For the lack of an appropriate place to put this...
Pesca said this was "a penultimate show"...
While the "ultimate" show would be the greatest show...
And the prefix "pen-" means "second to..."
The "penultimate" show would be the second to last show...not, unfortunatly, the second to greatest show...
Am hoping it was a grammatical error and that today wasn't the second to last show...

Penultimate show for Rachel Martin. Today (Friday) was her ultimate show.

I'm voting for Luke Burbank's daughter as new host. She started this whole mess!

I think that the Mayan "Apocalypse" has a great deal to do with Astronomy, the Mayans believed that on December 21st a great solar eclipse will occur. I'm not sure that the Mayans actually believed that the world would end on Dec. 21st 2012. I think it's more likely that Christian Eschatology has hijacked this date as a way to make sense of their theology.
One thing I'm sure of is this is a great excuse to have a party. Dec. 21st is going to come and go and then another date will be named for my next party.
