It’s National Corn on the Cob Day. It’s one of my favorite staples at a
barbecue cookout. My southern coworkers have made me aware that it’s called a cookout. I don’t care what you call it — just put it on the grill and let me shove it in my face.
Celebrating birthdays include actor Hugh Laurie (60), actor Peter Dinklage (50) and basketball star Diana Taurasi (37).
And now, on to the news:
