PRESIDENT BUSH & ALEC BALDWIN

A couple of interesting reactions and the speed in which said reactions took place. When actor Alec Baldwin found out about an 18-year old soldier who was about to be sent to Iraq, he immediately offered to help pay for her college education after she leaves the military. Baldwin is against the war, but this is his way of showing he supports the troops.

President Bush supports the war and always talks about supporting the troops, but when it comes to actual support, we're reminded of soldiers whose parents sent them bulletproof vests because the vests the soldiers had were quite receptive to bullets. In time, that problem was fixed. A lot of time. Same deal with so-called armored vehicles. In time, that problem was fixed but during that time, lots of soldiers died or were injured. But of course an administration that supports the troops would certainly see to it that these troops received the very best medical care when they returned to this country. Especially if they had been injured, right? Oops! Anybody hear about Walter Reed, red tape, on top of red tape, rats, maggots, etc.? When did we hear about it? A few weeks ago? Something like that? And President Bush went to Walter Reed for the first time (since the story broke) today?!?

Let's recap. Anti-war actor Alec Baldwin hears about an 18-year old who's about to be deployed to Iraq and he does something for that soldier immediately.

But President "I am the decider!" Bush takes his time "deciding" and our soldiers....Heck, every person reading this can complete the sentence I started to write.

Did everyone at Dodger Stadium have fun with the new parking situation last night?

After two episodes on Thursday nights, Jeff Goldblum's new series "Raines" begins airing on Friday nights (tonight) at 9 on NBC. Interesting concept. A cop (Goldblum) who speaks to dead people who help him solve crimes. The first two episodes have worked for me!

Speaking of television...critics pretty much brutalized ABC's "October Road" which began following "Grey's Anatomy" three weeks ago. I guess I'm a contrarian. I like the show a lot.

Speaking of "Grey's Anatomy"....No doubt about it, this is America's number one on-camera soap opera. But would any of us be surprised if (years from now) we learn that the off-camera and highly publicized soap opera between cast members was bought and paid for?

Is it just me, or does David Letterman continue to get better and funnier?

Terrific story in laradio.com today about Indie 101.1 making KROQ feel inferior regarding the "cool factor". Poor babies. Check it out.

I hope you all have a great weekend.
