Academy Award “humor”

I didn’t watch the Oscars (in fact, I haven’t seen any of the nominated films yet) but I noticed this bit of reporting from nbcnews:

Later in the show, MacFarlane complimented Daniel Day-Lewis’ performance in “Lincoln,” and said that “the actor who really got inside Lincoln’s head was John Wilkes Booth.” The reference to Lincoln’s assassin didn’t go over well.

Anybody want Purple?

Purple is one of the two strays I feed. There’s really nothing more I can do for Chako except feed her, because she is feral. I can sometimes nose bump her but that’s it. I can’t touch her at all.

But Purple has become quite tame. I can touch him, stroke him, he even comes partway into my house into the genkan area. He has quite a tame and friendly personality.

Surely someone who can keep cats can come by and take him home? Contact me if interested.
