The Arizona Cardinals unveiled on Thursday a re-designed team logo, updating the classic Cardinal head that has been synonymous with the team for decades. “This is just the latest in a series of exciting changes for the Cardinals over the last year that reflect a positive new direction for the franchise,” declared a team spokesman.

Irv Lorenzo, the "gangsta rap" impresario, has been charged with laundering money for one of New York's most notorious drug lords. That was his mistake, and a good lesson for you youngsters. The police and FBI keep an eye on notorious drug lords, and you can make just as much by laundering money for New York's humble, obscure drug lords. In fact, you can probably make more, because the unknowns don't have the bargaining power.

The trailer for The Nomi Song. The Trailer News website wrote, "The trailer is overflowing with cuts and keeps pace with an energetic soundtrack. Nomi is a bizarre subject not because he is some kind of supreme intellectual being, but because his art looks like it could be purchased from the neighborhood Goodwill. Buy some make-up and hair gel and suddenly you're an alien? Only in a world of drugs."
