Seriously? For real? Are these people out of their minds? Sadly, yes. Folks, I’m just too charged up to coherently comment on this absolutely ridiculous nonsense.

→ Another one of those great headlines: “Confirmed: Tennis Star Anna Kournikova Joining ‘The Biggest Loser’ As Trainer.” How awesome is your life if some editor pokes his head into your cubicle and says, “Hey, rumor has it Anna Kournikova might be a new trainer on ‘The Biggest Loser,’ I need you to get confirmation on that.” Keep marching on, society…keep marching on.
