Changing Channels

First off, I would like to take a sentence or two to thank everyone reading this blog for its major growth the last few days.

Readership has turned from the teens into the hundreds per day, and I am humbled and grateful for that.

OK…tough segue here but had to take a moment to comment on the passing of Peter Falk.

Falk was like an old friend, an old familiar pair of slippers to ease into.

Although he is on the radio, and not TV, WABC’s Mark Simone has become that way for me when he fills in for Sean Hannity during the week or especially on his Saturday a.m. show on the New York station (

Simone will pay tribute to his dear friend on tomorrow’s 7a-10a  broadcast. One class act appreciating another … good stuff!

Tatum O’Neal also put herself in a bad position of talking about the situation on CBS’ The Talk.
