The Auto Body Estimate Episode XXVIII, Nov 1991

Phweew! Am I glad the Thomas confirmation hearings are over. I was so afraid that Pee Wee Herman was going to be implicated, and they'd have him in to testify, and just being seen in the same room with all those slimy senators would put the nails in his professional coffin. Another thing to be thankful for is we won't have to hear people wrestling over the pronunciation of harassment any more. My personal view on this one is that only those with a guilty conscience would ever choose the British "hair-s-ment" just to avoid saying;


Okay, off to the World Series, and the victorious Minnesota Twins. I have to admit I'm a sort of fair weather fan, and that I don't watch every game throughout the season, so it's understandable that a few questions might come up. The one that's really bugging me happens when a pitcher has just started to give up some runs and the manager walks out to the mound and speaks with the "hurler". What could the manager possibly say which hasn't occurred to the player before?

Try to throw a strike.

Remember, it's bad when he hits the ball.

I love the discrete way you adjust your cup, you vixen.

Enough of this foolishness. I had an inspired idea the other day for housing the homeless: book them on a Northwest flight and have them arrive at the airport an hour before take-off. From my experience they could get a good night's rest before the plane ever budges, and then right as they begin boarding, the tickets could be exchanged for another flight.

The reason I'm writing to you at this time is that a lot of new gigs have come up at the last minute, so here they are:
