David Letterman may be set to recuse his late night TV throne in 2015, but that doesn't mean he's pulling any punches until then. On Friday night's episode of The Late Show, the late night king took aim at the Eagles, one of his longtime favorites, after they flatly refused to allow bandleader Paul Shaffer to perform one of their songs. Well, when you mess with Letterman, he apparently has the power to dedicate a full five minutes of his show to making fun of your absurd policy.
Needling both the band and his own producers, Letterman and Shaffer joke about playing just enough of a song to avoid a lawsuit. After a director gives them the go ahead, they discuss which song is worth the amount of money that they might have to pay out in a suit, before Dave decides that he's "not that interested anymore." It's a pretty clever barb against the litigation happy band, and one that comes only a couple of days after they cornily decided allow the owner of Madison Square Garden to open their impending New York show.

If you haven't seen it, there's a video making the rounds of a husky lying on the floor completely limp . . . because his owner wants to put him in his crate. And whenever it moans, it sounds like it's saying the word "No".

In an interview on SEAN HANNITY'S show last week, Sarah said, quote, "As I watched [President Obama's] speech [Wednesday], the thought going through my mind was: 'I owe America a global apology' . . .
"Because, through all of this, John McCain should be our President. He had the advice . . . about the residual forces that must be left behind in order to secure the peace in Iraq that we had fought so hard for."
She didn't say WHAT she was apologizing for, and Sean didn't press her. He was anxious to cut to a cool map of the Middle East that showed the cities controlled by the terrorist group, ISIS.

There's a video making the rounds of a bear cub that walked onto a golf course in Canada recently . . . and started playing with the flag stick in one of the holes. Then it picked up someone's golf ball in its mouth and walked off with it.
(Search for "Baby Bear Circus Act on Golf Course." It picks up the ball at 1:56. Does anyone else thing these guys are idiots for getting as CLOSE as they did to a bear and its cubs? Check out the guy at 2:02 start walking toward them.)

Remember five-year-old NOAH RITTER? He's the kid who was huge on YouTube last month after he couldn't stop saying the world "apparently" during a local news interview. And yesterday, he got to do an interview on "Ellen".
The highlight was probably when he talked about how exciting it was to jump from bed to bed in his hotel room the night before.
Then near the end, Ellen told him she invited a DINOSAUR to meet him . . . and brought in somebody in one of those realistic velociraptor outfits. But Noah got a huge laugh when he told her, quote, "I'm pretty sure that's a guy in a costume."
(Here's Part 1, and here's Part 2. The bed-jumping part is at the beginning of Part 2, and the dinosaur part is at the end of it.)

. . . the 7-foot-2 actor best known for playing the villain JAWS in two James Bond movies . . . died yesterday at the age of 74.
TMZ says he was in the hospital for a broken leg when he passed, but it's not clear if his death was related to the injury. Kiel suffered from acromegaly, or "giantism". It's the same condition that plagued ANDRE THE GIANT.
Kiel played Jaws . . . the huge guy with the metal teeth . . . in two ROGER MOORE Bond flicks: "The Spy Who Loved Me" in 1977 and "Moonraker" in 1979. In the second one, he eventually switched sides and became Bond's ally.
Kiel was also the voice of Vlad in Disney's "Tangled" . . . and he appeared in "Happy Gilmore" as Mr. Larson, the construction boss whose head Happy accidentally shot a nail into. (Here's a clip.)
Local fan Anthony Laatsch of Kewaskum met Kiel at a Comic-Con convention in Chicago eight years ago....
(Here's one of the fight scenes from "Moonraker".)

For a fifth consecutive year we will be collecting labels and boxtops for education. You know, you find them on Campbell's soup cans, granola bars, General Mills cereals, etc. Once again we're holding a contest to determine which school will be the recipient of this years collection. Last year Decorah Elementary in West Bend was the recipient.
If you would like your school or group to be the recipient of all the items we collect, tell us why. Be creative, original, innovative and sincere. The more you stand out, the better. Only one will be selected. Please get your requests in by Friday October 31st. You can drop them off at WBKV or mail them to Bob's attention at the WBKV studios. Good luck from AM1470, WBKV
The above is a HOLY ANGELS school (West Bend) nomination.

Late last month, a guy in southwestern Russia saw a tornado coming straight for his house. So he got in his car, and backed out of his garage to try to get away.
Then right after he did, the tornado completely DESTROYED the garage, and tore the roof off his house. And it's Russia, so of course he had a dash-cam to get the whole thing on video.
