  1. Louis – I found an item on the internet about your bumping into Red Jackman a year or so ago. Red is an old friend of mine – I quaffed many a drink with him at the 55 and other watering holes. I visited him in Staten Island 6-7 years ago, but unfortunately lost his address, phone # etc. Do you by any chance have an email or phone number for him? I’m only in New York for a few days before returning to Texas and I’d love to see Red.

    Thanks,
    Ray Hatch

  2. CBC ombudsman says O’Leary’s ‘nutbar’ remark violated journalistic standards

    Refreshing from a punitive POV, but I’m not sure how it matters: O’Leary isn’t a journalist (literally).

  3. Could you imagine US network hosts getting called out by their networks for something as small as calling somebody a name? That’s on the polite end of the shit talking hosts do on most shows. I was surprised at how much Hedges got to talk.

  4. ‘who?’ nails it @ 5:47. I am afraid that the putative exchange would have be remaindered celluloid on the cutting room floor- a la Cinema Paradisio- on any other network outlet.

    I have been wanting to thank Louis for his efforts here on UM. It has become a daily habit with me and I find myself checking back often over the course of a day to see what might be newly posted. The proverbial ‘guy you’d want to have a beer with’, for me.. that’s Louis!

    Thanks for your labour of love. It shows!
