So now I go Bronco. Or Caprice. Remind me to tell you my former locktician's theory about black men who drive white cars one day.
George touched on the D.C. sniper thing a few days back. Oliver has mentioned it a few times, too. Could lie and say I wish I had something to add, but I don't. There's the irony of all of us buying the line that it had to be a crazed white guy, but there's only so much sarcastic (supposed) humor to be wrung from multiple deaths.
Unless it's slow car chase white Bronco jokes, of course.
Christopher Priest mentioned losing some respect for David Letterman when Dave finally gave in and started doing OJ jokes along with the rest of the cool kids.
Letterman, sadly, succumbed to OJ jokes after first taking the high ground, shutting guest Howard Stern down with the withering disclaimer, "Double murders just don't crack me up the way they used to." Thunderous and sustained applause. Letterman forced Stern to keep his coat closed, to cover a Simpson parody tee-shirt, and Letterman has not, to my knowledge, ever re-run that segment. I wish he'd stuck to his guns, letting Leno be the jerk, but after a few test shots across the bow, Dave was fully in the Simpson gag reel, though still not to the gutter level of Leno.
Rarely watch Letterman, Leno or Conan, and I don't have a tv at the moment -- anyone want to tape "Angel" for me tonight? I'll be your friend -- so I gots no clue if they've been doing jokes about the sniper lately.
Don't especially want to find out, to be honest. I'm still catching up on reading various sites. There could be something utterly hilarious out there, and any pointers or suggestions are welcome.
Just not seeing anything funny about people dying right now.
