Comedy Show Adds Insult to Injury

03-10-09

punishment.

Michigan residents are gearing up this spring to look fear in the face: not only are they experiencing one of the nation’s highest levels of unemployment, but Jay Leno is coming to town.

On April 7, Leno will host a free comedy show entitled, “Jay’s Comedy Stimulus Plan” for Detroit residents that are out of work. To obtain a free ticket you simply have to say you’re unemployed.

A sampling of this morning’s headlines tells me Jay’s popular headline bit may be a little more tough to pass off than usual. Here’s hoping there’s a typo in the mattress sale section!!

caring is creepy,

temp.

Listening to: The sound of silence. And now the Simon and Garfunkel song.

On my mind: Book of activist poems from my childhood to be published soon. First up: “Where’s Daddy Now” my 9 year old exploration of teen pregnancy.
