'Clooney donates Oscars swag to hurricane victims'

Actor-director George Clooney, who won the best supporting actor Oscar this year for Syriana, has donated his luxury items-laden Oscars gift bag for auction to benefit US hurricane victims, a leading charity said today.

And isn't it adorable how this same Ozzie news article juxtaposes Clooney's saintedness, with our government's evergreen ineptitude? Positively brilliant.

Oscar Guests May Be Hit with Taxes

Guests who took home gift bags from the 78th Annual Academy Awards may have to pay $30,000 in taxes on their acquisitions.

The Internal Revenue Service has declared that the bags given count as taxable income.

Confused? This Brussells Journal article won't help a lick (double entendre optional).
While there are discussions aplenty about the march of militant radical Islam. And whether or not the West has the stomach, gumption, or even simple will to stand and face it. But lost in the simple, is the ridiculous. Sadly, strangely, I know we have nowhere reached/plumbed the depths of contemporary political insanity. Paul Belien's: 'Not even close. Jihad: It’s about Abortion and Gays, Stupid! Or Isn’t It?' Is still very much recommended, none the less.

Venezuelans to Gather and Pose in the Nude

"I chose a location to me that was beauty and chaos combined — organized chaos," Tunick said Thursday. "I'd probably be arrested for doing this and charged with a crime in half of the United States, so I'm honored to be here in Caracas and not be arrested."
