#266

Cool. We will look for it.


#267

Saw it. Made me pine (yes, pine!) for the old record store days when the staff were all a bunch of hippies who were pretty much unemployable in the real world.

Harry Anderson (Night Court)


#271

Wow! Really?

I loved “Night Court”.


#272

Patrick McManus too


#273

I loved Night Court too. My favorite role of his was as Harry “the hat” on Cheers.

Edit: In fact, I once won $100 from a guy using this trick.


#274

Plus I liked that he landed roles where his name was Harry. He’s a cooler Tony Danza.


#275

Loved him in Cheers


#276

Newscaster, Carl Kassel, of Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me fame.


#277

Barbara Bush, R.I.P.


#278

I thought she died years ago

“Your success as a family, our success as a society, depends not on what happens at the White House but on what happens inside your house.”
–Barbara Bush

I know this sounds like a typical compassionate conservative bromide, but it’s true to a large degree, isn’t it?

Also, I can’t think about B Bush without thinking of Borat.
