Hello ladies!

So who saw this woman on TV yesterday? You know, the one who was arrested for allegedly taking her daughter to a tanning salon and causing her a severe sunburn?

I thought TV viewers were being Punk’d. She claims her daughter was in the room with her, but did not get in the tanning booth, and the sunburn was caused by playing outside. What say you? Did she deserve to be arrested? Did school officials overreact in reporting the incident to police?

The John Edwards trial continues, and every day of testimony makes him seem like an even bigger tool. Is anyone following the trial? I can’t bear to, it’s all so tawdry and pathetic.

I loved this clip of Fox News anchor Shepard Smith declaring politics “weird” and “creepy.” He was inspired by a Mitt Romney statement lauding Newt Gingrich and his wife Callista for their support of his campaign, and calling them dear friends. Heh.

What’s on your mind today? Chat away!
