President Obama says he'll do whatever it takes to get his healthcare package passed. Today he said a small boy snuck into the legislation and the only way to get him out safely was to pass the bill.

A new study shows the average man cries seven times a year. Let's see, end of baseball season, end of football season -- college and pro-- basketball season, golf, soccer, hockey... yep, that's 7!

Fridays are so great, they should be holidays. Then again, if they were, we'd get them off and I'd be saying the same thing about Thursdays.

That Colorado family involved in the whole balloon boy fiasco was also once featured on the ABC show, "Wife Swap." So they're no strangers to the limelight. And, obviously, the swap didn't help... ...

Garth Brooks is coming out of retirement -- again -- to perform at Wynn Las Vegas. Even Michael Jordan and Brett Favre said, "Enough, already... "

OK, I'm officially tired of this whole "Balloon Boy" saga. For Christmas, I'm getting him a porcupine!

The latest quarterly profits for Pfizer were up 26%.  OF course, if they stay up for more than four quarters, they should see a doctor.

A strange thing happened this morning.  A guy walked up to me claiming he was John Connor from the future and was warning me about the Motorola Droid taking over the world.
