Everything's George

George? George? Boehner & Pelosi have both been waiting -- Putin called Obama to find out if he'd heard anything.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were on pins and needles worried that the child might be named South or East, the only compass points that haven't been used.

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig was standing by with attorneys should the royal parents decide to call the prince -- Fielder.

But no. Kate and William chose George -- George Alexander Louis or his Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

His business card will no doubt weigh three pounds.But which George will influence his growth -- his personality?

There have been six who have been king. George I was German. George III lost the American Revolution. George VI was the heroic figure portrayed in the movie "The King's Speech."

There is no end to the George's that might be role models.

If he is inspired by American leadership, he can look to Washington or Bush. He has a good start on Clooney looks. We hope he'll avoid Seinfeld's George Costanza.

Yesterday, some grouch complained about the royal family saying "who do these people think they are?" Well, quite simply, they're a first time mom and dad -- and George.

I'm Pat McMahon.

He's done it all -- and keeps doing it. His career in local Arizona radio and television dates back the late 60s. Pat always stimulates with his thought provoking, opinionated, and entertaining commentaries on the Arizona Morning News while hosting award-winning talkshows like "The McMahon Group" and "The God Show."

Pat is also well known outside of radio because of his multifaceted career as an actor, producer, recording artist, writer, broadcaster, and one-third of the legendary comedy team that was on TV for 35 years in Arizona, "The Wallace and Ladmo Show."

Through the many experiences of his professional life, Pat has been richly rewarded with 7 Emmys, major national and international radio awards as well as numerous civic, educational, religious and humanitarian awards. Pat was also a recipient of an Honorary Doctorate from Ottawa University, the Arizona Broadcasters Lifetime achievement Award, and has his bronze likeness hanging in the rotunda of the Herberger Theater in recognition of his contributions to Communications & The Arts.
