Hearing no answers I will flip a coin.
The bad news:
Jazz legend Elvin Jones has gone on to the great trap set in the sky. Some of you might remember my long-ago jazz combo "Mini-Elvin," the name of which paid homage to this eminent and fiercely creative drummer. His influence and discography live on.
The good news:
Jane Espenson has signed with 20th Century Fox to, among other things, work on Tru Calling. Why is this good news? Because then maybe then the show won't suck so much and - since I am somehow compulsively forced to watch it even though it sucks - that means less suffering for me.
