MB finished third--third! and with a minus total to boot--in the dumbed-down version of Jeopardy! during that TV quiz show's Washington Power People (or some such nonsense) tournament. As a result of her bringin'-up-the-rear performance, every war orphan in a Somalian village now owes the producers a Jeopardy! home game.

I believe that was the same round-robin in which Oliver "Flint" Stone bested Wolf "In Chic Clothing" Blitzer in a heat that saw Arianna Huffington completing the trifecta. Wolf got blitzed in the Carter Administration category, where his ignorance was positively breathtaking (didn't he get paid to cover that beat?). I think he wore the golden sombrero for his four buzz-ins ("Who is Bert Lance?" D'oh!).

Not being able to gape every morning at flame-tressed La Liz and the Sweater Puppies has made for a l-o-o-o-ng summer. Liz in action:

Don't know how it came about, but I watched Breast Whisperer, er Ghost Whisperer last night. God, it's right out of Ernie Kovacs' worstseller Zoomar --- breast-flattering T-V, milking them for all they're worth. It's snowing out ? No matter, we'll strap JLH into a low-cut, monokini anorak and heels. :faint:

Your veiled allusion to Robert Klein's routine about his Jeopardy! appearance notwithstanding, do you recall what worthy cause MB was playing on behalf of? Was it in fact Somalia relief?

Overt Lay,

Please allow me my allusions until the day I leave this veil of tiers ... er sump'm. :confused:

Was Maria playing to support our troops during that invasion of Grenada (or Libya or Panama or wherever) affectionately referred to as "Operation Just Because?"

I either didn't notice or don't remember (in fact, I don't even remember if I noticed :confused: ). Maybe Big Brothers/Big Sisters. In any case, I'm sure all the causes were worthy, and all benefited--save Ms. Bartiromo's reputation.

Apologies to Mr. Klein, but my acknowledgment got smothered somewhere south of Ms. Claman's russet mane. Besides, I figured that, with everyone's gaze directed elsewhere, nobody would notice anyway. ;)

While I've always found the Italian Bartiromo a bit too Italian for my liking, I discover that she was a coat check girl in her parents restaurant and as I've always had an affinity for coat check girls I am prepared to re-think my take.

Amongst the gems she doled out on her Jeopardy appearance which ended with a donated $K for her charitable involvement in Final Jeopardy which she blew down to $300 as a result of her answer of Platinum for Element 79 on the Periodic Table when the answer was Gold, were:

Category: The Capital, for $100
A: In 1989 hundreds of pro-democracy demonstrators were killed by the military at Tiananmen Square in this capital.
Q: Maria buzzes in and makes a face for five seconds. A five second face, to her dismay, is incorrect. Armed with a functioning buzzer, Maria prepares to actually verbalize a question next time.

Category: The Mole, for $200
A: Most moles destroy gardens & lawns searching for insect larvae or these “global” worms.
Q: Maria buzzes quickly and spurts out “Computer worms! What is computer worms.” Both are incorrect, and suggest recent head trauma. The correct question, especially with the “GLOBAL” hint, is “What are EARTH worms?”

Category: N”AA”CP, for $800 (the category was a stupidly irrelevant shout out to Mfume that meant all questions have a double A in them, like the word aardvark)

A: “Blah, blah, blah…the nation’s first fashion magazine.”
Q: Maria buzzes, “What is Vogue?” Alex shoots her down. Anderson chimes in with the answer “Harper’s Bazaar,” because it is the only fashion magazine with 15,000 “A”s in its title. He is, remarkably, correct. Alex reminds the contestants that all answers must have those two As in them. Maria acts as if the mysteries of the universe have just been unveiled to her.

:lol: Great stuff, Mack--especially your riffs on Ms. Butter-Oh!-Mo'! I'm amazed she didn't buzz in with "Who made the egg salad sandwiches?"

Toe, about that "russet mane" "crack": I wasn't thinking THAT far south :blush: --or of any mane other than what's visible in La Liz's slo-mo squeeze play (not that you're likely to notice her capital coif, as the attention-grabber is clearly elsewhere). You naughty, naughty boy! :kiss: Besides, how do YOU know she's a "real" redhead? :p

Lizzy & Maria

If recollection serves me as well as a shaken M'Tini, Falc has trumpeted his affectation for LizC B4 and I still scratch the top O' my head wondering the nuanced soruce of his longing for the "take it the bank" RedHeaded talking head donning the 60's style "cross your heart bra".

Do I read correctly FRidge that Bono will be an Irish rocking orator at your Inland Empired institution?

That is a fac', Mack. Legion d'Honneur recipient Bono shall indeed grace us with his presence this coming October 30.

Just this past Tuesday, Gore Vidal payed us a visit. He projected his familiar haughty, precious, irascible manner before "town and gown" alike--or so I hear; I caught only the last few minutes of the Q & A that followed his act. (I was alarmed to see how frail Vidal's become--gaunt and wheelchair-bound). I spend the better part of my on-campus time, however, savoring the sweetest plum of my career: for the past several weeks, my near-constant companion has been a man who for more than 50 years has used his wit, courage, and probity (and, yes, skepticism) to protect our freedom--and, often at great personal sacrifice, to reveal even the most unpleasant of truths. Honored and blessed (undeservedly so) though I am to know him, out of respect for his privacy I'll refrain from dropping his name in a public forum such as this one--especially since his is a handle I'm sure you'd recognize.

Back on topic: Congrats, Mack, for hitting the twin double, and especially for sharing the dividends.:jump: As to your wondering of my fixation for La Liz, the answer may lie in your conception of her as a "talking HEAD." Fact is, while I appreciate her bright mien, piercing gaze, alabaster skin, dulcet voice, and Sorbonne-honed intellect, it's not her head that has me so enrapt! :blush: ;)

For me, GoreV was merely a character who appeared on the likes of The Dick Cavett Show or with the like minded/lifestyled MervG posturing with bumptious opinions of an American society of which he was far removed. After having seen the goings on of Raquel Welch's character in the dotty film Myra Breckinridge, I quickly gave him a tip of the cap for his shear flagitiousness. Not to mention his involvement in Caligula.

I'd be willing to venture a guess of your recent comrade though appreciate your position of his innomination.

In a time when the vogue of fashion calls for spray-on tans the alabaster complexion of Lizzy is sound enough reason for your/her well rounded enrapture.

Maria's ratings have been in the toilet for years. She's the equivalent of an over-the-hill star athlete who found a desperate team to sign her to a big contract.

Of course, CNBC will probably give her spot to Cramer as they did with Erin Burnett's. Apparently CNBC viewers can't get enough of Cramer's bloviating. For me, Cramer is either a "mute" or a channel change

I miss Lou Rukeyser interviewing John Templeton, Marty Zweig etc...

Wall St Week was my favorite financial show ever.

I'll never forget the show right after the 1987 crash. The discussion was about the impact the crash would have on the economy and whether it would lead to a recession or depression. John Templeton was interviewed via phone because he was in the Bahamas. He was totally composed, thinking long term, and looking for bargains. Some of the other panelists were clearly close to panic.

Lou asked Marty Zweig if we were going to have another depression.

Marty was so upset he said, "Only if we are lucky". :lol:

I was hysterical because Marty was generally thoughtful and in fact had even called the crash. Now he looked close to jumping because he thought the world was about to melt down.

Quite often actually, all depends on the situation/rumor/news and sometimes its the reversal/contrarian play I will look for. Many times by the time cnbc gets to something, one of my scanners had already picked up the action. Cramer is usually good for a quick scalp or 2 during the early session also.
