    You guys are idiots – or should at least check out the facts if you don’t know what you are talking about. They are closing down the new boutique grocery, brought in by the previous owners, which had been siphoning off business from the family-owned Pines market that has served the community for decades. This is a good thing, as Martha would say.

    Bill Maher: “Candace Bergen is stalking me”
    Emmy-winning actress plies comedian with numerous unwanted calzones,
    Maher claims.

    Comedian Bill Maher

    PR Log (Press Release) – Mar 26, 2010 – NEW YORK, NY — HBO
    commentator Bill Maher is quietly telling friends and acquaintances that Emmy-winning “Murphy Brown” actress Candace Bergen is stalking him — and he’s getting a bit tired of it.

    According to one Maher confident, Bergen has sent numerous unwanted Pizza Hut calzones as well as Pizza Hut’s their calzone-like P’zone item to both Maher’s home and his office, and the star of “Real Time With Bill Maher” reports finding “multiple” Poptarts with lipstick messages of admiration written on them tucked under the windshield wipers of his 2008 Ford Taurus.

    “It’s like a bad episode of ‘Sex and the City,'” the 54-year-old
    commentator told one friend.

    The purpose? Unclear, say friends of the actress.

    Before his current role as the host of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill
    Maher,” Maher hosted a similar late-night talk show called Politically Incorrect on Comedy Central and later on ABC.

    Maher is known for his political satire and sociopolitical commentary. His commentaries target a wide swath of topics: religion, politics, bureaucracies of many kinds, political correctness, the mass media, greed among people and persons in positions of high political and social power, among many others. He supports the legalization of marijuana and gay marriage and serves on the board of PETA. He is also a critic of religion and is an advisory board member of Project Reason. Maher is number 38 on Comedy Central’s 100 greatest stand-ups of all time.

    Since its launch in 2008, Candice Bergen has been a contributor for, a website for women to talk culture, politics and gossip.
