The weasel of the day award goes to The College Board. The Board, which owns the SAT college entrance exam, is demanding that its chief critic remove from its web site data showing that minority and poor students scored lower than white and upper-class kids. Why, you ask? Because it is false? Nope. Because it is misleading? Nope. The College Board claims their critics violated copyright law by posting the scores without permission! They issued no response to the actual criticisms. In other words, their response is basically this: "Yes, it is true that our test completely sucks, and everything our critics say is correct. But the copyright laws permit us to keep that a secret!!!" I believe this is known as the Richard Nixon "you can't criticize the President because it is harmful to national security" defense.

The Box Office for Friday shows Closer doing better than expected, earning fourth place - and within a shout of second place - despite being on just 476 screens. It took in twice as much as Alexander, on 1/5 as many screens!

OLIVER Stone's next film will explore the possibility of an affair between former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and President Ronald Reagan. No problem for me, as long as Jessica Alba plays the young, foxy Thatcher in the sex scenes.

From the "I didn't make up one word of this" department: Denver Christmas Parade denies Christian groups a float for caroling, but allows one for Lesbian & Transgendered Native Americans. I would write a letter of protest, but I'm too busy. I'm the soloist for the Carpet Caroling tonight at my Lezmas party.

Brad Pitt has revealed he was told to sign up for acting classes when he first started attending Hollywood auditions. It's a shame he didn't listen.

Supermodel Klum Dishes Pearls of Wisdom, Saucy Pix: "When supermodel Heidi Klum decided to write a book, she didn't want it to be just a picture book. She wanted to offer some words of wisdom. Of course the book, 'Heidi Klum's body of knowledge,' does have pictures -- 400 of them to be precise, including a number of nude shots."

Our first look at the trailer for The Wedding Crashers. Comedy starring the usual; suspects: Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. The film follows two sneaky guys who crash weddings to meet women. Things get complicated, however, when Wilson's character falls hard for a bridesmaid (McAdams) whose family is American royalty -- her dad is the secretary of the treasury (Christopher Walken).
