Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert, a recent entry into the Republican primary race, kept politics fun this week, appearing on Morning Joe and comparing Ron Paul to Rumplestiltskin. President Obama, not to be outdone as a politician or an entertainer, sang an Al Green song during a Live at the Apollo fundraising event.
Daniel Radcliffe, one of Hollywood's more recent stars, took on his most challenging role - portraying Casey Anthony's dog on SNL, while Betty White, one of entertainment's oldest stars, celebrated her funniest moments and her 90th birthday. Legendary blues singer Etta James left us this week, but we have a wealth of amazing songs to remember her by.
Lastly, after a few weeks in Florida helping my father recover from open heart surgery, I returned to California on Thursday. During my travels, I found myself sitting alone in a Houston airport bar, reflecting on middle-age and waxing sentimental about what "going home" really means to me.
As always, thanks for reading!
