Happy Monday


Happy Birthday to Herb Alpert (73) of the famous Tijuana Brass and author of the Whipped Cream and Other Delights album.? I used to listen to this as a teenager believe it or not.? I guess I had more culture than most :)? I was in a creative mood this morning so I made a new cartoon of myself.? Also a lot of notable birthdays today.? Al Gore (60), Shirley Jones (Partridge Family,74), Richard Chamberlain (74), Christopher Walken (65), Gabe Kaplan(Welcome Back Kotter, 63), Rhea Perlman (Cheers,60), William McNamara (43), Ewan McGregor (37), and finally historically Cesar Chavez would have turned 101.

Metro Meeting tonight



I am going later to a metro meeting at headquarters to give some input on their draft of 25 year projected transit plan.? I really would like to see the subway extended to santa monica beach before I am dead! Otherwise, there are some successful lines like Orange busway, Gold Line to Pasadena, and the current Red line.? I am fond of transit, and wish they had more trains :)? I even considered driving a train or bus at one point.? Might be interesting right.

Fun History Lesson


today in 1999, Dr. Jack Kevorkian was convicted of second-degree murder for giving a lethal injection to an ailing man whose death was shown on “60 Minutes.”? This dude was infamous for killing a bunch of supposedly terminally ill people via lethal injection.? Just goes to show that anyone can get a doctor license :)?? Happy Birthday to celebs Diana Ross(64), Leonard Nimoy(77), James Caan(68), Vicki Lawrence(59), Martin Short(58), and TR Knight(35) whom I only saw once in person.
