Read this: White House 'third crasher' chat, Gilbert Arenas apologizes, Brit Hume advises Tiger Woods

Good afternoon, everyone. No, that isn't a vicious case of déjà vu! Yesterday we really did report on Carlos Allen, the third White House state dinner "crasher." It's like Thanksgiving weekend all over again!

Information is still spotty -- this morning we posted news of a possible Allen-Salahi connection -- but feel free to jump into our special edition "third crasher" chat, happening now. Submit questions here.

Elsewhere in today's news:

  • Oh, Gilbert Arenas! Your sense of humor is lost on us -- and perhaps also on law enforcement. Agent Zero apologized Monday for bringing guns to the Verizon Center as "a misguided effort to play a joke on a teammate." Meanwhile, prosecutors plan to present evidence to a Superior Court grand jury in the Arenas gun case as soon as today.

  • Tom Shales takes Brit Hume to task for saying, on national television, that Tiger Woods ought to convert from Buddhism to Christianity:

    Oh, but there was much more to it. Since Buddhism is so lacking in news-you-can-use, Hume continued -- sinking into his own mouth-made mire -- "My message to Tiger would be: Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world." Whom did he sound more like -- Mary Poppins on the joys of a tidy room, or Ron Popeil on the glories of some amazing potato peeler?
    You could almost hear the gears of YouTube turning as he spoke, and imagine the writers on "Saturday Night Live" trying to find ways other than the painfully obvious to satirize the moment and what it represents.

  • Lisa de Moraes brings you the latest on a lawless former "Deadliest Catch" contestant and the next cast of "Celebrity Apprentice" (Rod Blagojevich! Some pro wrestlers! Cyndi Lauper?).
