‘A spoonful of sugar...’

HOLLYWOOD – God bless America, and how’s everybody?

Soap Opera Digest reported talk shows have greatly reduced the number of soap operas on the air. That world just marked the death of the longtime star of The Young and the Restless Kristoff St. John. He’s survived by three ex-wives, seven mistresses, nine illegitimate children and an evil twin.

President Trump’s guests in the House gallery during the State of the Union Tuesday included a little boy named Joshua Trump who’s been bullied at school because of his name. He’s okay now. To make the boy feel less sad about his name, they sat him next to Billy Hitler and Hillary bin Laden.

The White House announced last week that President Trump donated his third-quarter salary of one hundred thousand dollars to charity. They reported the entire one hundred grand went to a group which conducts alcoholism research. Brett Kavanaugh said he would’ve done it for half that.

President Trump gave his State of the Union speech on Tuesday and again discussed border security and what he felt was the need for a border wall with Mexico. I say why not give it a try? Trump is so good at dividing us from each other, dividing us from Mexico should be a piece of cake.

Michael Jackson’s family denounced the lurid Jackson documentary for HBO that premiered at Sundance. He was greatly loved by young people. The day that Michael Jackson died, dozens of kids showed up at the front gates at Neverland, and after a while, the police arrived and let them out.
