Recently, my cat Ariel – who I’d had for 17 years – died. She wasn’t the cuddliest cat, for a long time she was overweight and in her later years she developed some unpleasant personal habits, which I won’t detail here. However, for 17 years she was there every time I came home and was by my side through lots of good times and bad times.
But I didn’t realize until late in her life that she had a sense of humor! Turns out that once the camera was on she shined! So, in honor of her memory, I’d like to relive a Cup O Politics video that Steve Garfield and I made last year featuring Ariel (and my other cat Hazel). Ariel is the white cat featured on the title screen…
Adios, little mermaid! We’ll never forget you.

How hot has it been in the Northeastern United States this week, you ask? So hot that David Letterman is retelling jokes that I’ve written for him.
To wit, on Monday’s Late Show (7/21/08) Dave retold this little ditty that he originally told on 6/10/08:
It was hot and humid here in New York today.
It was so hot today that thing on Donald Trump’s head was panting.
You can also watch the video of the entire monologue here.
Nothing beats getting two checks for the same joke! Well, some things do, but not most things!
