*Tonight is Halloween. Watch out for all the Trick or Treaters roaming about!
*Tonight is also when Daylight Saving Time ends. Don't forget to set your clocks back one hour or you'll be early to everything Sunday.
*Another 10 million anti-H1N1 vaccines are being prepared for distribution.
*Larry Winten may be the new owner of the Paragon Inn in New Mexico, but it seems like he has some old fashioned management techniques. It was recently revealed in an Associated Press report that he told all his Hispanic employees to Angelize their names (John for Juan, etc.) and to stop speaking Spanish while on duty. You can imagine the hassles he's received since then.
*The ads calling for "proper" health care reform from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have been joined by new petitions from a group calling themselves "Seniors over 60" who are not only targeting specific Senators and Congressmen, but claiming that whatever version of a health care reform bill does become law will rob Medicaid and Medicare to pay for it.
People, we have been over this before! The anti-health care reform propaganda can be easily debunked at and other reputable websites!
*Just in time for Halloween, Forbes magazine has released its list of the richest dead celebrities, based upon how much their respective estates have made. The top five are:
5. J. R. R. Tolkien, based upon the Lord of the Ring movie franchise
4. Elvis Presley
3. Michael Jackson
2. Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein for the revivals of some of their more popular Broadway musicals over the last decade, and
1. Yves Saint Laurent, whose fashion empire continues on without him.
*In Sports, the World Series moves to Philadelphia for Game 3 Saturday night, with the series tied at a game each between the National League Phillies and the American League New York Yankees.
