RIP Tony Curtis.  Yes, there’s a story to go along with the photo.  From 1990-1994, I produced the Mark & Brian Show at KLOS in Los Angeles.  Each year, we’d put on a ridiculously extravagent Christmas show.  Tony Curtis had appeared on the show to promote his book and, if memory serves, he returned to read “Twas the Night Before Christmas” at the Christmas show.

Tony took a liking to me.  His publicist must have given him my phone number, as Tony was relentless in his pursuit.  I finally had to tell him that I simply wasn’t interested.  He took it like a gentleman and, a few months later, married a young, dark haired attorney who looked somewhat like me.  I still have this picture, and the memories….

On today’s show, Truthout‘s Jason Leopold guested to tell us about his latest bombshell story, “DOJ Refuses to Revoke BP’s Probation Over Safety Violations at Texas City Refinery.”

Plus news from TRNS, and John Fugelsang too!

And a last minute addition to the show… BradBlog‘s Brad Friedman joined in to talk about the latest illegal antics from James “Pimp” O’Keefe.

If you happen to be in South Florida, I’ll be yard sale-ing this Saturday at Coral Springs’ annual Trash to Treasure community sale.  It’s at Mullins Park (right near the Coral Springs Center for the Arts on 29th Street) starts at around 8am and goes until 11ish.  For those of you not attending the sale, I’m sure you’ll be in Washington DC at the One Nation march and rally!

I’ll talk to you Monday, when my guests will be Jayne King of the Green Party of Florida, and Crooks & Liars’ Nicole Belle- who watches the Sunday talking head shows and tell us what happened in our weekly Fools on the Hill segment.
