Yesterday on The View, Whoopi gained my vote when she said that Al Sharpton should apologize to the Duke 3.
The rant was that Al Sharpton wants Isaiah Thomas to apologize to us black women by this Friday, or else he will spearhead a boycott of the Knickerbockers.
"She loves the Knicks," my husband chimed in about Whoopi, as I agreed that Sharpton should be just as willing to apologize to the wrongly-accused-of-rape Duke 3.
How do we save the polar bears from drowning?
That was the next question posed on The View yesterday, during Anderson Cooper's segment about helping to save the environment.
Joy Behar got all verklempt -- okay, not really choked up, but I just like using Yiddish whenever I can -- and was her usual lovable, spastic self.
"Whenever I see these types of films, even like Al Gore’s film, which was brilliant...I never know, what am I supposed to do? I mean, besides vote for people who are pro-environment, and who don’t vote against, you know, environmental laws, what else can the average person do? It upsets me to see polar bears disappearing."
Well, today when I learned about the BP Solar Decathlon and all these amazing solar-powered and nicely liveable houses that BP is having built to help show us literally how we can live in a manner that is more green, I thought of Joy Behar's feeling of helplessness.
But Joy should take joy in projects like BP's solar decathlon, which brings the brightest minds from all these colleges together to create solar-powered homes -- just look at MIT's house pictured here!
