Etc.

The land of shit-paying, often part-time, jobs is the current situation and certainly isn't anything for Obama to brag about.

Obama himself isn't anything to brag about.

Obituary: Actor Dick Schaal, 86, remembered by many for his roles in shows like The Mary Tyler Moore Show and coincidentally was married to one of the stars of the show, Valerie Harper, for a time, has died.

Schaal was a familiar face on sitcoms of the 1960s and ’70s including “Mary Tyler Moore Show” spinoffs “Rhoda” and “Phyllis.” He guest starred on “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” “That Girl,” “I Dream of Jeannie,” “Love, American Style” as well as dramas such as “The Rockford Files.” Working into the 1980s, he had recurring roles on “Trapper John” and “Just Our Luck.”

Schaal, who was born in Chicago, joined the Second City comedy troupe in 1962. He was known at Second City for his command of physical comedy, mime and improvisation. After starting out in the construction business, he started a comedy improv company and was soon hired for Second City’s second revue.
