It seems like everyone I know has been complaining about how long this week has felt to them. I agree, but for different reasons. For them, it’s probably the gloomy weather we’ve had in my area that is getting people down, making time pass slower. For me, it’s because I’m off next week. You know that last week before vacation, where you’re counting down the days until you’re out. That’s where I’ve been all week, and it’s way worse than your average slow week. If you were busy getting your breasts insured, odds are you missed it.

On “Dancing with the Stars” this week, Nancy Grace’s nipple slipped out of whatever she was wearing while she danced. This caused quite a scandal, because high school boy out there has been dying to see Nancy Grace’s boobs, her old, ragged boobs. Seeking to

The Boston Red Sox, ug, the Boston Red Sox. In August, they were on top of the world, and clearly going into the playoffs with a pretty formidable lineup.

Sox completed their slide out of the playoff picture in the last game of the season, when they lost to the Baltimore Orioles (!) and the Tampa Bay Rays won in extra innings after being down 7-0 earlier in the game. In other news, Boston finally feels like Boston again.

Rezwan Ferdaus, a Boston-area man, was arrested this week after the FBI said that he was plotting to fly explosives-laden model airplanes into the Capitol building and the Pentagon. Man, the Boy Scout badges are way more advanced than when I was a kid.
