  • Gay activist Lt. Dan Choi, a discharged soldier best known for protesting the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy, has been hospitalized. "I was involuntarily committed to the Brockton MA Veterans Hospital Psychiatric Ward on Friday Morning after experiencing a breakdown and anxiety attack," he wrote in an e-mail to supporters Tuesday. Choi said that all veterans carry "human burdens" but that he felt betrayed by "elected leaders and gay organizations as well as many who have exploited my name," according to the blog Pam's House Blend.

  • Rip Torn pleaded guilty Tuesday to breaking into a Connecticut bank last January-- while drunk, with a loaded gun -- that he thought was his home. No jail; the 79-year-old actor got a suspended sentence, a three-year probation, and will undergo random drug and alcohol testing.
