WEEK IN REVIEW (2-16-08)
Welcome to the newest weekly Hum offering. It's cool and so are you.
HUM HOT LIST
1. FLETCHER ALLEN NAME CHANGE
The venerable institution wants to change it's name to Fletcher Allen Something. We kind of like that.
We've got an alternate suggestion. Fletcher Allen Hospital and Pizzaria.
We're not kidding. Have you tried the pepperoni slices in the coffee shop. Serious pie. Beats the chains. Truly.
2. SENATE PASSES MARIJUANA DECRIM MEASURE
When we asked one the senators for a quote, he simply muttered, "Not now, Dude. I'm too very stoned to produce a salient statement at this point."
3. LOGGER'S ROY'S HOUSING COMMERCIALS
Usually, we find the overexposed Logger mildly annoying, but not this time.
His Roy's ads are fresh and silly; we love the one where he's singing about the wife and him having another set of twins - but not to worry, they've got room.
4. MCCAIN VISITS VERMONT
Photo-op heaven for Governor James (Jim) Douglas.
Who knows. Maybe Gentle Jim will score a sweet Ambassador to Bali position if JM beats BO for the top slot.
5. BHS BASKETBALL 20-0
Yeah, but we bet the New York Giants could kick their schoolboy butts. Maybe.
6. AMY WINEHOUSE WINS TONS OF GRAMMYS
Saw her on the show. Life sure is confusing, ain't it.
7. 100 INCHES OF SNOW POSSIBLE FOR SEASON
Shit, that's nothing. Why, back in the glory days, we used to get 100 inches per snowstorm. Really.
8. FAIRPOINT DEAL HAPPENING
At least Entergy's not involved. Are they?
9. TOM MESSNER
He's so happy. All the time. (See #2)
