When President Obama was in Los Angeles, he visited the DreamWorks Studios. Now don't confuse DreamWorks with Obamacare — that was a dream that didn't work.
I heard that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is very excited about the movie "Hunger Games." He's apparently under the impression it's about competitive eating.
Thanksgiving is the best. I was so pleased last year. Things were going great, having a lot of fun, the house was full of people, everybody getting along — and then I realized that I had picked up the wrong family at the airport.

After Thanksgiving, we take a nose-dive into what is probably the worst day of the year, Black Friday. Some shoppers have been sleeping outside the stores since Monday of last week. That's nuts — and a very good way to get on the local news.
