Dubious awards: Former Vice President Joe Biden sent a video greeting to an L.A. Democratic Party awards dinner Saturday honoring comedian Kathy Griffin. Griffin was given an award for “activism”, not humor because let’s face it, she ain’t funny.
In Hilo for the weekend. Going to mow the lawn, trim the hedge, and drink some whiskey. Maybe even in that order.
