RIP Marcia Strassman, who appeared in M*A*S*H and Honey I Shrunk the Kids as well as my favorite as Julie Kotter in Welcome Back, Kotter.

I missed this initially, but last week Joan Quigley, famed adviser in the Reagan administration, passed away at 87:

Genuinely sad. Those guys ruled. I listened to car talk often even though I'm not that into cars.

Car Talk best NPR show by far. They were so great together. Don't drive like my brother!

I love when Dom chose Tim McGraw's Indian Outlaw in worst songs draft. Looking back on Tim McGraw, I see nothing that discerns him from the oft-ridiculed Billy Ray Cyrus.

I actually chose "Don't Take the Girl." Someone else mentioned "Indian Outlaw."

1) Made a lot more money

2) Married a hotter/more famous woman

3) Didn't kinda pimp out his daughter

4) I never slept with Billy Ray Cyrus' manager

Taylor Swift never wrote a song praising Billy Ray.

Tim McGraw >>> Billy Ray, cmon. Indian Outlaw is a cheesy delight. Also Tim McGraw is Taylor Swift's best song, before her innocence was lost.

Yeah. My only complaints for that concert though were the screaming and how much it lightened my wallet.

How old are your kids?

My kids still like TS, but she's way down on the list now. They are 12 and 14 (15 in about a week).

Also, TS has changed a lot in the last few years.

She's 11, boy is 8.

She's starting to go bat**** with her surging hormones now. Who knows what she'll be into.

Death metal, probably.

I took my 10 yr. old niece and her friend to a Taylor Swift concert two years ago. It was awesome. And no "empowering" songs about Taylor's butt or how she works day ass, so I'm happy there is at least one half decent famous role model singer out there.

I listened to this and all the other NPR bits I could find, and they damn near made me cry. Obv laughed a lot too. We need more men like this.
