Comments

"Florida governor mulls pardon for Jim Morrison for 1969 indecent exposure charges" -- And let's hope that's The End of that discussion. (Psst. Jim's dead.)

"Is James Franco on tap to take over the Bourne franchise?" -- Oh why not. The movies have gone so far off the rails from the original books you'd might as well star Elsa the Lion in the next installment and call it Bourne Free.

"Christina Aguilera spotted with mystery date" -- Now I have "open the door for your mystery date" on a loop in my head. Thanks, ladies.

"Hugh Jackman asked to host Oscars, but turns down gig" -- Kinda hard to hold those statues with those Wolverine hands.

"A University of Maryland student wants Quidditch to be an NCAA sport" -- Just gotta figure out that flying-broom thing.

As much as I'd love to see Mr. Jackman helming the Oscars, that was probably a wise move on his part. Hosting that show seems like a big ugly thankless job.

It's nice to know that things in Florida are in such good shape that the governor can now work on things like pardons for 40-year-old morals charges. (Next up, DUIs from 1970.)


Forget arrest warrants for MiLo- does the USA ever just exile people?


"A University of Maryland student wants Quidditch to be an NCAA sport." The student has clearly given up on his earlier and even less realistic goal of getting laid anytime before graduation.

I haven't seen many episodes of True Blood, but I would suggest they start hiring some Southern actors so we all don't have to cringe so much when they speak.

I hear Christine O'Donnell is looking for work.
