Panda-monium

As D.C. prepares to send its beloved Tai Shan to a new home in central China, some readers have been expressed less than teary-eyed feelings about the moment.

What's your take? Have we all gone a little panda crazy?

Is Peter Orszag a sexy nerd?

Washington learned this week that White House budget director Peter Orszag is good with the babes.

The bookish bureaucrat, 41, acknowledged that shortly before getting engaged to gorgeous ABC correspondent Bianna Golodryga, he sired a love child with his ex-girlfriend, Ivy-educated shipping heiress Claire Milonas.

All of which raises the question: what is it with this guy that seems to make the ladies swoon? Vote in the poll below on Orszag's apparent geek appeal.

orszag Orszag is the Director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Obama.

Is Bravo keeping it real?


VIEWERS' CHOICE: Bravo asked whether the Salahis should be part of "Real Housewives of D.C." (Getty Images)

The Bravo network is apparently toying with the idea of giving famed publicity junkies Michaele and Tareq Salahi a spot on its upcoming "Real Housewives of D.C." reality series.

Earlier this week, the network posted a poll on its site asking viewers whether a show featuring the Salahis would diminish their esteem for Bravo. The poll was yanked after the press got wind of the story Wednesday. But we'd still like to know what you think.

Let's talk it out

The nation let out a collective gasp yesterday at the news that Oprah Winfrey plans to end her daytime talk show at the end of its 25th season. Take a moment to envision an Oprah-less future. What do you see?

Carried Away?

Americans were transfixed yesterday as media outlets blared that a 6-year-old boy was trapped in a balloon screaming across the Colorado skies. It was great television. But it wasn't true. Now that we have the benefit of the full story, let's critique the media's coverage of the early moments.
