Guess who I saw on TV today - Your good friend *****!

Yup. 'Tis true. Clicked onto him on ABC News Now this afternoon. He was being interviewed. He looked good. Was calm. I just caught the last two minutes or so, what he said I didn't have a complaint with. Don't ask me what he said, I don't remember now.

Sorry I couldn't have told you earlier, I know some of you would have wanted to set your DVR's so you would get the whole scoop.

I was wondering what happened to him and when he was going to show up again.

Telly, I also managed to catch only the last minute or so of the interview. I agree he looked remarkably calm, especially when you consider the circumstances.

I am surprised - - for some reason I thought he was broke or nearly so.

No!

But I'll clarify... on this website, 5 consecutive asterisks like this: ***** is the universal name for he-whose-name-shall-never-be-mentioned. And no links, either.

Some of the things (I said "some") ***** has said I don't have a problem with. And never before or since have I seen an internet poster anywhere take so much incoming fire, and always keep his cool and come back. But he is like the tar-baby in the Brer Rabbit story. In no time at all, everyone is stuck in the tar, tar is everywhere, and it just won't let go.
The only solvent to tar was a chemical called "banning".

His hair did look good, CuppaJoe! It's funny you mentioned that, as it left an impression with me after the video clip was over.

The cable channel, ABC News Now was one I just click over, never looked at it before for any length of time. But in clicking past it, there he was!

Ah. Five asterisks instead of nine to distinguish him from Voldemort. Got it.

Nords? No, wait, his hair does look bad?

JGalt? His hair was perfect.

Was he a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's? Or maybe the governor of Texas?

Hmmm - to be polite tv seems to suit his personna more so than the internet as his media of communication.
