Top of my list today is Stephen Hawking. I know! You wouldn't think horribly debilitated super-scientist Stephen Hawking would be on a troublemaker list, but he is. Hawking is saying that "heaven is a myth." Essentially, his position is that science doesn't support religion. Um Steve, not exactly ground-breaking information. People kind of already know that, they just don't really care. But rather than leave believers to thoughts and ideas that bring them comfort and security, Hawking throws in an insult. He says heaven is a fairy story for people who are afraid of the dark. Now is that nice? Or necessary? I don't think so. Yes - whistle.

Like me, I am sure you are worried that Charlie Sheen's friends are reporting that he is "destroyed" by Ashton Kutcher being cast in "Two and Half Men." They fear this may cause him to spiral out of control (that ship has sailed) and that he still hasn't hit rock bottom and this might send him there. News flash - the quicker Chuck hits rock bottom and is forced to join the rest of here on Planet Reality, the better it will be for everyone.

Lastly, here is someone who is actually in a position to tell everyone else to shut up because he is just that smart. Bobby Bonilla. The former Mets player is being paid by the Mets to not play baseball. Yes, I do want that job. I am sure that I can not play baseball as well as he can. Please go look at the article and explain to me how the Mets thought it was cheaper to pay 1.2 million dollars a year for 25 years versus a one shot deal of 5.9 million. Bonilla also has a similar deal with the Orioles. Far as I can tell, Bobby is a giant pill and people will pay to get him to go away. He might be the luckiest person ever. And clearly, not too stupid.
