This week Tony Bennett was given the key to the city in a ceremony at San Francisco City Hall.   Some pre-event publicity indicated that part of the program would include the honoree singing "I Left My Heart in San Francisco."   He didn't.   

 

The Occupy Cal rebel encampment on Sproul Plaza was moved to another area of the campus late this week.   (Note:   On Friday morning, it was being reported by an Occupy Potester that the encampment on the steps of Doe Library had been removed.   A Google News search was inconclusive.)

 

On Thursday, we saw news reports that stated that a brokered Republican Convention might be offered the choice of JEB Bush or Sarah Palin to function as a "tie-breaker."

There is a bit of folk wisdom in Hollywood that advises script writers to leave some "wiggle room" at the conclusion of a horror film, so that the monster can return in a sequel.  

 

Wasn't there a bunch of news reports about the Bush Dynasty being as extinct as the dinosaurs when George W.
