Alice Walker the Pulitzer Prize winning author who wrote “The Color Purple.” is heading to the Gaza Strip to highlight the devastation the Israeli offensive had on it’s residents. Problem is when you have terrorists living among the population this is going to happen when you try to eliminate them. Unfortunately there are no innocent sides to a war. Only pain and misery.

Glad to see Phish is back together again. They performed at the Hampton Theater in Vermont. They were an inovative band back in a day. From what I read the concert went well. It music playing was crisp an the Phish crowd was into it. I hope that they stay together and make an impact on the music world.

The top 13 American Idol finalists will be doing Michael Jackson songs this season. The show’s producers sya that the “Gloved One” will not be performing on the show this season. But hey, you never know stranger things have happened. And with the “Gloved one” strange never seems to be far away.

It looks like Robin Williams will be under going heart surgery. To be exact he needs an aortic valve replacement. The same type of procedure that former First Lady Barbara Bush had. Mr. Williams had been experiencing shortness of breath which according to The Society of Throracic Surgeons is a symptom of this kind of heat disorder. I do wish Mr. Williams all the best when he under goes the surgery.

Well we now have the top 13 finalists for American Idol. Jasmine Murray, Matt Giraud, Megan Corkey and Anoop Desai rounded it off. Tatiana Del Toro got real emotional after finding out that she was not picked. She feel to her knees and pleaded with the judges. All for naught though. Ryan Seacrest came on stage and said that she did not have to get up off her knees. Kara Dioguardi kept on repeating “Family Show, Family show.” throughout the awkward moment.

The other finalists are Danny Gokey, Alexis Grace, Allison Iraheta, Adam Lambert, Scott MacIntyre, Jorge Nunez, Lil Rounds and Michael Sarver. So this is the first time that there will be a top 13. Cool. Next week Original American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson will perform. That should be quite good!

In other news Warner Bros studios is hoping that “The Watchmen” will have a big starting weekend. something on par of 60 million dollar gross. I know one thing for sure is that I will be seeing the movie this weekend. And I will give my review shortly thereafter. So we will see what happens!

Well that is it for now and may your day be wonderful!

First of all I was very sadden to see that Paul Harvey had passed away today. He was 90 years old. He was a news commentator and a talk radio pioneer whose style endeared him to millions of people. I offer my sympathies to his family. He was a great communicator and a great man. Truly one of a kind. That type of personality will be impossible to replace. He will be sorely missed.

It looks like Rihanna and Chris Brown maybe trying to work out their issues. They have been holed up in P. Diddy’s Miami Beach mansion for the past couple of days. I am hoping that they can work things out for the better. If it is true and I say once again if it is ture that Chris does have anger issues then it is indeed my hope that he seeks proper counseling to resolves those issues. In any case I wish them both good luck.

Well that is it for now and may your day be wonderful.
