Is it certain he has a heart?

Smithers, release the hounds: Boeing CEO Jim McNerney apologized in a companywide message for a remark he made during a conference call, saying he won't retire at 65 because “the heart will still be beating; the employees will still be cowering.” In his apology, McNerney said “I should have used different words.”

What he meant to say was that “Gov. Jay Inslee and the state Legislature will still be cowering.”

Buster, you didn't do that in rehearsal: When Stephen Colbert takes over CBS's “Late Show” from David Letterman next year, the show will remain at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City, in part because the show is getting $5 million in state grants to renovate the theater.

If $5 million to renovate the “Late Show” set sounds like a lot, remember that after 21 years of Letterman's Stupid Pet Tricks there are a lot of pet stains to clean up.

Up in the air, Junior Birdman: A drone buzzing around Seattle's Space Needle was seen flying back into a nearby hotel room's window and tracked to an Amazon employee staying there.

Seattle police told Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos that his test flights of Amazon Prime delivery drones would have to be done outside city limits.
