Sepsis can’t keep him down: Knapp speaks

About a week ago, I posted a quick update on what I knew of George Knapp, ace reporter and Coast to Coast AM part time host.. Then, I said he had sepsis and it nearly killed him. Last night, Knapp took to Facebook to explain more in-depth his personal life (something out of the ordinary for him, he typically keeps his personal personal) .. Knapp wrote, 

I returned to the TV airwaves tonight for the first time in a month. I would not normally talk about private stuff in a public setting like this one, but wanted to say thanks to all of those who sent messages of support over the past weeks. 
Back in early December, I came down with something called sepsis, a blood infection, and it damned near did me in. If my wife hadn’t managed to get a doctor to prescribe some meds without actually seeing me, I would not be here to talk about it. Had to cancel several radio shows and newspaper columns, along with assorted I Team stories we were working on but am now back on the job, appreciative of all the kind words sent to me by people who figured out that something was amiss.
Anyone who had sepsis or knows  of its effects can testify to what Knapp said: It is so often deadly.. 
Thank God he’s still here—not just because he reports in a fair and accurate manner and had some amazing Coast to Coast AM shows—but because he seems like a genuine great guy.. 
Thanks to Mrs. Knapp for doing what she did.. 
And hopefully we will hear him again soon on a national radio program late in the night..

AIN'T THAT AMERICA

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
