Late Night With Drew Carey

July 29, 2010

So, Drew Carey spent a fortune on personal trainers, plastic surgeons, stylists, colour consultants and tailors, and ended up looking so much like David Letterman that he was actually able to pull a Prince and the Pauper and just walk in one day and take over Late Night. An abject Letterman, meanwhile, was hired to be the new David Letterman wax statue at House of TV Guys in Niagara Falls after nobody would believe he was actually him. Price is Right was taken over by Dane Cook and was cancelled after three airings.

My Daughter II

July 29, 2010

The day before my baby girl turns nine, I offer up this photo (and it was a real 35mm photo, not digital) of her baby self examining the aftermath of a tornado that hit our neighbourhood. This was taken about an hour later. It knocked down dozens of century-old maple trees, including the one that crushed the police car in the background. She still gives me this look after a wave of destruction has rumbled through town, although now she tends to play a more hands-on role.

"I didn't do it."
