June 27, 2014

People are divided over whether ot not Kanye West teaching a college course in fashion should qualify as community service sentence for attacking a paparazzo last year. I'm just worried that unemployed dedicated teachers will thus be inspired to attack people in public in an effort to get hired.

Am I the only one who gets a kick out of not hearing anything about the latest book/movie/album/TV show that "everybody's talking about"?

Contestants in the Miss America pageant are required to be between 17 and 24 years of age. However, age is the reported reason that Amanda Longacre, 24, who won the title of Miss Delaware, was stripped of her title and replaced with runner-up Brittany Lewis, who is also 24. The difference is that Longacre's 25th birthday is only one month after the Miss America competition in September. Okay, the rule isn't new, and Longacre's birthday didn't change. Why didn't somebody say something before she won the crown? Chin up, Amanda; no offense to Miss Lewis, but a lot more people recognize the name Vanessa Williams than the name Suzette Charles (no offense, Miss Charles).

A number of critics are upset that Disney star Zendaya has been chosen to portray the late singer Aaliyah in a Lifetime biopic. The criticism is that Zendaya is not "black enough." Really? Why do people keep doing this?

 Why are people surprised by Don Johnson's statement that he will not watch his daughter play the lead in 50 Shades of Grey? I think it'd be a bigger story if he was looking forward to it.

House Speaker John Boehner says he plans to sue the president for misuse of power. My first question is: have people always been able to do this? Did any of the former administrations know?

The fire department in Tuebingen, Germany, had to rescue a 20-year-old American exchange student after the young man got stuck in a sculpture of a vagina ousisde the university clinic. Although no equipment was needed to extricate the student, it did take half an hour to pull him out. Who says no one appreciates art any more?

Jeremy Meeks, a/k/a "Hot Mugshot Guy", has been offered a modeling contract from a top Los Angeles modeling agency, based mostly on reaction to his mug shot on social media. Of course, the job will be waiting for him when he gets out of jail. I guess getting arrested can actually be a career move?

Note to Harrison Ford, 71, who broke his leg filming the new Star Wars epic, and Sylvester Stallone, 67, who's planning a fifth Rambo movie: who do you guys think you are? Betty White?

Now, a word that may or may not be intended for someone in particular: if love means never having to say you're sorry, maybe we'd have a better relationship if you hated me a little.
