Rant #265: Random Rants
Here is a look at some random rants, interesting tidbits that don't deserve an entire rant devoted to them.
Gary Coleman Takes a Fall: Yes, the beloved (and infamous) former child star reportedly took a fall at his home, and sustained a head injury. The injury is a serious one, and the last I heard, he was in critical condition. He is currently in a surgical ICU in a Utah hospital.
Once again, the "Diff'rent Strokes" saga continues.
What makes it all the more bizarre is that this happened on former co-star Todd Bridges' birthday!
Dr. Beach Makes His Best Beach Picks: Stephen P. Leatherman, who calls himself "Dr. Beach" (if he has a son, is he "son of a Beach?"), annually makes his picks for the country's best beaches, and this year, he has chosen Coopers Beach, Southampton, Long Island, as his favorite.
Looking down the list, he doesn't pick beaches that the general public can go to--all of these beaches are pretty exclusive. I don't see Jones Beach on there, if you get my drift.
My favorite beach: my backyard, with our above-ground pool.
PETA's "Horror" Idea: The People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) organization has asked to lease the notorious "Amityville Horror" house on Long Island to put up an exhibit to show people the real-life horrors that humans inflict on animals.
One of the exhibits that the organization would like to have in the house is metal and concrete pig gestation crate. Each child visiting the exhibit would be given a "crazed and knife-wielding Ronald McDonald doll."
Yes, somehow, I think people will line up around the block to see first-hand how animals are tortured. Heck, don't just bring the kids, bring your grandparents, aunts uncles, even bring your pets to see what they escaped when you adopted them.
I will take the day off, like many of you, on Monday, but I will be back on Tuesday. Have a good holiday.
