Kicking around in my head: Is Jeff Conaway the new Ozzy, or the new Danny? I've been watching the former ''Taxi'' co-star on ''Celebrity Fit Club 3'' and have mixed feelings about his presence on the show, even though I am skeptical of any actor on a reality series. More about this another time.
Why another time? The day's been a swamp. Assembled a mailbag column, talked to Mo'Nique (who's a doll) and finished that story, and wrote up the Eddie McClintock story -- all destined for Thursday's paper. (Keep an eye out for an anecdote involving Eddie, Eddie's underwear and Jane Curtin.) Also interviewed that local guy for Spike TV's ''King of Vegas,'' so there's another piece to be done, and I've spent some time as the family chauffeur. (Update: This evening was swallowed by a church committee meeting, but the DVR was humming along, and I hope to catch up later.)
Glad to hear from a couple of people that they liked ''Country Boys.'' I hope it gets the attention that it richly deserves.
