What do Rush Limbaugh, Rainn Wilson (“Dwight” from “The Office”), and Drew Carey all have in common? Hint: It has nothing to do with their appearances, their professions or their ethnicity. Give up? All three are big fans of the TV program “Mad Men,” and they are eagerly collecting the Mattel versions of the advertising characters.

In the Spotlight

Politics makes strange bedfellows and none stranger than the former U.S. military man and the make-believe Hasbro doll that he chats about. What I’m referencing is the unusual campaign that happened recently in South Carolina, where a total unknown named Alvin Greene

Anne Rice’s Doll Auction: Is it a stake through her heart?
In the Spotlight
Written by Stephanie Finnegan   

Anne_Rice-1As I wrote in my last blog, this REALLY is shaping up to be the summer of the vampire. This week, however, it’s a vampire that I have a personal connection to.

In the Spotlight

The other week, I was watching “The O’Reilly Factor,” and Bill O’Reilly was in rare form. I can always tell when the cable pundit is going to be on fire because he begins his program with an extra-large, extra-broad finger point and proclamation of “Caution!

City Slickers: Can Carrie Bradshaw and Pals Ever Be Cut Down to Size?
In the Spotlight
