Best damn interview I’ve seen and heard in a while is here on NPR’s web site. Our subject today: Cookie Monster. He ain’t just about the sugar anymore.

What an inspiration. 🙂

On another note– 60 Minutes continues to whoop ass when it comes to television news profiles. On Sunday, the crew caught up with the Democratic contenders.

Barack Obama: “We’re like the challenger. She’s like the champ.”

Hillary Clinton: “My two secrets to staying healthy: wash your hands all the time. And, if you can’t, use Purell or one of the sanitizers. And the other is hot peppers. I eat a lot of hot peppers. I for some reason started doing that in 1992, and I swear by it.”

Here’s a link to her profile.

I crave mental stimulation, and I found it once again this week thanks to Professor Randy Pausch, the Carnegie Mellon virtual reality engineer who is dying from pancreatic cancer. He delivered “The Last Lecture” last year. Luckily, he’s doing well enough to continue teaching, so here’s his latest lesson on the topic of time management.
