With all the concerns abound about Health Care Reform, unemployment, the economy, and the ongoing military actions overseas; here's a brief look at some other events of the past week.

*A happy Rosh Hashanah for those who believe that today is the start of year 5770 year.
*After their flubs over the past weekend, some are now joking that Kanye West and Serena Williams have now embarked upon "The 2009 Apology Tour" together.
*The Guiding Light ended a 72 year run between radio and television September 18th as CBS canceled the long time soap opera. Reruns of The Price Is Right will be shown in that time slot for a couple of weeks until a new version of Let's Make A Deal, to be hosted by comedian Wayne Brady, is ready to premiere in October.
*The Emmy Awards will be presented tomorrow night.

Unfortunately this past, we have lost a couple of notable entertainers.
*Mary Travers, of the classic music trio Peter, Paul, and Mary; who sang on such hits as Puff the Magic Dragon and Blowin' In The Wind.
*Patrick Swayze, noted for acting in such memorable films as Dirty Dancing and Ghost.
*Henry Gibson, a comedic stalwart of (Dan) Rowan and (Dick) Martin's Laugh-In and most recently had a recurring role on Boston Legal.
