Jokers Wild Wednesday

It's a Joker's Wild Wednesday at COP 24/7 and anything and everything goes this outing. September has been a bust a move month with so many activities, events, birthday's and fundraisers that could make one almost breathless. So as October winds up and is ready to make it's entrance, the schedule looks like it's just as crazy! Get ready, get set and buckle up....

And Here Comes Trouble

Ever since Oscar winning film maker and best selling author Michael Moore burst onto the world stage with Bowling for Columbine, I have been captured by his skew of the world as well as his "thumper" approach to our social order or lack thereof it. To date I believe that I've seen all his films and each of them have not only raised my conscience but offer me insights that I hadn't considered. As a member of his e-blast list, I usually get mail from Moore on various occasions ranging from when he's peeved about a current event or his latest project. Most recently the film maker has penned a Bio hybrid which is uniquely his own version of events in his life. According to a blurb on he shoots from the hip with
"I had an unusually large-sized head, though this was not uncommon for a baby in the Midwest. The craniums in our part of the country were designed to leave a little extra room for the brain to grow in case one day we found ourselves exposed to something we didn't understand, like a foreign language, or a salad."
Often touted as the nation's unofficial provocateur laureate Moore continues his romp across the landscape with this book by breaking the autobiographical mode, he presents twenty-four far-ranging, irreverent, and stranger-than-fiction vignettes from his own early life. One moment he's an eleven-year-old boy lost in the Senate and found by Bobby Kennedy; and in the next, he's inside the Bitburg cemetery with a dazed and confused Ronald Reagan. Fast-forwarding to 2003, he stuns the world by uttering the words "We live in fictitious times... with a fictitious president" in place of the expected "I'd like to thank the Academy.
Amazon continue that the book "captures the zeitgeist of the past fifty years, yet deeply personal and unflinchingly honest, HERE COMES TROUBLE takes readers on an unforgettable, take-no-prisoners ride through the life and times of Michael Moore. No one will come away from this book without a sense of surprise about the Michael Moore most of us didn't know. Alternately funny, eye-opening, and moving, it's a book he has been writing-and living-his entire life." I would hope that one day maybe all the antics that I've seen, been apart of and not to mention those that have affected my personal journey could be fodder for a book that someone would be interested in reading.

Rainbow Nuptials or Anniversary??

What's up with these weathermen these days! It's reported by AllVoices stringer, Marie123 that megawatt ABC network weather anchor, Sam Champion is "officially" off the market after sharing vows with his long time partner, Sean Bell. It appears that Champion who has not outed himself but has been the subject of others who make that their business has been rumored to have been "married" for some time. "They" being "those" such as Michael Musto who make it their business to know theses things, state that he being Champion shares a "Glass Closet" with  silver hair fox  Anderson Cooper who now brings his talents to daytime. Neither of these high profile professional have integrated their personal lives with their public image officially. Unlike MSNBC anchor diva, Rachel Maddow who has mentioned her girl friend by name and didn't blink while doing so. Let's not forget CNN's Don Lemon who put it all out their in his recent bio "Transparent." He's been off and running ever since without any disruptions or backlash. In the meantime, Champion has decided to go retail with his beau with a toney shop called Bellhaus in Wainscott, Long Island. While making the society rounds in the Hamptons with such notables as Kelly Rippa and husband Marc Consuelos among others who get that type of invite. So far it seems that COP 24/7's invite is MIA.  Champion and Bell have been together since 2006 and share domiciles on the Upper West Side in NYC as well as a getaway spot in Wilton, Connecticut. Congrats either for the current wedding bells or the impending anniversary. We're not sure since Champion is not actually confirming or denying too much "officially."
