I don't know about you, but I feel pretty foolish today.
The government is going to send me a check with money
borrowed from China. The government is going to send
every working person a check, and some that are not
Today, I wish President Obama would surprise us all.
Stand up at his pulpit and announce on TV "APRIL FOOL!"
Meaning, it's all a big joke, and he isn't really going
to spend three trillion dollars of money we don't have.

45 Year old Natasha Richardson, of the Redgrave Family Acting Dynasty, has died today after being taken off life support in New York City. How tragic and sad for her family, her husband Liam Neeson and their two sons, Michael and Daniel. Natasha was one of the younger members of the Redgrave family, her mother being Vanessa Redgrave, daughter of Michael Redgrave and Rachel Kempson, shown above. Natasha's aunt, Lynn Redgrave, uncle Corin Redgrave, and Natasha's sister Joely Richardson, are all famous in their own right theatrically.
As Mary Schmich said in her famous article fantasizing about a good commencement address, that was falsely attributed to Kurt Vonnegut,
"The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind, the kind that blindside you at 4 pm on some idle Tuesday."
So may this be the reason behind Natasha's premature death, something that never crossed anyone's mind as being possible, on any day of the week.
It is always a shock to learn of an improbable passing. To her family, her husband, her sons, her mother, sister, aunt and uncle, our deepest sympathies and comfort.
The Broadway community will no doubt dim its lights in her honor tomorrow night.

LIVE THEATER ~ AMERICAN MUSICAL COMEDY,
MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!
If this doesn't make you laugh and blank out your brain, you're dead!
This Economy has me in the dumps.
Typical Busby Berkeley Number from 1930's films.
A depression era treat for the masses.
I'm choosing Broadway Musicals for MY escape!
CRAZY FOR YOU is my absolute FAVORITE MUSICAL!
I am IN LOVE with HARRY GROENER, and have been since I saw the show
ON BROADWAY in 1993.
I even sent him my photo, fool that I am!
Isn't he just adorable???? :-)
The "Merm" belts it out...
So you too may while away a few minutes of your time, escaping to Broadway.
If I were there, I'd see every single show playing.
That's my answer to these troubling times...
it's called "Looking the other way." :-)
And you have to admit, "Anything Goes"
is certainly the Theme Song of

The man driving the watercraft is OBAMA.
The watercraft is OBAMA'S PLAN TO BAILOUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
The surfer represents THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
The surfboard represents our ECONOMY.
The TSUNAMI represents REALITY.
Notice at the end of the ride, it's difficult to see what happened...
(The American people are TOUGH)!!!!
But you can bet it's going to be a hell of a ride.
