I think Keith and Mick both had their blood drained 30 years ago and were filled with formaldehyde.

Just for the record, the following is a transcript of Bill Maher's "wishing Dick Cheney dead" comment. The most telling thing, of course for you Friends of Ann, is he never said it:
MAHER: What about the people who got onto the HuffingtonPost – and these weren’t even the bloggers, these were just the “comments” section – who said they – they expressed regret that the attack on Dick Cheney failed. [laughter]

SCARBOROUGH: Right.

RIDLEY: More than regret.

MAHER: Well, what did they say? They said they wished—

RIDLEY: They said, we wish he would die. I mean, they were – it was direct hate language. [voices overlap]

MAHER: Okay, but—

FRANK: [overlapping] They said the bomb was – they said the bomb was wasted. [laughter] [applause]

MAHER: All right, but, seriously, if this isn’t China, shouldn’t you be able to say that? Why did Arianna have to – my girlfriend, I love her – but why did she take that off right away?

FRANK: [overlapping] Bill, Bill, first of all, you know, it’s clearly not China. You shouldn’t trivialize democracy. The fact that we are talking about if this was China, we couldn’t do it. And I don’t think we ought to sort of make this kind of comparison. It’s one thing to say that the administration made a stupid and unfair thing with the – with the soldiers. It’s another saying that makes us China. That’s just not sensible.

As far as the HuffingtonPost is concerned, I gather she decided, as the person who runs this, that she didn’t want to be associated with it. I think that’s her right. People are free to say whatever they want to say for her. I think the person in charge of the forum can say, “You know what? I don’t want to be associated with that. Say it somewhere else.”

SCARBOROUGH: Well, and not only that, if she had left it up, she would have opened herself up to attack. She took it down immediately. She was still attacked by people that took the hate language and tried to make it stick to her. And obviously, she’s trying to build to site where you can have reasoned debate. And it’s probably not in her best interests to allow that to stay there.

MAHER: But—

RIDLEY: Yeah, I don’t think it’s about having to take it off. It’s actually trying to be responsible and say, look, you can have a discourse and dialogue and say – it’s one thing to say you hate Dick Cheney—

SCARBOROUGH: Right.

RIDLEY: [overlapping]—which sort of applies to his politics. It’s another thing to say, “I’m sorry he didn’t die in an explosion.” And I think that—

MAHER: But – but, you should be able to say it.

FRANK: [overlapping] You can say it, you can—

MAHER: [overlapping] And, by the way—[voices overlap]—she took it off—

RIDLEY: [overlapping] You can’t use any language—

FRANK: [overlapping] Because it’s her forum!

RIDLEY: [overlapping] No, it’s not. You cannot have language that incites violence.

FRANK: [overlapping] Excuse me, Bill, can I ask you a question? Do you decide what the topics are for this show?

MAHER: Yeah, I decide the topics. They don’t go there. [laughter] And I—

FRANK: [overlapping] But you – you exercise control over the show—

MAHER: [overlapping] But, listen—

FRANK: [overlapping]—the way she does with her blog.

MAHER: [overlapping] But I have zero doubt that if Dick Cheney was not in power, people wouldn’t be dying needlessly tomorrow. [applause]

Why bother wasting time and mental energy wishing somebody's else death.

Closer to reality than you might think. Used to be that Keith Richards would "take the cure" before embarking on Stones tours. In his case, "the cure" consisted of going to some Swiss (I think) clinic to have his entire blood supply replaced so he could kick the heroin habit easier so he wouldn't get busted in some inconvenient place where the gendarmes might consider it rather fun to treat him to some home-style hospitality. Then, when the tour was done and he was safely home, he could smack the day away - and did.

I swear I am not making this up.

That's just sick. I think I'm feeling nauseous now.

Larry King, his career that is. Time for him to retire. He's become sooooo painfully senile on air.
