Since last Friday, I started to include the date in the daily Bag of Randomness post title. I thought someone would have commented on it by now.
I was curious as to why Jimmy Carter wasn’t part of the presidential bit on Letterman’s finale, and then I remembered about ten days ago it was reported the 90-year-old flew back early from Guyana in an election-monitoring trip. I’m not sure how early they started working on the taped bit, but he must be pretty ill not to do a ten-second video.
One of my Canadian readers told me all of Canada missed the first five minutes of the Letterman finale – The rules up here for TV networks is that if a show is on a US network and a Canadian network at the same time then we must watch the Canadian feed and only get Canadian commercials….the famous example is the Super Bowl every year…we don’t get to see your commercials. Well tonight OMNI, the Canadian network that shows Letterman cut from the show at 12:37 for five minutes so we were watching another show….even on the CBS channel….

I didn’t catch a lot of that Red Nose Day telethon, but I did catch U2 and then Coldplay working with the ‘Game of Thrones’ cast. The best part of that skit was Jon Snow singing “Wildling” to the tune of “Wild Thing” to his red-headed beauty, Ygritte.
Today’s does of ‘MURCIA – A Civilian’s Guide To The U.S. Military – I knew a lot of this stuff already, but I wasn’t aware the Coast Guard moved from under the Department of Defense to Homeland Security.
