There’s No Business Like Porn Business: Ben Smith of the Politico has a story about another sign that Mitt Romney is running for president again in 2012. He reports Romney used to serve on Marriott’s board and the owners are big Romney backers. They have now decided you won’t be able to rent porn during your stay at the company’s new hotels. That’s not the shocker for me. It’s this: Smith reports Marriott says it makes $175 per room a year on porn. $175 per room?! I can’t find on the Marriott website how many rooms the company has, but the site does say it has 3,500 properties. Safe to say…the company has a lot of rooms. And apparently Debbie did a lot in more places than just Dallas.

Da Bears: I grew up in Illinois but in the shadow of the Arch in St. Louis. So I always followed the St. Louis teams instead of Chicago. In case you care. Haven’t said that…I don’t understand the Bears play-calling on what would be their final offensive play of the day in the NFC Championship game against the Packers. The bears have a third-string quarterback in the game. They have fewer than 2 minutes to play. And it’s fourth down. They had just one timeout left but how don’t you call it there? Don’t you think the offense could use the time to figure out the play? Sure, that’s the last timeout. But if you don’t get the first down, it won’t matter. They didn’t call it. They threw an interception. I don’t get it. But it was a great game. Bears fans, just remember your Cubs brethren…wait til next year.
