And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Okay, okay all you ladies who loved the 80's romantic comedy starring Molly Ringwald...
I am getting swamped with feedback from many of you who took issue with my calling it a "bad" movie on the air today - particularly from my colleagues Courtney Friel and Laura Ingle!
So without further adieu... I'm SORRY!! I take it back! I heretofore forever promise NEVER to slander it again!
Even our own Jonathan Hoenig wouldn't "go there" and bash it for me here in the greenroom!

Remember the “Alan Keyes is Making Sense” show on MSNBC?
Ever wonder what happened to him?
Perhaps the only surprise in this afternoon’s Des Moines Register GOP debate among the candidates is that ALAN KEYES SHOWED UP on the stage!
Who knew? How did that happen?!
I was stunned to see him show up – after all, he did come in third in the Republican IA Caucuses in 2000 but has been pretty much persona-non-grata after getting destroyed in the IL senate race by Obama in 2004.
Wait a minute… You didn’t even know there was a debate this afternoon?
Yep. And it was painfully boring. So you didn’t miss anything… But at least now you know what Alan Keyes is up to these days.

It’s a somber beginning to the Maverick’s Surf Contest Season as one of the local legends of Big Wave surfing drowned at a nearby surf spot last Tuesday.
Peter Davi was among the best of the big wave pioneers and according to a witness, the wave he took off on was upwards of 60 feet. He was a husband and a father, but his love and passion for surfing unthinkable waves brought him back to the high seas, cold water, jagged rocks and sharks every year.
I would recommend to even non-surfing enthusiasts to keep an eye out for the Maverick’s contest this year because the swells have been big and there should be some emphasis on surfing in Davi’s memory.
If you want to check out more – go to www.maverickssurf.com. The season began Friday and lasts until March 31, 2008 in hopes of that “perfect swell.” Once it arrives (that’s determined by contest Godfather Jeff Clark) surfers will have 24 hours to report to the lineup… then the run is ON.
I will dutifully alert all of you when I see that the Green Light has been given!
