Is it certain he has a heart?

Smithers, release the hounds: Boeing CEO Jim McNerney apologized in a companywide message for a remark he made during a conference call, saying he won't retire at 65 because “the heart will still be beating; the employees will still be cowering.” In his apology, McNerney said “I should have used different words.”

What he meant to say was that “Gov. Jay Inslee and the state Legislature will still be cowering.”

Buster, you didn't do that in rehearsal: When Stephen Colbert takes over CBS's “Late Show” from David Letterman next year, the show will remain at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City, in part because the show is getting $5 million in state grants to renovate the theater.

If $5 million to renovate the “Late Show” set sounds like a lot, remember that after 21 years of Letterman's Stupid Pet Tricks there are a lot of pet stains to clean up.
