125 large lakes have completely disappeared from Siberia since 1970. No, it's not a Twilight Zone thing. It's an Arctic warming thing. (The article presents some hypotheses.)

Tony Award results.
  • The Tonys did manage to hang on to their last thin thread of respectability by not declaring Tim Curry to be "best actor" - but he was nominated! I submit that it is not possible to assemble any group of fifty or more actors in which Tim Curry is one of the top five. It would not be easy to assemble a group of six actors in which Curry is in the top five unless I allow you to include Shatner.

Britney's show hits the skids. The ratings for the first three shows: 1.9, 1.5, 1.1 respectively. Next stop: XFL territory.

A Dubya classic "Which state is Wales in?" And I'm not "disassembling."

Cinderella Man fails to crack the top three.
  • Madagascar emerged atop a virtual three-way tie between the carry-overs.
  • The Longest Yard had the highest revenues per screen
  • Lords of Dogtown and Cinderella Man underperformed relative to the expectations of The Weekend Warrior. (See table below.) Dogtown barely managed higher per-screen revenues than Crash, which is in its fifth week. Cinderella Man opened with a passable, but uninspired $18 million


TitleWarrior Prediction ActualDiff %
Madagascar$27.5$28.7+4
Star Wars: Episode III$26.5$26.0-2
Cinderella Man$23.8$18.6-22
The Longest Yard$23.0$26.1+13
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants$10.3$10.2-1
Lords of Dogtown$8.5$5.7-33
Monster-in-Law$6.0$5.3-16
Crash$3.5$3.3-6
Kicking and Screaming$2.4$2.1-13

MTV Jabs at Award Show Conventions. That show is always a lot of fun. The Oscars could learn a lot from MTV.

Penn's new daughter. Assuming he is telling the truth, which is not likely, Penn Jillette gets the award for the silliest name for a celebrity baby: Moxie Crimefighter Jillette. Teller was not available for comment. Well, technically he was available. He just didn't say anything.

North Carolina woman charged in slaying of fortuneteller. And, I might add, obviously not a very good fortuneteller.
