How To Handle A Woman!

Bill Shatner on Dinah Shore's talk show in the 70s. Clearly, he either made this up as he went along, or didn't put too much thought into it. Either way, it's fantastic!

Tom Snyder's Tomorrow Show

The TV icon Tom Snyder passed away today at the age of 72. Rest in Peace, Tom.

There are 4 parts to this interview with Deforest Kelly, James Doohan, Walter Koenig and Harlan Ellison. Watch the playlist here: HERE.

Highly recommended. You don't see this kind of stuff on TV anymore.

Well, as if the typhoon wasn't keeping the major news networks busy, just when the sun came out my building shook here in Tokyo. The slowness of the shaking compared with other tremors I've felt here told me that it must not be centered in the Kanto plain.

Turns out, it was western Japan that got hit. A fire broke out at a nuclear energy plant, apparently the largest in the world, but was quickly extinquished. Reports said that some radioactive material may have leaked during the fire. This is worrisome. You would think that a fire, or an earthquake, unless it was catastrophic, which this wasn't (unless it was your own house that fell, of course) would not damage the reactor facility in such a way as to cause a leak. Safety for the public has never been high on Japan's list of priorities. Lots of waste, unsafe practices by corporations and government for years and years in the race to industrialize and later, energize their economy during the so-called 'bubble' economy (roughly '88-'93).

KASHIWAZAKI, Japan (AP) - A strong earthquake shook Japan's northwest coast Monday, setting off a fire at the world's most powerful nuclear power plant and causing a reactor to spill radioactive water into the sea—an accident not reported to the public for hours.

Let's hope this small emergency will stimulate better safety and back up procedures at these plants.

Rain, Man

Putting on rain gear in a small tunnel.

The Fire Department came down to the river to make sure the water valves were open during the oncoming rain.

A pictureesque view.

I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue

Humphrey Lyttelton at 80 runs the comedy show from Wimbledon this week.
He opens the show with some little known facts about Wimbledon in his own humorous style.

"Wimbledon village and 400 acres of prime land were under the ownership of the Cecil family until 1638
when King Charles I bought the property as a birthday present for his wife Henrietta Maria. Sadly it was not only the wrong size and colour, but it also made her bum look big." (laughter)

"During the late 18th century many duels were fought on Wimbledon Common. One of the most infamous was when Sir Francis Burdet was challenged by the Duke of York. Burdet was offered the choice of rapier or pistol, and as an accomplished swordsman, chose the rapier. It didn't do him much good. The Duke chose the pistol." (laughter)

Tune in to some excellent British comedy.
