his preference, through the back door……
