. . . continues with this bit of news about porn "star"/whore Jenna Jameson getting "immortalized" by the notorious Madame Tussauds House of Wax in Vegas:
LAS VEGAS, Aug. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Jenna Jameson, the adult film superstar and pop culture icon, was immortalized in wax today at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.
Ms. Jameson, a Las Vegas native, unveiled her life-sized wax figure during a special ceremony at Madame Tussauds on the Las Vegas Strip. The partially nude, interactive figure portrays Ms. Jameson kneeling on a bearskin rug and displays all of her well-known tattoos. She also wears her original "Jenna" black leather belt with her name in rhinestones.
"This is an awesome honor," Ms. Jameson said after the unveiling, "especially since I'm making history as the first personality from the adult world to have an attraction at Madame Tussauds, and it is happening in Las Vegas, my hometown. I was so excited when asked to be part of Madame Tussauds incredible collection and even more excited to see my figure .... it looks so real!"
Like all Madame Tussauds interactive figures, visitors can pose for photographs with Ms. Jameson and when you tickle the tattoo on her right ankle, she whispers a personal message. Her attraction is displayed next to the one of Playboy Publishing founder Hugh Hefner, with whom she shares the same birth date, April 9.
So now young women everywhere can visit the House of Wax, get a touch of the whore and dream about growing up to be just like Jenna. Shouldn't be too hard just requires a lot of kneeling and lying down. Now how cool is that?

Alicia Keys is finally talking openly about her relationship with boyfriend Kerry “Krucial” Brothers, the longtime producer of her music and partner in their production company Krucial Keys.
In the new issue of Sister 2 Sister magazine, the singer/songwriter tells founder Jamie Foster Brown that she kept a lock on her goods for 12 months before moving the relationship to a sexual level.
"I made him wait a year because my body is too beautiful to be violated by someone who doesn't deserve it," she said. .
Keys, until now, has kept her relationship with Brothers on the low. They have known each other since both were teenagers frequenting New York’s underground rap Mecca, Lyricist Lounge – Keys as an aspiring singer, Brothers as a burgeoning rapper.We live in a society that trivializes sex every chance it gets, especially in Hollywood where the likes of Paris Hilton, celebrity groupies and "Girls Gone Wild" are celebrated to such a degree that the concept of a star on the level of Alicia Keys choosing abstinence comes off as being completely foreign. So while many won't find this bit of news to be significant, in a society where young women are often pressured to grow up too fast and role models are far and few, Keys' choice is not only wise, but it shouldn't be taken for granted.

Surprise, surprise. Howard Dean Says Lieberman Should Dump Independent Bid.
WASHINGTON - The Democratic Party's boss says it's time for Joe to go.
Adding his voice to a chorus of other leaders, Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Sunday that Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman should drop his independent bid against Ned Lamont, the anti-war candidate who knocked him off in last week's primary.
"I know how hard this is for Joe, and he is a good person, but the truth is, I lost one of these races, and I got behind my party's nominee, and I think that is what you have to do if you want to help this country," Dean said on NBC's "Meet the Press."
"The way to help this country is to limit Republican power," he said.
Let's face it, if this doesn't motivate the Lieberman campaign, nothing will. After all, listening to Howard Dean talk politics is getting to be almost as silly as listening to Al Gore discuss global warming.

Usually when you read a sports column you expect to read about sports, but lately popular NY Daily News columnist Mike Lupica has been using his articles (esp. in his weekly "Shooting From The Lip" column) to give readers political insights from his obviouslywarped Left-leaning brain:
Says Liberal Mike:
Boy, the Republicans sure did get sweet on Sen. Joe Lieberman all of a sudden.
He's probably wondering where all the love was back in 2000 when the same guys stole an election from him and Gore.
All these yahoos who come rushing to defend George Bush's war in Iraq when an anti-war guy like Ned Lamont wins a primary in Connecticut - when do you suppose they'll be lined up to have their own kids go fight?
And you always have to ask why a big, tough war guy like Cheney set a world's record for draft deferments when he had the chance to go pick up a gun.
His boss kept Alabama safe when he was a young buck.
Those are the words from a "sports journalist" whose ego is so huge that he knows that he can exploit his expert opinion on sports to impart political commentary for the mostly young, white male sports nuts who read his work.
