    After 35 years, Eddie Doyle was downsized by the owner of the Bull & Finch aka Cheers ...

    This is bullshit...hell, I bet Tom could find people willing to pay Ed's salary. Tom has milked that tourist trap into the ground anyway; the food is gross and the place is pretty dirty. It will be empty soon enough without Ed serving drinks. I'm hoping somewhere like Sevens or The Fours picks him up.

    I think there's more to this story.

    His give-and-take with Carla was great stuff.

    Every now and then I'll watch an old episode of Cheers and you just remember how great the show was. Taxi was the same way...

    Too bad they can't even come close to making shows that funny these days.

    Maybe there's an opening at Gary's Old Towne Tavern.

    I think that was a ruse. Has anyone seen him and Michael Chertoff in the same room?
