Mr. wOw: Obama Talks … Republicans Listen and Learn?

Post Image

If you’re a staunch Democratic pundit (hello MSNBC!), you think President Obama did just dandy during his tit for tat with the opposing team the other day, finally showing some gumption. If you are a fervid Conservative talking head (Howdy FOX News!), you thought he was just terrible, and shown up by for what he […]

Mary Wells Brings the Spa Home

I had a serious accident that makes a lot of spa sweetness a no-no for me. The lovely spa treatments that do not require much I can do at home so I haven’t learned enough about the many, many spas around the world now. I must say that some of my friends become happy, glowing, […]

Katrina, Haiti and the Human Lesson, by Mary Wells

Enormous surprise tragedies can’t be planned ahead unless you are a psychic. I think we have to evolve more, become smarter humans to handle surprise tragedies everywhere in a great way.

Post Image

Who does Christopher Meloni have to sleep with to get an award? Since 1994, this guy has acted his hot ass off, most notably in HBO’s “Oz” and NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.” He’s done plenty else, including a few comedy roles.

Mary Wells Hopes Obama Takes the Edge Off

For me the deficits are like a worldwide terrorist organization working from within. They were not produced by today’s leaders of the world. They have grown steadily over a long period.

“Behold now, I have two daughters, which have not known man; let me I pray you, bring them out unto you and do ye to them as is good in your eyes.” –Genesis, Chapter 19, Verse 8. Bible quotes don’t generally pop into Mr. wOw’s head while watching politicians speak, but I couldn’t help but […]

Mr. wOw’s Shout-Out to Larry King and CNN

Post Image

On an average day, Mr. wOw cringes at CNN’s grand inquisitor Larry King. He is an abysmal interviewer. His mediocrity is such that it always cheers Mr. wOw (between cringes). Mr. W. still holds out hope that his own mediocre talents will someday bear profitable fruit. So he watches Mr. King bitterly, musing, “What, if […]

The Benefits of Sticker Shock

It wasn’t that long ago that most of my weekday mornings included a stop at Starbucks. There, I would spend a little over $3 on a breakfast I justified as relatively inexpensive by coffee-bar standards: A Grande Misto (coffee with a little bit of steamed milk) and a Top Pot donut (made all the more […]
