Slam Dunk Friday

I shouldn’t give a shit about the things celebrities get up to, but I’m terribly disappointed with comedian Patton Oswalt for participating in online sports book advertisements on TV. Not many things are sins in my book, but gambling is one, and moreover one with a devastating effect on families. Shame on me for thinking Oswalt was one of the good guys.

This Isn’t Television

I can see why well-meaning people think bipartisanship is better than partisanship. I can also see why so many cling to a belief in trickle-down economics. In the television world of The West Wing, making concessions and getting along always works, and when the rich get richer they give workers raises and create new jobs for the unemployed.
