Writer's strike: First step to U.S. decline

The writer's strike is a big sign of bad things to come for the United States. What started out as a small strike is now becoming the cause of loss of millions of dollars in our country's exports.

And forget it if you're in the industry. Los Angeles alone loses millions of dollars a day because of it.

I hope it ends soon.

My baby Jessica goes Country

My baby celebobsession, Jessica Simpson, says that she's going to put a twang in her speech. She's going country superstar to revive her singing career. I personally think Newlyweds 2 is what she should be doing.

Ingrid Newkirk is my heroine

Not heroin, the drug, but heroine, the female version of a hero. Got it? Ok good.

I just finished watching her documentary currently airing on HBO and it's absolutely thrilling. (View Trailer).

I think the song Super Woman can easily be dedicated to her. Notably, Ingrid started campaigning for animal rights at a very young age. She is the head of P.E.T.A. (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and a very controversial figure because her tactics aren't exactly kosher.

But as Bill Maher puts it eloquently in the documentary, "many people are worried about crossing the line, I'm more worried about those people that don't even approach the line."

I have many friends who are vegetarian and vegan that oppose PETA's methods. From showing videos of slaughterhouses in front of barbecue restaurants to throwing red paint on fur coats to give the public an up close look at how the products they consume got to them. It's like an exercise in increasing knowledge, but people don't seem to take well to it. Primarily because it seems a bit edgy, a bit graphic, and a little over the top (referring to the campaigns involving nudity).

But I ask you, reader, how is an animal; a dog, cat, monkey, turkey, chicken, cow, or pig going to be able to help itself against massive organized torture and slaughter? To begin with, all of these animals are five-sensed beings just like any human. They feel the same amount of pain as you and I when undergoing pain. A skinned sheep that is left bloodied, however, won't be able to report the abuse to the local authorities. There have to be measures taken in order for a voice to be created for the helpless.

All that Ingrid does along with the rest of PETA is be the voice of the voiceless. If you have HBO try to watch the documentary, it is eye-opening and is reported in a very objective manner so that you can make up your mind as to how you feel about PETA.

Is LOST gone?

With the writer's strike on, I don't really care about the fate of many television series. Sure it'll hurt me if Vinny Chase and the boys aren't back in town earning millions and spending like idiots. Sure, I'll also miss a couple of lame laughs at the expense of Larry David's bald thick head getting into silly antics.

But what I'll truly miss and have nightmares about is not knowing LOST's ending. Damon Lindelof, the show runner on the hit television show that has me begging for more, is upset with the producers. They want to run the 8 completed episodes of the show starting January - regardless of the fact that 8 more still need to be shot.

Look. I don't care what you guys do. As long as I find out what the hell all the cloning is all about and why Desmond can see the future, brother.

You'll never know each other

Many people feel that the most important part of a couple's survival & fidelity relies on how well they know one another.

The trouble is, if you claim to know anyone besides yourself, you're not giving the other person chance to grow and breathe.

It's better to give them leeway rather than pigeon-hole them into a certainty that will continue to self-perpetuate if you don't let your loved ones free.

Freedom is key. Independence is of utmost importance. Please review this carefully.

Life is what happens to you when

you're busy making other plans.

It's not just a quote from a beautiful song. It's something that should be paid attention to.
