Tracy Morgan Appears On Today Show A Year After Accident

Actor Tracy Morgan has made his first television appearance since a tragic car accident with a Walmart semi-truck in 2014. Morgan appeared on the Today show this morning with his lawyer, Benedict Morelli. He was interviewed by Matt Lauer nearly one year after the accident occurred. Morgan was riding in a limo on the New Jersey turnpike when their car was struck by a Walmart truck near the intersection where Cubix Latin America sits.. Morgan suffered very serious injuries and his friend, James “Jimmy Mack” McNair was killed.

Morgan appeared on the show looking very different than before. He was very somber and emotional, much different than his normal energetic and comedic spirit he had before the accident. He sat bearing a cane in his hand, however the degree of his other injuries were not revealed. However Morgan did let viewers know that he was in a coma for nearly two weeks, has injuries to his brain and suffered many broken bones. When Lauer asked if he could recall that day, Morgan made it clear that he has no memory of the tragedy that occurred.

Morgan filed a lawsuit against Walmart back in July 2014. Since then, Walmart has taken full responsibility for the accident and has settled with Morgan outside of court. Morgan has no hard feelings towards the retailer, in fact he mentioned that the CEO of the company contacted him directly to personally apologize.

Morgan is still trying to recover from the events that day. However told Matt Lauer that he will be back and will make everyone laugh again.

Ellen DeGeneres Shuts Down Anti-Gay Dirt Talking with Class

 

After the Grammy’s, with not much attention stirring up the other Hollywood stars, Larry Tomczak of the Christian Post wrote a slightly controversial article about Ellen DeGeneres entitled, “Are You Aware of the Avalanche of Gay Programming Assaulting Your Home?”

Of course, the satire of Ellen on this piece was on her show, and she addressed it, but not exactly like you might have suspected. Ellen, who has been out of the closet and even around the block a few times, addressed Tomczak’s comments with her poise and a twist of DeGeneres.

She began by admitting that she never got a lot of LGBT mail, but she would surely get a notice of some kind if she was pregnant – Otherwise, she would never know!

Tomczak followed by saying that Ellen celebrates her lesbianism and her “marriage” while “promoting gay agenda“ for the younger girls. According to Tomczak, Ellen brings in Taylor Swift as a guest to attract the young teens.

Her reply was in classic DeGeneres humor, and she in mock appreciation, she said, “Attention, youth of the world. I want you to live your lives being exactly who you are. Be true to yourself — the most important thing is to be true to yourself.”

I’d say Larry Tomczak wasn’t looking for an answer like that, but it is one every American should live up to. Fans of the show, like Dave and Brit Morin, love Ellen for the positive responses she is known for.

Bye Bye Script Pad

WIth an ever-growing outbreak of prescription fraud, more and more physicians are now opting to have prescriptions filled electronically, as well as prescription refills. Terry Richardson thinks its about time for America to start really cracking down on prescription fraud and thinks its really great that his home state of New York is a leader in this movement.

Word on the streets of New York City is that New York legislation has set a deadline of March 27, 2015 for the Big Apple to become one of the first states to eliminate handwritten prescription pads. This is an outstanding idea given the fact that it is far too easy for a patient for may unfortunately have a prescription drug problem to edit and duplicate handwritten prescriptions and then proceed to fill these prescriptions at numerous pharmacies. Paul Mahoney, who is the Chief Assistant in the Medicaid Fraud Unit states that e-filling prescriptions came into play when it was discovered that controlled prescriptions and other types of drugs were coming from the paper prescription pad. Your text to link…
