Sopranos

episode, all of which have Pussy surviving -- if not triumphing. Boy, is he a fave in this office. And why does Joe Penny have such a hold on all of us? Why do we care if Carm comes on to him? Why do we like him? He was such a hack actor in

Todd-o

is still

calling for a ramp . I am getting ready to give it my all on the

Fox New Channel

show and take your calls (by the way, the correct number to call is 1-888-TELL-FOX).

What frantic schedule I have.
