<<Subject: Fox TV show would like to talk with you

I'm a casting director for the hit Fox show "Trading Spouses" and we're looking for a well-to-do urban family to come onto the show. The family must be a husband and wife and at least one child between the ages of 6 and 18, and no children under the age of 6. It helps if the family (especially the mom) is colorful and with strong personalities. The family selected that appears on the show receives up to $50,000 for a 7-10 day shoot.>>

IN MEMORIAM: ALEX TOTH

Images_2Cartoonist Alex Toth passed away recently at age 77. In a long career, Toth did character designs for such animated shows as "Space Ghost" and one of our all-time favorites from the late 60s, "The Herculoids." If you don't recall the Herculoids, they were a kind of alien/prehistoric Fantastic Four* - a gang of creatures, each with a different power or skill (including Gleep and Gloop, shameless knockoffs of Al Capp's Shmoo), who teamed up to thwart evil threats to the planet Quasar and protect their human friends, Zandor, Tarno, and Dara.

THIS IS NO JOKE: FELLOW WOULD DRINK (DECAF) ICED COFFEE EVERY DAY IF ANYONE WOULD LET HIM

Starbucks has apparently decided to put its public image at risk and try to make a few bucks hooking the next generation on its overpriced caffeine delivery systems: While the company has always claimed a longstanding policy of not marketing to young people, new products like Bananas & Creme Frappuccinos - recently launched at the Phoenix Zoo (!) - are quite understandably making people wonder about the company's evil plans for our youth.
