Spotlight: Larry Flynt and More

Hustler magazine owner and founder, Larry Flynt, was rushed to a Los Angeles-area hospital on Saturday, moaning in pain. His condition remains a mystery.

The publishing mogul, whose media empire includes the magazine, novelty shops and a gentleman's club, is paralyzed from the waist down, the result of a 1978 assassination attempt. He is 66-years-old.

The anticipation remains high for Apple CEO and founder Steve Jobs' expected return to work after a six-month leave of absence due to failing health. While neither Jobs, nor his handlers, have offered details to the technology guru's medical condition, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that Jobs received a liver transplant two months ago at a Tennessee hospital.

An article on cnn.com sheds some light on the "what ifs" of Jobs return to his booming company, which on Friday released the latest version of its popular mobile-PDA, the iphone. Some believe the company still needs Jobs to create and sell new products, while others say Apple is preparing to transition leadership and will remain an industry leader.

The saga for cancer patient Farrah Fawcett continues. People.com is reporting that Ryan O'Neal, Fawcett's long-time off-again-on-again love, has asked the blonde beauty to marry him. O'Neal told Barbara Walters, in an interview scheduled to air this Friday on ABC's 20/20, that Fawcett, who is deteriorating from cancer, agreed to the proposal.

I wish I had paid to subscribe to the Washington Post just so I could cancel it after reading this morbid, disturbing, ugly, ghoulish blog. The Washington Post is supposed to be a first class news organization this is the lowest of internet vulture-atti. I am completely disgusted and all of you should be ashamed of yourselves. Be prepared when the day comes? Yes. But to publish updates on people you think might be dead soon is just disgusting.

For my part, I love this blog. There are standards as to the proper reporting of news, and I think those standards keep the Post a top notch paper. This blog, which I often find funny, informative, and utterly unconventional, keeps the standard reporting honest and permits the mind to wander off the garden path in whimsical fashion.
