Comics reached a new low at the Golden Globes the other week when comic actress Amy Schumer told the viewing public in a televised interview that her vagina itched. I decided to check the meaning of wit: quick and inventive verbal humor. Quick? Ok, that's quick. Inventive and humor? Not so . . .
“I don’t know why people are so keen to put the details of their private life in public; they forget that invisibility is a superpower.” ~Banksy And who would know that better than the reclusive street artist, Banksy, who made an entire career out of invisibility? There's a new category, . . .
She never stood a chance, little girl lost, daughter of the late Whitney Houston, gone now at only 22 years of age. Bobbi Kristina never stood a chance. Every time something like this happens, I wonder when Hollywood, the entertainment industry, celebrities will wake up to . . .
I was 10 years old when we went into space for the first time and I remember it like it was yesterday. The excitement. The anxiety at Alan Shephard's welfare.
