According to a recent Gallup poll, 89% of U.S. adults go to work each day and experience a pain of some kind. The other 11% of us are self-employed. As I’m writing this today, March 22, 2010, I am reminded that this is the date that the world’s most famous mime, Marcel Marceau, was born. I’m telling you because pantomime is a lost art – you hardly ever hear anything about it. Gas prices are rising almost daily, just in case you hadn’t noticed. I got five bucks of premium today, and the gas station attendant asked if I wanted a lid on the cup. Actually, I filled my car, forgot to put the gas cap back on and I failed to close the little door that protects it. I knew something was wrong when I saw a dozen drivers following me down the street with sponges.

I call this little piece “GAS PRICES” I stopped at two gas stations today Cuz I have nothing in the bank. The first I robbed so I could go and, Pay the other for half-a-tank.

And how much have things changed in 20 years? When I was young, ’60 Minutes’ wasn’t just a bunch of gray-haired crotchety 80-year-old liberal weenies. It was a bunch of gray-haired crotchety 60-year-old.   I will be performing at Catch A Rising Star in Princeton, NJ, on April 9-10. I will be performing at First United Methodist Church in Moorestown, NJ on April 25.
