Asshole Editors

Was reading one of Smerconish's columns on last night. One of the targeted ads at the bottom of the page said:

Ricardo Montalban, R.I.P.

Ricardo Montalban, who starred in roles ranging from Indian to suave lover, to Fantasy Island's Mr. Roarke, to Khan Noonien Singh on Star Trek (the original series and the second movie), to The Dynasty spinoff (The Colbys), to Spy Kids 2/3, Kim Possible, and Freakazoid. Not to mention The Naked Gun. And two Planet of the Apes movies. And pitchman for the Chrysler Cordoba and its 'Corinthian leather.' Obit here from LA Times. Montalban was 88, which means this obit's been written for a while.

He tasks me. He tasks me and I shall have him! I'll chase him 'round the moons of Nibia and 'round the Antares Maelstrom and 'round Perdition's flames before I give him up!
I've done far worse than kill you, Admiral. I've hurt you. And I wish to go on hurting you. I shall leave you as you left me, as you left her; marooned for all eternity in the center of a dead planet... buried alive! Buried alive...!
from Star Trek II: the Wrath of Khan (source: IMDB)

That voice. He will be missed.

It's all about the O

As in...
O for President-Elect Obama. Still seems unreal.
O for Oh shit, a political scandal in Illinois! Who'd have thunk it?
O for Oh boy, Bill Richardson bows out from Commerce due to an investigation into his campaign contributions.
O for Oh, I forgot to pay the IRS self-employment taxes when they were due, not to mention that illegal alien I hired as my housekeeper (Tim Geithner, Treasury Secretary nominee).

More to come, I'm sure.
