It's post-midnight here on the East Coast, so I guess I'm the first commenter of the new year!

Just wanted to wish you a healthy, happy, fabulous year Ken. Thanks for adding a consistently funny - and more than occasionally insightful - few minutes to each day.

To the other 'regulars' here ... you help make this blog a daily 'go-to' for me as well. Hope you're all having a wonderful time tonight (please travel safely!!), and that 2009 is a bright and bountiful year for all of you.

Greetings from Texas. They think it's still the late 90s.

BTW, WV: "chwooma" which I'm hopping to get as my free itunes novelty sound download -- having failed for the past half hour to figure out how to get the free rimshot and whawhawah sad trombone they've been hyping all morning on our Yahoo boot up. Told ya it was the 90's.

Happy New Year, Ken! Thanks for another year of laughs on your blog.

2008 was, indeed, a great championship year for the Philadelphia Phillies. History could also repeat itself. The last time the Phillies were world champs, the Eagles then went to the Super Bowl. Okay, so they lost, but let's not quibble the fine points. We managed to back into the playoffs with a few miracles, so, we could get to the big game and win this time.

Elvis could also come back from the dead.

Hey, hope springs eternal.

I'm impressed that you know Miss America's name. Ever since they ripped the pageant from my home town of Atlantic City, I forget to follow the tiara trail.

You wrote in one of your posts that you see a lot of movies this time of year because of your membership in the WGA. I was wondering if you have seen "Gran Torino" and, if so, what your thoughts on the film were?

Thank you for your time,
Ashley (Oklahoma)

Mary Stella: Have you forgotten that Elvis has already returned from the dead? It was in 2007, when he performed with Celine Dion on American Idol.
