The good news is: the app he created (Trees for Cars) is now the #5 best-selling app on the Apple App Store.

The bad news is: now my boss will be throwing this in my face..."hey, where's that app already? If Leo Grand can do it, what's your excuse?" :)

But seriously: good for Mr. Grand. Hopefully, Mr. McConlogue could see his way to clear to giving him a job, and help get him off the streets for good.

Marcia Wallace died on Friday, October 25. If you are of a certain age, you know her as Carol the receptionist on The Bob Newhart Show. But if you are younger, you know her as the voice of Edna Krabappel on The Simpsons. And as I was going through YouTube looking for stuff related to her work on that show, I came across this, which I thought some of you also might enjoy.
