Fire, Walk With ZZZ

  • The Monologue:
    • Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan was detained at the Newark Airport while in the U.S. filming a movie about racial profiling called My Name Is Kahn. When reached for comment, William Shatner said, "Who?"
    • A huge forest fire in Santa Barbara was started near where people were growing marijuana. "I just couldn't make it on time" leave is in effect for all Santa Barbara employees tomorrow.
    • My cell phone just rang. It was John Kerry, calling Brett Favre a flip-flopper.
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • I'm not the only one who's going to boo the last few scenes of There's Something About Mary from now on, right?
    • Greg Paulus, a four-year player at point guard for Duke, is now the starting QB at Syracuse, where he's attending grad school. How the heck does that work?
  • Random Question:
    • Gave up on a rewatch of Twin Peaks -- it just doesn't hold up. It's boring, too weird, too slow. There are shows we know sucked back in the day -- Alf, Small Wonder -- that don't hold up and there are shows we thought were good that don't hold up now. Of course, there are shows besides your obvious Nick At Nite ones like Lucy or Dick Van Dyke that do hold up and are just as good now as they were then. On the ones that don't hold up, I can think of Twin Peaks and Family Ties. For ones that do, I can think of Cosby, Cheers, and Married... With Children. Which others?
