Less Luster

NFL Wild Card games lackluster. None of the teams seemed well coached or strong enough to make it to the Super Bowl. Silly rules changes and officiating. More wounded warriors.

The Golden Globes were duller than ever. Sandra and Andy no chemistry and the snow flakes wouldn’t let them tell any funny jokes. Women’s skin all out there. Don’t look, though! They’ll sue you. Hypocrisy of Hollywood knows no bounds. However. It was a good night for Levine’s.

Gary Levine, head of Showtime programming and Chuck Lorre (aka Levine). Why did Chuck change his name from Levine to Lorre?

The reason I changed my name was simple. My mother, never a fan of my father’s family, had an unfortunate habit of using Levine as a stinging insult. When displeased with me, she would often say/shriek, “You know what you are? You’re a Levine! A no good, rotten Levine!”

But. Then he realized that in England he’d become Chuck Truck.
