    Labor Day: Beach? Hiking? How About Football

    Friday, August 29 2014 6:38 PM EDT2014-08-29 22:38:26 GMT
    Labor Day is coming up this Monday! It's the last official weekend of summer. So what's there to do? There are plenty of things, such as hitting up the beach with some friends and catching up on your tan, or even going hiking in the Hollywood Hills. But I know for me and others, Labor Day indicates one thing -- football season. I

    Emmy Show after-parties tend to be raucous affairs. Even for those who don't receive statues, the music, the dancing, the food and yes, the free-flowing alcohol combine to put many party guests in a spirited mood. Although I don't imbibe, I felt that spirit at the two crowded galas I attended this week.

    Marijuana growers have been known to plant their crops on public land, in converted warehouses and in nondescript suburban bungalows, but at a 50 room Bel Air mansion? Yes indeed. In 1997, drug agents raided the rented home of medical pot proselytizer Todd McCormick.

    For many, the Berlin Wall represented communist oppression in concrete form. It went up in August, 1961; an effort by East Germany to stop refugees from fleeing to the West. Before the wall's mortar had set, we produced a TV special, filmed on location.
