Hope, Hope & More

  • It’s hard to believe, but Bob Hope turns 100 on Thursday! I can remember seeing his specials when I was a little kid and thinking, he’s pretty funny for an old guy.
  • When Boston Public returns this fall it will be on a new night [Friday] and without Joey McIntyre, Jon Abrahams, Cara DeLizia and China Shavers. I just hope the audience returns.
  • Two Texas prison inmates have received permission to marry even though they have never met and cannot honeymoon until at least 2036. That brings a whole new meaning to if you love me, you’ll wait.
  • A woman gave birth to a baby in a well she had jumped into when she could not take the labor pain, police said. I’m happy to report that the mother and child are both doing, ah… well.
