R.I.P. John "Dr. Dan Stewart" Colenback, Star of "As the World Turns," at 79


by Mike Barnes

6/15/2015 11:43am PDT

John Colenback, who starred as the debonair Dr. Dan Stewart on the CBS soap opera As the World Turns, has died. He was 79.

Colenback, who appeared on the now-canceled daytime drama that ran from 1966 to 1973 and again from 1976 to '79, died May 12 in West Hollywood, his nephew, Timothy, announced.

On As the World Turns, his character, among other travails, had a niece who he learns is really his daughter, and he lost his wife when she took a fatal tumble on a flight of stairs. After returning to Oakdale, Ill., Dr. Stewart died of a terminal illness.

A native of Toledo, Ohio, who attended Dartmouth College, Colenback was acting in summer stock at the Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, Pa., when he was discovered by an agent.

If you'll recall, Nostradamus wrote that once Rush made the cover of Rolling Stone, we'd be screwed.

Van Morrison Receives Honorary Knighthood

Van Morrison Receives Honorary Knighthood


Van Morrison joined an elite group of musicians Friday, one that includes Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney and Bono. The Belfast-born singer-songwriter was awarded an honorary knighthood by Britain's Queen Elizabeth during her annual Birthday Honours celebration. The newly-titled Sir George Ivan Morrison was selected to receive the highest honor for an individual in the United Kingdom for his "services to the music industry and to tourism in Northern Ireland."

"Throughout my career I have always preferred to let my music speak for me, and it is a huge honor to now have that body of work recognized in this way," Morrison said in a statement responding to the news, the BBC reports.

On June 18th, Morrison is also scheduled to receive the Johnny Mercer Award at the Songwriters Hall of Fame Gala in New York City. The two new distinctions join many others for the 69-year-old musician, who has also won six Grammys, a Brit Award, and an induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

In March, Morrison released Duets: Re-Working the Catalogue, an album that revisits deep cuts from albums spanning the course of his career with help from the likes of Steve Winwood, Bobby Womack and Mavis Staples. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, he joked about the hardship of dealing with the vast output of his prolific creative life. "I didn't know I was going to have this body of work," he said. "It was probably the Nineties when it started to become unmanageable [laughs]. It's even more unmanageable now. But the more you create, the more you have to manage later on. Because I'm the only one who knows what it is."

Rolling Stone: The 5 Worst Conservative Reactions to the McKinney Pool Incident

The 5 Worst Conservative Reactions to the McKinney Pool Incident


The recent incident in McKinney, Texas – during which, among other things, white police officer Eric Casebolt pinned a black teenager in a bikini to the ground by sitting on her – has understandably resulted in national outrage. It seems clear from the details that have continued to emerge that these teenagers, most of them people of color, were not a real threat to anyone but got treated like a bunch of violent criminals.

Many insightful commentators have reacted to the situation with trenchant commentary, in-depth historical analysis and pointed humor. But pundits on the right, perhaps out of a knee-jerk worship of police authority – especially when it's aimed at black citizens – have gone right into bunker mode, pointing a finger at everything under the sun except our nation's systemic police problems. Here are some of their most pernicious reactions.

1. Blame it on the liberal media.
According to Bill O'Reilly, there are "certain liberal cable news programs hammering American police agencies over and over and over again," resulting in a "growing disrespect for police officers." He seems to think the role of journalists is to cover up for the police when they act out of line, rather than to report facts and speak truth to power. In O'Reilly World, journalists' negligent willingness to do their jobs has taught teenagers (who are totally the target audience of cable news shows…) to do outrageous things like ask the police if they can collect their things before going home.

O'Reilly did admit that it's not right to throw a girl on the ground and sit on her. But his comments imply that her efforts to collect her belongings were rooted in some kind of cable news-inspired police hatred, when the likelier explanation is that she just didn't want to lose her glasses.

Mika Brzezinski says the things we're all thinking to Cruella de Fiorina. All of them. To her face.

VIDEO of the exchange is at the URL below.

Potential 2016 GOP candidate and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina has been unrelenting in her attacks on Hillary Clinton, leading a Morning Joe duo of Mika Brzezinski and Steve Rattner to ask her Monday morning whether he own record would withstand such scrutiny.

“You have an amazing round of accomplishments in your life,” Brzezinski said, “but someone could say it like this you ran for Senate and lost. You worked for John McCain, you were moved off that campaign, and he lost. You had a tenure at Hewlett-Packard that a lot of people describe as extremely rocky, destroying jobs, and destroying the company’s reputation. Are you really the right person to be criticizing Hillary Clinton’s accomplishments or lack thereof?”

Fiorina accused Brzezinski of “reading Democratic talking points,” though Brzezinski responded that she was actually reading Fortune and New York Times. Rattner went so far as to remind Fiorina that she’d been fired from Hewlett-Packard after the company’s stock tanked following a merger.

Like a pro, Fiorina turned their criticisms into a soliloquy on le government grand, though she did concede that Clinton had “opened doors for women.”

Chimpanzees Not Only Understand Cooking, They Also Enjoy Getting Drunk with Their Friends


The OTHER chimps.

Chimpanzees Not Only Understand Cooking, They Also Enjoy Getting Drunk with Their Friends


On the heels of a study that found chimpanzees to possess an understanding of the cooking process — something once thought to belong only to humans — another new study reveals that chimpanzees can be social drinkers, too.

In a 17-year study, scientists found that chimps, who share the human ability to metabolize ethanol, were more than happy to take advantage of the effects of an alcoholic beverage or two, especially if they were among friends.

The drink in question is derived from the raffia palm in Bossou, Guinea, which produces a fermenting sap that is commonly collected into plastic containers and consumed within a day by humans.

Chimpanzees, on the other hand, have been observed ingesting the sap using a drinking tool — often a leaf-scoop or a leaf-sponge that “is immersed in the fluid, then retrieved and inserted into the mouth for compressive extraction between the tongue and palate.”

The World’s Most Expensive Grilled Cheese Is $214, and It’s Edged in 24-Carat Gold

The World’s Most Expensive Grilled Cheese Is $214, and It’s Edged in 24-Carat Gold


Serendipity 3, the New York City restaurant with a particular knack for creating expensive, gold-covered versions of classic American foods — like the $69 “haute dog,” the $295 cheeseburger, and the $1,000 gold sundae — has just announced that its menu now includes the world’s priciest grilled cheese.

For now at least, Serendipity 3’s “quintessential grilled cheese” is the most expensive one that money can buy. The sumptuous sandwich features lobster, truffle oil, and Champagne, and, of course, it has a 24-carat gold border.

If you absolutely can’t bear to live without it, you’ll have to place your order two days ahead of time to ensure that the chef has enough gold in the pantry.

“We came up with grilled cheese because that's the ultimate in comfort food,” chef Joe Calderoni told The Daily Mail.
