A Few Things We Couldn't Help Noticing
The Today Show's Ann Curry is at it Again. A couple years ago we noted that the Today Show's Ann Curry was improbably rallying people to be warriors for truth. Now, she's supposedly "pissed off" about how hard it is to get her network or the American public to care about serious foreign news. We have a suggestion, Ann: if you want to be known as a serious news person, work in a real news environment, not the televised equivalent of a perfume counter.
These Animal Activists Have Officially Lost Their Minds. The world economy is nearing a melt-down, if global warming doesn't literally beat it to the punch. But the boneheads at PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, are all bent out of shape about how Obama killed a mosquito rather than trapping it and releasing it to the wilds. We suggest you get a life, folks.
And Speaking of the Huffington Post...Washington D.C.'s alternative weekly, City Paper, recently produced a pretty good spoof of the online pub.
We Couldn't Make This Up if We Tried. The New York Daily News looks at what the stars of a memorable movie, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, have been up to since. It turns out that Ferris' arch-nemesis, the creepy principal, is now a registered sex offender.
Web-Friendly TV. Wired Magazine takes a look at how the new Jimmy Fallon show is among TV's most web-friendly programs.
Finally, We rather liked the name of this new blog, Peace Through Fiction (the companion website is here). It doesn't hurt that we know this Cleveland-based writer, Nicole Hunter, a little. Good luck with it, and with your MFA studies, Nicole.
