Morning Coffee (9/22/10)Morning Coffee
It's Wednesday. Yesterday, the Senate dashed all our hopes and dreams (heh) by voting down the DREAM Act and not repealing DADT. Sigh. Also, Larry Summers is leaving.
In TV land, premiere week continues, and it's looking like the first fatality may be Lone Star, which was very, very good, but which no one watched. Why, Nielson families, why???
The SEO issue with $#*! My Dad Says had occurred to me, but I hadn't even thought about not being able to type the name on a DVR remote. Heeeeee.
