Lockouts, and shutdowns and falls, oh my.

In a Washington Post op-ed about the possible NFL lockout, Senator Jay Rockefeller wrote that he’d like to see owners open their financial books to a neutral third party so that the players can see they are acting in good faith. Awesome. A trillionaire, lecturing billionaires, on how to deal with millionaires….

Meanwhile, $20 beers at the stadium anyone?

Anne Hathaway said she won’t insult her fellow actors, James Franco says that Ricky Gervais’s jokes weren’t funny. Translation, no need to fasten your seatbelts for the Oscars, it’s going to be a boring night.

Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne, 20, apparently is still working on finding sponsors for his Sprint Cup and Nationwide cars. Well, makes sense. He’s too young to test-drive a car by himself, too young to drink, and barely old enough to shave.

Speaker of the House John Boehner in 1995: When Bill Clinton played a round of golf just before the government shutdown he complained “Now is the time, not to play golf as the president did yesterday, now is the time to act.” John Boehner in 2011: went on a fundraising trip this week to Florida, and played a round of golf in Sarasota.

This year on American Idol, fans will be able to vote on Facebook. Up to a maximum of 50 votes per person. “Pikers”, responded voters in Chicago.

George Clooney said this week that he has “known” (euphemism mine) too many women ever to run for office.  Okay, was this man asleep or what during the Bill Clinton years?


Former President George W. Bush cancelled his keystone speeche at a Young President’s Organization event this weekend in Denver, because he said he didn’t want to be on the same program with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Interesting. Wonder who told W. who Assange is?

Several of the Detroit Pistons missed a practice shoot-around as a protest against their coach. Well, considering their 21-38 record, doesn’t sound like practice has been doing the team much good anyway.

Glenn Beck apologized for remarks he made on his radio show comparing Reformed rabbis to Islamic terrorists, saying “I was wrong on this. In this case I didn’t do enough homework.” This came as a shock to many Americans, who didn’t realize Beck ever did ANY homework..

Cavaliers 115, Knicks 109.  So Friday night Carmelo Anthony stars in the latest episode of “Karma’s a bitch.”

    It’s much less important to have “known” too many women, than how many actually remember you. In Clinton’s case, I’m sure he wished they never remembered him.
