It's like what my friend Fred used to say...
All professional baseball players look like cops, but not all cops look like professional baseball players.

Advance # 137 since sending a man to the moon...
Notice to all customers in the 310 area code:
Starting July 26, 2006 all Verizon customers must begin all calls using 1+ area code + number.
No more local calls... EVER.
Despite billions of dollars invested over the last decade, the US Telecom Industry advances by making me dial 11 digits instead of 7.

"You done paid to see my little Shiloh, yet?"...
HOLLYWOOD - Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have sold the first pictures of their new baby, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt for over $4 million, but the prized photos have apparently been leaked on the Internet sources say.
People magazine has outbid all other US weekly tabloids for $ 4.1 million to land the Angelina Jolie- Brad Pitt baby Shiloh pictures.
All the weekly magazine editors were summoned to the offices of the Getty photo agency at Canal and Varick late Saturday night. "We were sequestered into separate and un-air-conditioned offices," said one. "The photos were shown to us around 10 p.m. to midnight, and then we had to submit bids by 6 a.m. Sunday morning. No one got any sleep at all, as it was a manic game of phone-tag to top each other's bids. I'm convinced it was Brangie's revenge on the weekly magazines."
Hello magazine from the UK also snatched up rights to the photos. The Issue 922 of HELLO! carries gorgeous, exclusive pictures of the Hollywood couple and their baby girl on sale from Thursday, June 8
