The Queen and I
While weathering arctic winds that had my testicles nestled warmly within my abdomen, J’Moo and I made our way to The Actor’s Studio last night – the Bravo network’s taping of celebrity guests featuring host James Lipton. Last night’s guest, Queen Latifah aka Dana Owens, was astoundingly beautiful and down-to-earth. She explained how her determination, great friends and pure luck have made her an A-list celebrity. The Newark, NJ-born Latifah detailed the course of her career and even showed clips of an upcoming film she is starring in with LL Cool J. J’Moo, I don’t forgive you for acting as though you were knitting while the Queen was giving a slightly drawn-out story of how her entertainment company was formed. I laughed so hard I thought we would be asked to leave. All-in-all, this was an unforgettable introduction.

The Gerber family of Dunedin, Florida has filed a criminal complaint against their five-year old son’s school bus driver and the bus attendant for allegedly duct-taping his mouth shut while driving the tike home. "It hurt when you take it off, and when you put it on you, it's a little bit sticky," said Kyle Gerber. The driver and monitor have been taken off the route while an investigation takes place.
NYC Transit May Have Us Take A Walk
Beginning Friday at 12:01 a.m., NYC Transit workers may strike after conflicts in contract negotiations have held both sides in their corners and ready to take action. The Metropolitan Transit Authority has offered workers a six percent raise, but union officials demanded an eight percent raise. If a strike occurs New Yorkers may be forced to use cab service and personal vehicles to replace the oldest and largest transportation system in the country. NYC Mayor, Michael Bloomberg has already suggested some stringent rules would go into effect if a strike occurs – including HOV restrictions that will require four occupants to each car driving into the city limits. The strike would cost the city an estimate $200 million per day in lost economic activity and productivity.
