Quote of the Week: The rich girls steal, the pretty girls lie, the smart girls play dumb, and the dumb girls spend their days trying to be all of the above. (Caleb, Pretty Little Liars)
Song of the Week: When the Night Comes - Dan Auerbach (Lights Out)
Big News of the Week: Keith Olbermann Fired: After the shooting in Arizona there was a lot of talk about civility, and I thought it was just that: talk, and it would die down and we would be back to politics as usually within a month. Surprisingly last Friday MSNBC fired the biggest offender of lack of civility (and their highest rated talking head), Mr. Worst Persons in the World himself Keith Olbermann. Now if only Glen Beck, Sean Hannity and Rachel Maddow follow him into the unemployment line we can actually get back to civility.
Ironically, shortly afterwards it was announced that Aaron Sorkin was working with HBO on a series about the backstage of a cable new show much like Countdown with Keith Olbermann, note that Olbermann former gig on Sportscenter was the inspiration for Sports Night.

Next Week Pick of the Week: Super Bowl XLV, All Day Next Sunday, Fox: Even if you a fan of one of the teams playing, it is wise to stay in the comfort of your own home and watch the game on your HDTV because word on the streets of Texas that there is a rapist in Arlington and he’s climbing in your windows, he’s snatching your people up trying to rape them. So y’all need to high your kids, hide your wife. In fact you may want to hide your husband ‘cause they’re raping everybody out there. After the big game is a new episode of Glee which I’ll probably have to skip because I liked the show a lot better when it was called Kids Incorporated.
