The nerd who brought down a legend
"At 6:14 a.m. on Wednesday, April 4, relatively few people were tuned into the 'Imus in the Morning Show' when Don Imus referred to the Rutgers women's basketball team as 'nappy-headed ho's.' Ryan Chiachiere was. A 26-year-old researcher in Washington, D.C., for liberal watchdog organization Media Matters for America, he was assigned to monitor Mr. Imus's program. Mr. Chiachiere clipped the video, alerted his bosses and started working on a blog post for the organization's Web site."

Multicultural political correctness gone batshit: Norwegian women responsible for being raped by minority men.
"Unni Wikan, a professor of social anthropology at the University of Oslo, in 2001 said that 'Norwegian women must take their share of responsibility for these rapes' because Muslim men found their manner of dress provocative. The professor's conclusion was not that Muslim men living in the West needed to adjust to Western norms, but the exact opposite: 'Norwegian women must realize that we live in a Multicultural society and adapt themselves to it.'"

Friday box office results
EXCLUSIVE EARLY 3-DAY ESTIMATES: Shia Rising - 'Disturbia' To Win Easily w/$21 million; 'Stranger' Stumbles to 4th Place Finish w/$10.9 mil; 'Pathfinder' 6th; 'Redline' 8th

Disturbia took in $8.2 million Friday, compared to only $3.7 million for the Bruce Willis - Halle Barry thriller. They were expected to run neck-and-neck, but this is one case where the reviews may have made a real difference. Critics tended to give Shia some thumbs up while turning the ol' thumbs mostly down for Bruno.

Pathfinder pulled in about $1.6 million, Redline $1.4m, Aqua Teen $1.3.

As a result of competing against two other thrillers with far bigger footprints, Ray Liotta's Slow Burn bombed completely at $300,000.

In further comeuppance for its arrogance, Grindhouse fell to tenth place, behind five of the six new releases.
