A Mercedes Benz crashed through a plate glass window at CNN Center in Atlanta last week... temporarily interrupting their non-stop coverage of the missing Malaysian Air jet.

I'm just getting caught up on TV shows and am watching "The Blacklist." All this time, I thought it was the names of people Donald Sterling didn't want at Clippers games.

Don't tell me what happened on "Game of Thrones" Sunday night because, some day, I might start watching that show. Right after I see "Breaking Bad."

Donald Sterling has reportedly hired four private investigators to dig up dirt on NBA commissioners and other owners. Unfortunately for Donald, the best stuff that came back was about him.

Chevron is selling some oil assets to Chad for $1.3 Billion. The deal came about because Chevron and Chad used to be fraternity brothers.

Best advice I ever got: "Always ignore advice!"

I had this idea: get Dick Cheney to guest star on "Game of Thrones!" He'd make a great wedding planner.
