Dan Rather Divorce Story False – Surprisingly, Dan Rather Didn’t Break the Original Story

According to Liz Smith, the gossip… whatever she is… Dan Rather is not getting a divorce, as has been rumored in various corners of cyberspace.

Rumors were that the couple was splitting and were in a fierce battle over who gets custody of the Microsoft Word and Photoshop software. Fortunately, this apparently isn’t true, and we wish the couple well.

Courage.

Jeb Bush to Sign "Restaurants I'll Never Eat At" Bill

It would appear that humanity, at least in Florida, is going to the dogs:

Dogs may soon be allowed to accompany their owners out to dinner.

Gov. Jeb Bush says that on Friday he will sign a ‘dining with dogs’ bill. The legislation gives local governments the OK to let restaurants permit dogs to eat with their owners in outdoor dining areas.

The measure would create a three-year pilot program after which time the state would revisit the issue to determine whether it was a good idea.

Let me get this straight, you can’t have a cigar at many of these places, but it’s okay for a dog to take a dump three feet from my appetizer tray?

The “dining with dogs” legislation, which I refer to as the “restaurants I’ll never eat at bill”, will probably be revisited before the three years are up. Why? To apply a legal exemption for Korean restaurants, where a “table for four” sits down, and by the end of the night, only two leave.

All joking aside, people who feel the need to take their dogs everywhere need to be discouraged, not encouraged. If you’re not blind, you shouldn’t have a dog in tow, or vice-versa, more than a short period of time. You might love them, and that’s great. I have a dog too, but I sure as hell don’t take it to Bennigans with me. If you’re dying to eat with your dog, great, then get on your hands and knees and share a bowl of Kibbles n’ Bits with Rover.

True, dogs are called “man’s best friend”, but, with a few isolated exceptions, our best friends don’t pee on the sidewalk and hump our legs while we’re trying to finish a cheeseburger. They don’t do it to the people at the next table, either.

The upside to the “dining with dogs” act is for Courtney Love, who will soon be able to legally enter Florida restaurants.

Michael Moore Faces A Different Kind Of Fat Suit

You mean to say that Michael Moore’s film “Fahrenheit 911” contained out of context quotes and footage? No way! Next thing you know, they’ll tell us that Moore owns Halliburton stock. What? Really? Oh…

From the New York Post:

A double-amputee Iraq-war vet is suing Michael Moore for $85 million, claiming the portly peacenik recycled an old interview and used it out of context to make him appear anti-war in “Fahrenheit 9/11.”

Sgt. Peter Damon, a National Guardsman from Middleborough, is asking for damages because of “loss of reputation, emotional distress, embarrassment, and personal humiliation,” according to the lawsuit filed in Suffolk Superior Court last week.

If this lawsuit goes very far, and it should if it’s true, then sit back and watch as dozens of others come forward against Moore. People coming forward against powerful conglomerates are like birthing babies: the first is always the toughest, and it gets subsequently easier with each one (for the man).

Because of this, I won’t be surprised if even former allies of Moore — the man who, wherever you see him, you assume that’s where the bus stop is — take a few legal shots at the Cannes-celebrated filmmaker and basher of any corporation not called “Michael Moore, Inc”. The smell of money will shove any Bush hatred to the back of the bus, at least temporarily, and once the spigot is turned on, watch for hot and cold running lawsuits to start pouring in.

The embellishments aren’t not surprising in the least. A year and a half ago, Moore’s advice to Democrats running for office was for them to “embrace Hollywood because this is where they need to come to learn how to tell a story”. By “tell a story”, Moore apparently meant “lie”.

Poor Democrats – they’re seeking a “shining city on a hill” and all they get from their consultant is directions to Jonestown and a lesson in how to draw a big fat lawsuit.

Future Democrat candidates should embrace Hollywood more? This is one group hug that could ensure Republican control of the government until the sun turns into a white dwarf, plus a few weeks.

Hold on to your wallet, Michael, because there may soon be a lot of people taking your advice and seeking a “sharing of the wealth”. The problem is, they’re starting with you. Didn’t plan on that, did you Mike?

In the meantime, if this lawsuit grows into a bigger story than it is now, it will be interesting to see how Moore and the media handle a double amputee, who made a great sacrifice for a mission and president in which he believes. If more people come forward to support Sgt. Damon, or to themselves file suit, Moore could be facing an old school beatdown.

If this story spreads, we may find out exactly how much Michael Moore supports the troops, as he claims. If many come forward and win lawsuits, Moore may be “supporting the troops” far more literally than the original intent of that statement.
