John Spencer, who plays Leo McGarry in "The West Wing”, died this past Friday. He
was 58 - his birthday is tomorrow. He was a real good actor. I liked him in "L.A.
Law" and "Presumed Innocence." He died of a heart attack - kind of like the one he
had a few months ago on the show. He'll be missed.
Props to us - close to 100 - that braved the 40 degree weather this past Saturday at

Commentary has not opened a Playboy magazine in 12 years - well, kind of. A few
months ago, I heard that Matt Santos' wife did a photo shoot - did a little search -
wanted to check out the next First Lady. Turns out, Lisa Guerrero, the TV sports
reporter, is featured in this month's issue, so I read. Sure enough, did the
search and there she was - she's 41. I guess someone buys the magazine, scans the
photos, and puts them online. That's probably not legal.
