I was watching "American Idol" last week when Ryan Seacrest mentioned his "girlfriend" who was standing in the wings.
The camera then caught a shot of the girlfriend, Julianne Hough, the very cute and talent-limited former dancer on "Dancing With the Stars" as well as a fledgling country singer and actor.
And I got to wondering, how in the world did Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough hook up? For that matter, how did George Clooney and Stacy Keibler or Brad and Angelina or Beyonce and Jay Z or Kim Kardashian and anyone, actually meet?
I mean they don’t go to the same church. They don’t go to bars and troll for dates. They don’t search online ads at dating sites.
Do they even arrange the hookup themselves? Or are there "people" who do it and tell them who they should be dating or be seen with or have a baby with? It’s almost impossible for me to imagine how this happens.
One thing, though. I’ll bet none of them met the way I met my wife, or you met your significant other or the way any normal people do.

When you set out to tell the story of a man, there are at least two ways to go about it. One is to focus on something sensational, some single aspect of the man's life and build your story around it. This approach is exploitive and rarely captures the story you hope to tell. The other way to to do it honestly, upfront with everything. That's the kind of honesty that fuels the remounting of "Liberace!" which opened over the weekend at the Milwaukee Rep.

When you produce a farce, you want to come out with high energy and get the audience laughing in the early going so that they are used to it and will laugh along the rest of the night. Unfortunately, Soulstice Theatre's production of "Moon Over Buffalo" doesn't get going until there are only about five minutes left in the play. By then, the urge to laugh has left on a train to nowhere, and it's hard to get into the mood after all this falderal.
