Let's see, which linen to air today? Seeing as Babs scooped me with the decomposing body of Anna Nicole, that only leaves rape in Iraq, Libby's defense lawyer ending his closing arguments with a sob (who, sniffle sniffle, can remember details when there's a war against terror taking up all that RAM?) and a Jet Blue CEO more remorseful for stranding people on a runway than our national CEO is for stranding our troops in Iraq.
So let's keep this on the bigger topics of the day. Read on.
There's bald Britney, checking into, and out of, rehab once again. And it's gay marriage that threatens the sanctity of marriage? How about a constitutional ammendment to ban celebrity marriage? As for celebrity child-rearing -- oh, never mind.
Well, why let celebrities hog the limelight?
I'm going to let Joshua Hanson, a 29-year-old bar owner from Blair, Wisconsin, hang on the line today for his 15 minutes. He is today's winner of the Clothesline's first ever Stating-the-Obvious
Hanson ran full speed down a hotel corridor and right through a double pane safety glass window in a Minnepolis hotel after a night of darts and drinking, fell 16 stories, and lived to tell about it --except he doesn't remember any of it. He figures God has a plan for him, though he doesn't know what it is, but maybe, he says, it will come to him when he gets on his motorcycle again. (Joshua? Wear a helmet. Stick to the back roads. Please, stay in Wisconsin.) Exhibiting the learning curve of a man who's survived a 16 story plunge, he adds that maybe the episode is a sign that he should cut back on his drinking. Ya think?
Tomorrow we'll get back to the frivolous.
