  • Fashion designer John Galliano's chances of getting his job at Dior back just got worse; on Monday, the Sun in Britain posted a video of Galliano telling two women, "I love Hitler." Last week, police arrested the designer after another encounter at the same cafe, where he was accused of leveling anti-Semitic slurs. Dior has suspended Galliano from his responsibilities, pending an investigation into the incidents.

  • What makes a congressman take photos of himself wearing a tiger suit, then e-mail the snaps to his staff? Nobody can know for certain, but it could have been the drugs, Rep. David Wu (D-Ore.) told the Associated Press on Monday. Wu said there was at least one instance where his mixture of mental-health medications had "knocked me off my can." Spokesman Erik Dorey identified the drugs as a mixture of the sleep aid Ambien and a generic form of Valium, which Wu used for anxiety and stress. However, Wu denies that the medication is to blame for his erratic behavior.
