Salon has by far the funniest and most on point break down of the whole Leno/Conan debacle on NBC. My favorite quote: “There’s a collective scorn for the way that NBC has so openly pooped on its audience like Triumph the Insult Dog: replacing its 10 p.m. lineup with five nights of cheap, clunky Jay Leno shows because they’re easier than, I don’t know, creating something new that doesn’t suck? Well, f#ck you, too.”
I was fortunate enough to be born in the decade that produced the BEST music. (That’s the 1970’s for those that don’t know. Sure I was born in 1979, but it still counts.) One of the booming voices of that era and surely someone whose songs were the soundtrack to countless conceptions was Teddy Pendergrass. Teddy P passed away and the New York Times provided a lovely and respectful obituary to mark his transition.
