But watch as a celebrity like Jessica Alba defaces property multiple times and she gets away with it with a quick signature on one of her checks. I wonder how many minutes of work it’ll take for her to make that money back. Notice that this time around when the property owners shrug off pursuing the matter, the police back off as well. Maybe Joseph Carnevale should have done a couple of “nude” scenes as well. I would suggest Jessica Alba cover his legal fees but we all know that won’t happen.
The cool thing is that the government is printing up these coupons where you can basically get a converter box for a small amount of money. Neat, right? Never mind that they’re spending tax money to support businesses and all that.
Here’s the problem. The change over occurs on February 17th, right? As I read the article, the coupons won’t be going out until the converter boxes are in stores. No problem with that but the boxes themselves aren’t due until “the end of February or first of March.“
Anyone else concerned about the boxes not being available until after the change over occurs?

Well yet another Disney star is in trouble. You would have thought by now that Disney would have done something to mentor these folks. Seems like every time you turn around, another one is in trouble and it’s all over the news.
It’s a pity though that this time it’s a Kim Possible actress.
What’s next? Christy Carlson Romano doing a sex scene on Family Guy? Oh wait. She did. Link.
TV star Kirsten Storms was arrested for DUI in September 2007, in LA. Kirsten, who voices the cheerleader Bonnie Rockwaller in Disney’s “Kim Possible”, was arrested after failing field sobriety tests.
Anyone else troubled over the legal battle going on over who the father of Anna Nicole Smith’s baby is? Sure, we now know that Dickhead, I mean Birkhead is the father. of course we now also know that Dickhead, I mean Birkhead was sleeping around with Smith who, in turn was sleeping around with a whole mess of other guys.

I’m surprised Larry Flint didn’t step forward with a claim.
