Wednesday morning, 9:25 a.m. Frankie Goes to Hollywood is playing on the iPod.
ITEM!: Rush Limbaugh has accused actor Michael J. Fox of exaggerating his Parkinson's Disease during a political ad advocating stem cell research. Um, what kind of vile person is Limbaugh? I mean, we all kind of know that he's a dispicable on-air personality, but this latest attack against someone suffering from a life-threatening neurological disorder is ridiculous beyond the desire to just get numbers and people fired up. He's made some kind of half-assed apology, but the whole thing leaves a sick taste in my mouth. Did he miss the day at school when we all learn to think before putting our mouths in motion?
ITEM!: Madonna and her new adopted kid. Who cares. For someone who has such a stranglehold on her image, as she always has had, she's sure mucked up this public relations idea. Celebrities, celebrities, celebrities: just because it works for Angelina Jolie does not mean it will work for you. This flap of an adoption, including the kid's father making comments and the like, is a disaster. But how does one bail their way out? You can't give the kid back; just make the whole thing go away from my pop-culture atmosphere, please?
ITEM!: I have no desire whatsoever to see that new Borat movie. Is anyone interested in this film at all? It's fun that this actor has the country of Kazakhstan in a snit, but beyond that, the whole thing looks too stupid for words.
ITEM!: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have announced their wedding date: November 18. They'll be married at a secret location in Italy. I'll be watching my mailbox for the invitation.
