    Whipple, you are hilarious. I think I still have the similar list you made when it was announced, back in 1996, that we might someday have 500 cable channels to choose from. Only mistake you made back then was failure to anticipate that 300 of them would be devoted to Sarah Palin. I just tweeted your post. You should tweet. You would find it annoying, and that would give you something new to write about. Miss you. Hope your lip is down so you can drink coffee now. Stop eating whatever it was. — Nadia
