This has got to be one of the dumbest stories to ever come out of the entertainment industry.

Just go read -- and make sure to follow the links in the story.
UPDATE: Sara watched the VMAs and didn't understand, but not in a bad way. Who could expect ANYONE to understand what happened when the presenter and the receiver didn't get what was going on! For more, read this.

From the Associated Press:
"LOS ANGELES- The body of Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal journalist kidnapped and slain by Islamic militants, was returned Thursday to the United States, a family spokesman said.

Poor Martha Stewart probably has her hand-embroidered panties in a wad again today. The House Energy and Commerce Committee has requested e-mails, business records and additional info on her phone records as it expanded the probe into her sale of ImClone shares the day before they tanked.

The multimedia maven better get cooking: she has until Aug. 20 to supply the requested records before the committee subpoenas them.
It could be a good thing.
