Lots of little newsy events happening hither and yon. What do you think?
1. W's dog and offspring of previous presidential pooch "Millie" has scampered off to the big Milk Bone in the sky. I don't suppose I can haze anybody on the passing of a pet, but I would like to know two things. First of all, what rocket scientist named this dog "Spot"? I'm thinking there should be a department of naming pets department. Spot. Socks. Buddy. Next thing you know, they'll have a bird and name it Brunch. Secondly, with the current administration's supposed push on literacy, I can only assume this dog could read. BaconBaconBaconBacon Here! What's that say? You can't read?? Go ask Spot. Except now I guess you can't anymore.
2. Nader is running for President in 2004 as an Independent. As much as I'd prefer refrigerator mold to the current administration, I just have to wonder what on earth Nadar is thinking of? I mean, besides himself. I suggest he take all the money he's going to blow on his snowball's-chance campaign and just buy himself a cable channel. Then he satisfy his ego by watching himself on TV, and save the rest of the nation the worry about splitting the vote and wondering whose turn is it to watch Florida.
3. Christina Aguilera on Saturday Night Live was (dare I say it?) really funny last night. She was dead-on perfect as Samantha from Sex and the City. Overall, I have to say it's nice to see celebs able to take a good-natured ribbing about themselves. Then again, if she wore a bit more ribbing there might not be so much ridicule in the first place. But the OCD finger flicking on the microphone was more than a bit distracting. Maybe she was a flutist in a former life?
