News of the Day -- Wednesday, April 30

+ AOL did a ranking of their top 50 TV comedies of all time. I guess I agree with most of them, although I would like to have a little love for "The Addams Family," "The Monkees" and Jack Benny's half-hour show, which still has the power to make me weep with laughter.

+ Also pilfered from USA Today's Pop Candy blog, this item about J.D. Salinger putting on his cranky pants over "Raiders of the Lost Ark." I bet Holden Caulfield would have liked it.

+ My friend Ms. C sent me this item on an R2D2 mechanics manual t-shirt and I think I love it:

Did anyone, by the way, see that terrible "Star Wars"-themed "Deal or No Deal" earlier this week? Wow. It just made me sad. I think it made special guest Carrie Fisher sad, too.

Hmmm, the list is good though I don't necessarily agree with the order -- of course I never do on lists.

But, it got me to hoping for a Best TV Spinoff list.

Has J.D. Salinger ever actually taken OFF his cranky pants?

Good point. And kinda scary to imagine.

Heck yes, Modern Gal. That'd be a great list.
