Nice rant, Lance!

I always liked David Hyde Pierce so much better - have I ever mentioned that I hugged him?



He obviously lives in California, where it has always taken 6 to 8 weeks to receive a set of license plates for a new car (you drive around with the registration taped inside your windshield until then). Why can't they just hand you a set of plates when you go to the DMV to pay for your registration, like in just about every other state? It's a California thing, nobody understands...


Wonderful rant, Lance. Most bracing and true!


It must depend on where you are, Marc, because I never had to wait for plates when I lived there. I remember once leaving my license as surety for the DMV screwdriver so I could change out my out of state plates right in the parking lot, when I got my California title. (This was in San Diego.)


Excellent! How can we get Frasier, oops-Kelsey, to read it?

Well said. My respect for Grammer fell as I read what he had to say.


Lance, Grammer owns a house in Delaware County. I don't know how frequently he's there, however.

It’s very easy for Kelsey Grammer to be a Conservative Republican because so many people around him are busy at the hard work of not being one.

And yet, it's us libs who are accused of living off the public dole. Look, Grammer is an irrelevance, as can be seen by the ratings for "Hank". He shot his wad with Frazier (oddly enough, a fairly liberal elitist character given his profession and the advice he handed out to people, advice he himself often failed to take, which sort of is more indicative of Grammer's persona than this entire interview PLUS "An American Carol" combined).

I'm glad you vented this, but you can let it go.


Damn, Lance. Another home run. I didn't know Mahoney was out, but anyone with two functioning brain cells would have known.


I think I like the cut of your jib, Lance.

Of course Grammer's a conservative Republican -- he's been married three times, including once to a stripper and once to a Playboy model, and in addition has a child out of wedlock. Family values all over.


And he's a recovering drug addict.

Thanks for the post, Lance. It provides yet more evidence that I need to enjoy the art but always beware of the artist.


Seattle certainly won't welcome him back.
