No apology needed. Where he chooses to put his, er . . club . . is a private matter between him and his wife. The public and press can STFU and go deal with their own baggage.

Golfer Tiger Woods apologized Wednesday for "transgressions" that let his family down -- the same day a gossip magazine published a report alleging he had an affair.

On the phone, on hold, for 51 minutes now . . but thank God "my call is important to [them]".

I bought Smiley a gumball from a quarter machine. He rejected it when I brought it home, pointing to his teeth and starting a fit. Ten minutes later I asked if we were cool. "na-uh," he said, patting his breast. "ooo bwoke my [h]eart". Jeez, what a momma's boy lol

If you read today's Journal-Sentinel, you'll know that three of the 4 teens in this video were killed just hours later in an East Troy car accident; the fourth, the Andy mentioned in the title, is hospitalized with severe head injuries. RIP.

An unusually quiet and Hallmark-y morning, with Lisa sitting with the two oldest girls in the living room, teaching them to sew so they can make their own costumes from some old sheets they found. Oh, and 'Bama crushed Florida. What a nice weekend so far.

Took the kids to school, went to Mass (Feast of the Immaculate Conception), shoveled my walk, now writing and working up the nerve to hit the road to get some things done. Or, I may nap. Either/or.

Just gave a hitchiker a ride, which would be a first for me. He came begging for a lift at a gas station, drunk and stranded at 7 at night. Gotta love the South Side.

Lisa broke her glasses, I lost five pages of newly written text due to gremlins in the computer, it's snowing, and As The World Turns was cancelled. :(

Spent all evening getting the house ready for a visit from Smiley's speech therapist, only to have her cxl this morning because of illness. Good luck keeping this house clean until the rescheduled appt.

I finally got around to watching Glee's fall finale. GREAT episode - I literally had a smile on my face beginning to end.

Anyone live/work in Menominee Falls? I have a Xmas present to pick up but I'm not relishing a 60 minute round trip in my car . . .

So Smiley is wrapping presents with Lisa at the dining room table, and he spots the Zuzu pets we've kept hidden. Speech problems? Not today "Zuhzu Pets!" he yells, inspiring his two year old sister to run around the house repeating news of the sighting.

Just received word I'll be in the Journal again on Christmas Day. You've got plenty of notice, so no excuses for not buying a paper that day :) That'll be the 13th or 14th column of the year for me. Kinda neat it's happened so often I've lost count.

Barnes and Noble has at least OK'd "Merry Christmas", after what I'm told were a few years of PC "Happy Holidays!". But note that while their current gift card selection rightly includes a menorah for Hannukah none - not one of the cards I've seen - includes anything but secular depictions of Christmas. Santa, snowflake, nutcracker, odd Christmas rabbit, winter scene. Baby in a manger? Naw - but after all, who thinks of Jesus at this time of year? December 20, 2009 at 1:09 pm Friends

I'm loving the coverage in Minnesota! Childress tried to bench Favre in last nights game, Favre refused (!) and words have been exchanged in the press. The Star-Tribune is abuzzin'. Hillbilly done gone prima donna again. Sit back and enjoy folks, sit back and enjoy!

[she would appear, do horribly and come off as a mean spirited woman, and essentially tank her career]

So a businessman books into a travel lodge and says to the desk clerk "I hope the porn Channel is disabled". The clerk looks disgusted and replies "No, its ordinary porn you sick bastard!"

Publicist Billy Laurence says Reed-Amini died Thursday at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica after a two-year battle with breast cancer.

I think it's appalling that 'legitimate' media outlets like CNN and CBS are using gossip sites like TMZ as official sources and then running pieces with no legitimacy . . do I think Brittany Murphy died of drugs? Probably. But I wouldn't write a headline piece about it just because a quack on TMZ (who didn't know her or work on the case) said it "must have been drugs".

Mike Leach was the best thing to happen to Lubbock since Buddy Holly. Now, thanks to a Daddy who works for ESPN and isn't happy that his son is nothing more than a mediocre, part time college player, the man is out of a job. Ugh.

Texas Tech has fired football coach Mike Leach.
