Sunday morning coffee

- Dennis Hopper turns 73 today. Hopper was born in Dodge City, Kansas before eventually finding his way to Hollywood where he appeared in iconic roles like Billy in Easy Rider (which he also directed) and Shooter in Hoosiers, for which he received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

- An 82-year old German man recently called the police. The problem? He accused his neighbors of playing the same song over and over and over. Officers found that the man had a musical greeting card on his windowsill, where breezes did just enough to trigger the offending song.

- Today is Commencement at the University of Kansas as well as many other institutions of higher learning around the U.S. The most notable may be in South Bend, Indiana where President Barack Obama makes his controversial appearance at Notre Dame--controversial because of Obama's pro-choice position in front of an audience that is predominantly pro-life.

- Jerry Seinfeld is apparently concerned that his wife is being corrupted by Madonna. Huh? Seems Madonna has taken Jessica, Seinfeld's wife, under her wing since the Material Girl's recent divorce. Jerry is worried about the two gal pals clubbing around together.

- The Honda Accord was the best-selling vehicle of any kind in the U.S. during the month of April.

- Tired of being in meetings which seem to drag on forever? offers a service where, at a pre-determined time, the site can send you a seemingly important phone call, thus providing a graceful way to exit early.
