A COMIC Week to Remember – from San Diego to NYC to London

Goodbye COMIC CON 2013!  Lots of Indiana Joneses and Darth Vaders are headed home to gin up new costumes for C-C 2014.

This was a hot week: as stock indices gyrated up and down walls of worry, trains and airplanes crunched down or tragically piled up and we endured dog days of summer.

After COMIC CON departed – I found chuckles in other places: such as – Mayor Bob Filner, mayoral wannabe Tony Weiner and the new regal arrival, Prince George, who gave us ponderables this week.

The City of San Diego hasn’t ever had a mayor like Bob Filner; though we citizens have seen misbehavior from recent predecessors. My nickel bet is that Mayor Filner, with social issues, will be a streetfighter until the bitter end of protracted recall and legal proceedings.  What are our tax dollars for anyway?

I lose lotsa nickels, as our under seige Mayor Filner is making a major announcement in less than an hour to our fair city. We’ll see.One news station had a bit of a problem – mistaking Filner for his predecessor – http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2013/Jul/12/mayor-filner-sanders-resign-error-abc-news/

Please don’t get me wrong – the Filner headlock, intimate remarks and actions with are totally wrong. 

Former Congressman Anthony Weiner, and wannabe Mayor of the Big Apple probably didn’t want this type of publicity from The Atlantic or New Yorker Magazine.  Yet Bill Clinton survived his own cover. Perhaps ANY political Press is good Press?  http://www.theatlantic.com/sexes/archive/2013/07/penis-jokes-on-the-cover-of-the-new-yorker-a-complete-history/278135/  ???  What a coincidence that Weiner’s wife and Bill Clinton’s wife are associates.

Lastly – What a good uncle Prince Harry was!  His humor for new nephew George was typically British (I’ll be sure to show him a good time). As was Tracy Mitchell’s, the woman cabby’s best “behaviour” comments on national news.

And how about this interesting painting of Kate and her kingly son? http://www.cafemom.com/articles/baby/158402/kate_middleton_royal_babys_first?utm_medium=sem2&utm_campaign=prism&utm_source=outbrain&utm_content=0.


Humor is good medicine – we’ll see what the Filner news conference brings.
