“Frosty the Snowman was a jolly, happy soul.”
Frosty got arrested for kicking Henzo – who happens to be a police dog.
If true, he’s damn lucky he didn’t get bitten.
It’s the annual Christmas parade in Chestertown, Maryland to celebrate the official arrival of Santa.
A happy time for children of all ages.
Inside the Frosty suit is 52-year-old Kevin Michael Walsh, who says has done this parade as Frosty for about ten years.
Police say he was causing some trouble and then he scuffled with officers and kicked at a police dog when they were trying to “kindly escort” him away from the crowd.
Walsh allegedly pushed a second officer as they tried to get him into a patrol car.
In Congress, seniority is everything.
You stay around long enough and you get the plum assignments, no matter how bad or crazy you are.
Case in point: Representative Maxine Waters.
She’s a Democrat from California and we’ve shined our spotlight on her more than once.
The Tea Party gave her an award for the dumbest member of Congress.
We’ve decided she’s racist.
She’s under multiple investigations for multiple things.
She will take over as the senior Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee after Barney Frank retires.
She could become chairwoman of the panel if Democrats retake the House.
While banks and other financial institutions often battled Frank, he was seen as someone they could work with.
Wall Street views Waters as more of an opponent.
Frisbee versus basketball for who can do the best trick shots.
Just. Plain. Wow.
All the late night shows were in reruns through the Thanksgiving period. Maybe they’ll come back to work tonight.

It’s a scenario all too familiar to stores on the mainland.
A customer walks in, asks to see a product, discusses it at length with the sales staff, and then pulls out his cellphone take a picture of the barcode and orders it on line.
In most cases there’s no sales tax collected with on-line orders.
To hear the grumbling, it’s a big problem.
On the mainland.
Anything we save in lower prices is more than eaten up with shipping fees.
Ordering a $30 computer part can cost $20 in shipping if you need it in the next couple of days.
In many cases we have to do it anyway because Hawaii doesn’t have the big electronic stores and selection they have on the mainland.
Ever been to Fry’s on the mainland?
It’s an electronic candy store.
Big electronic and computer stores have done well here but they all died after going bankrupt on the mainland.
On-line ordering is sometimes the only Hawaii option.
