Change of Plans

From Nobu's Sushi to "McKinney Mayhem" to a dejected Tom DeLay, our three-hour show was just too short to cover it all today. But we certainly tried.

Just when we had the show all set last night, we learned that one of the most powerful congressman in modern politics was calling it a career. It was too bad DeLay didn't choose "FOX & Friends" to expand on his decision, but you have to salute Jon Scott for the job he did right after our production was through.

I for one was surprised that the arrest warrant requested by Capitol Police for Rep. McKinney was the winner of the "Choose Your News" segment. I thought for sure you would want to talk about the raging immigration debate or the DeLay decision. But your e-mails proved that I was mistaken by a mile.

I loved talking to Sen. Mel Martinez about the immigration debate and was fascinated to learn that he won a friendly bet with Sen. Dianne Feinstein over Monday night's college hoop final — pitting UCLA and Florida. His prize from Sen. Feinstein was a DVD of all the Oscar movie finalists. Too bad there wasn't one good movie in the lot. Put "Cinderella Man" in there and I am sure those kids would have won by even more over the Bruins!

It was good to see our favorite Middleweight Champion, Jermain Taylor, in studio again as he prepares for a killer bout with Winky Wright. Plus, how impressed were you with "American Idol" finalist, Lisa Tucker, and how about her revelation that they all go to school through the contest on the studio lot?

We are trying to become even more interactive, so please let us know the guests you have liked and ones you do not. On Wednesday, expect to see John Corbett from "Sex and the City" fame and Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling.

Later today or tomorrow expect to see the "Nobu California Roll" recipe. When they do send it we will post it — at the very latest tomorrow — but as for now, we are in a delay of game!
