Welcome back. How's your weekend going so far? It looks like it's going to rain at any point now. That works for me, because I'm sure it will help the Clutter Tree's new buds. I still can't fully shake off this bug, so BDH and Little Buddha have ordered me to lie down and take it easy for a while after we're done here today. They may be small, but they call the shots around here, so that's my plan. However, we do have work to do first, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday Clutter.
Have no fear, everyone. Director James Cameron is going to tell us how to find Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. CNN could have saved themselves hours of meaningless coverage if they'd just gone straight to the expert.
To the shock of everyone, noted health care expert Donald Trump publicly applauded the Obama administration for successfully signing up seven million people for health care coverage via Obamacare. I'm just kidding, he went into full-denial mode instead.
Meanwhile, 2016 GOP candidate Mike Huckabee thinks he'd have more freedom in North Korea than in the United States. These are your leading Republican voices, my friends.
Two polls show U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) off to a good start against challenger Scott Brown. I wish Mom Clutter was here to give her two cents on Brown. It's safe to assume she'd be "less than impressed."
Knowing how bad sugar is for our health, it might be worth checking out this book about a family's journey of going without sugar for a year.
Is the pain over on Wall Street, or has the selling just begun? I don't know the answer, but remember, Clutterheads, when everyone is running in the same direction, there's usually some money to be made by going the opposite way.
I've got to ask: Were the "selfies" that Pope Francis posed for also sponsored by Samsung?
Speaking of selfies, "Big Papi" showed up on SNL last night to discuss his recent trip to the White House:
It would certainly be great if the Boston Red Sox could come to terms with pitcher Jon Lester, but it's got to be a deal that makes sense, and if the 30-year old is looking for something like a six-year/$120 million deal, that may be an issue.
Sooo, Red Sox closer Koji Uehara is feeling shoulder stiffness in the same area that caused him to miss 66 games in 2012? Hopefully this won't be anything major, but it's a good thing the Sox signed reliever Edward Mujica in the off-season.
Don Draper and company are back. I wish it wasn't for only seven weeks, but even a little Mad Men is better than none.
It's show time. (pic via huffingtonpost.com)
Replacing David Letterman is the opportunity of a lifetime for Stephen Colbert, but it also certainly comes with some major risks.
Okay kids, that's going to do it for now. A capaella shows were huge events when I went to Skidmore College. Few things would bring the entire community together like these performances, and we had a number of entertaining groups on campus, with the Bandersnatchers as the kings of the hill. I'm pretty sure the Bandersnatchers disbanded at some point, which is really too bad, because they would have done a great job covering today's, "Song of the Day."
Thanks for stopping by, everyone. It was great to see you, as always. The rain is coming down now, so try to stay dry and enjoy the rest of your day. We'll be back again for more randomness soon, but for now, that's today's Clutter, and it's true, we are outta here.
