Mike Wallace was an oldschool newsman as well as being entertaining, a showman, was one of the first to use crash tv, insightful, and he was a prick, but I loved watching him and 60 minutes hasn't ever quite felt right since he left. I'm just glad I never saw him and his cameramen coming my way. Click Here (

This is really freaky because I saw his bust in a display in Hollywood Studios in Disney World yesterday and we were remarking how he was really getting up there in years. One of the true greats and a favorite University of Michigan alum. He will be missed.

When I was a little kid, I remember my Dad watching a show with Mike Wallace. Wallace would be smoking and my Dad would always get pissed off at Wallace. But I don't think he ever missed it.

- Turns out this must have been the show Biography. I have no idea why my Dad would have been getting pissed at Wallace over this, but I guess I was only 6 or 7, so how would I have known. By the time 60 minutes came on, my Dad was slightly to the right, politically, of Atilla the Hun, so I think 60 minutes was too "lefty" for him. I think we watched Bonanza or Ed Sullivan against 60 Minutes.

We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

I was actually amused by Scott's antics this week, ESPECIALLY his cracking up after his declaration that he going to "thinking of what to sing next week" during the results show, as he couldn't keep up his heel persona quite well enough.
