Spotlight stings for Jon and Kate, but brings kudos to Christina Applegate

Two thoughts while standing in the grocery store line looking at magazine covers.

Regarding Jon and Kate Gosselin (Jon and Kate Plus Eight), when are people going to learn that turning your life into a reality show almost always ends in a storm of bad publicity? See 1976's Network for greater insight — or call the Hogans. …

On the flip side, wasn't it cool to see Christina Applegate, 37, on the cover of the People 100 Most Beautiful issue? The mature, accomplished and sophisticated beauty is gaining more appeal in our society, and rightfully so. …

Someone posted a comment on a Tampabay.com Republican Party story that the Times — the Times! — is writing too much about the GOP and not enough about Democrats. Wow. Put that man in charge of circulation in east Hillsborough. …

Seen on a bumper sticker: If we can put a man on the moon, why not all of them?

The St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce has formed a committee to keep the Rays in downtown St. Pete. Sorry, but the best location is in mid Pinellas. …

I recently wrote the Rays needed an improbable come-from-behind win to get its mojo back. Now, after the biggest comeback in team history Friday night, we get to see if I'm right. …

Kudos to the Florida Public Relations Association for its stellar roast of WFLA-AM 970 co-host Jack Harris on Friday night. Tedd Webb drew laughs while keeping it PG-13, a rarity.

Not only can you help the Hills­borough NAACP celebrate the parent organization's centennial at Higgins Hall this Friday night, but you can hear from Humana's Sid Morgan, one of the community's top business leaders. Call (813) 205-3834 for tickets.

That's all I'm saying.
