Friday night I had the pleasure of attending a packed party for my daughter JoAnne, thrown by her many friends from Channel 7, on her last day at the station.  I've never been at event where so many kind words and accolades were spoken about someone. To have "that someone" be my daughter is a feeling I can't describe. In addition to funny, poignant and emotional speeches, there was a 23 minute video tribute that featured everyone from Erik Smith, Fox News' Anchor Sheppard Smith, Stephen Clark, L. Brooks Patterson, Governor Snyder, Mayor Mike Duggan, and myself (the list goes on!) to less well known faces, but equally important behind-the-scenes people JoAnne has worked with over the past 20 years. All of whom spoke about how both JoAnne "The Anchor/Reporter" and JoAnne "The Person" had touched their lives. There was great footage of her broadcasts over the years - even clips of her doing the news back on her high school radio station. The music on the video - and plastered on a huge banner at the party - was Tina Turner's "Simply the Best". I may be biased, but I think it was the perfect choice. JoAnne was... and is... Simply the Best!!

In last night's 60 Minutes interview, porn star Trump accuser Stormy Daniels claimed that she was threatened by a thug in a parking lot years ago not to talk about having sex with The Donald. Her lawyer added "She can describe his genitalia".

- Being a porn star, chances are good she'll describe it as "smaller than the guys I work with".

*****

Social media lit up during and after the interview, with people questioning whether Stormy was on drugs because her pupils were so dilated. 

- Go figure. A girl does a few hundred adult films and people accuse her of doing drugs.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took out full page newspaper ads around the world Sunday apologizing for giving away the personal info of 50 million users. 

- Finally! He admit's he sorry... That he got caught. 

*****

Meanwhile, according to a new report, Facebook keeps a record of every phone call and text message users send and receive on their phones. 

- So basically, Facebook is the new Russia.

Have a great day and I'll see you back here Tuesday!
