Every time Sarah Palin opens her mouth, something stupid comes out of it. I wish men could stop looking at her long enough to really listen to what she's saying. There's a disconnect. This week's infraction: Paul Revere and the phrase "The British ar ...

OK. I was a bit excited about the Royal Wedding. I refused to get up for it at 4 a.m. The beauty of having 24-7 news coverage is that I can wake up at a normal time and see the things I wanted to see. The vows, Kate' dress, the kiss, the hats, and wh ...

Hands down in my house, it is cleaning the toilet. Who wants to do that? Next comes putting away clothes after you have washed them. Then probably sorting socks. And finally what I affectionately call "double cleaning."
