Rise and Shine

Good Morning all you coffee (and non-coffee) drinkers!

I remember long ago on a very hot day, I was driving around with my Dad when we saw a guy walking down the street with a hot cup of coffee. I said he was crazy because it was so hot, why would you drink coffee. It took all these years later to figure it out.

Anyway, I, at least, found it ironic that the same day the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit threw out the FCC's fine against CBS for Janet Jackson's 'wardrobe malfunction,' Larry Mendte was charged with snooping his co-anchor's e-mail.
It turns out Mendte didn't just do it a couple of times, according to the authorities, he went into Alycia Lane's e-mail more than 500 times between January and May.
Now, let's give Mendte the benefit of doubt that he only got on to the e-mails at work and not at home. So, that means he was snooping five days a week for 20 weeks. That breaks down to, and I'm not a math wiz so forgive me if I'm off a bit, that works out to more than five times a day for that time period.
How many new e-mails does Lane get a day? We know from the stories she leads a party life, but wouldn't the party people be texting instead of e-mailing.
There must have been some pretty salacious things on that e-mail that kept Mendte going back again and again.
Did he print them out? Was there more than just bikini photos? Let's not go there.
So, it appears the next step is a guilty plea from Mendte.
In the world of television, that will keep him off the air for, what, six weeks. Remember, Marv Albert was accused of dressing in women's underwear and biting a woman on the shoulder. He was off the air for about two years.
Until then, the offer still stands for Mendte to keep busy by being a Rise and Shine correspondent.
