from the "Buyers" Beware dept.
Ah, those heady days are here no more. Jacksonville Public Library Director Ken Sivulich was given an ultimatum yesterday by the Library Board to either resign or be fired, and Sivulich chose the latter. This caps off seven years of service with the Jacksonville library system and a couple months of butting heads with Mayor John Peyton over a recent city administration decision to freeze all buying and hiring by the library. Peyton took this unusual step after commissioning a *snicker* graduate student to study library spending. Oh wait, did I post this to the wrong website?

from the But When Will They Show Osbournes Reruns? dept.
Oh, wait, that's a punishment... MTV has made the "surprising" decision to move six of its more risque videos (in this case, risque means just about anything from Britney to Incubus) to late-night only rotation following all of this Super Bowl hoopla. Said a suspiciously robotic MTV spokeswoman: "We always take into account what the cultural environment is on an ongoing basis. Given the particular sensitivity in the culture right now, we're erring on the side of caution for the immediate future." She added that the spare thirty minutes a day will be filled by a quick-cut montage of the Real World's trashiest hook-ups. Amen.

In the kind of unique interview that makes even President Bush wonder why she didn't prepare more, Britney Spears babbled to the Sun tabloid that it is her brother Brian who keeps a(n uncomfortably) close watch on her million-dollar backside. ""He'll be like, 'Britney, your ass is huge right now.' It makes me want to cry sometimes but I appreciate his honesty." Don't we all...

from the JACKSON! WHAT HATH THY TEAT WROUGHT? dept.
The bloody purges of the NFL Pro Bowl halftime show continued unchecked this last weekend! The Robespierres in charge of haltime entertainment guillotined dubious rock singer FeFe Dobson from the evening's festivities. They did it because, ummm... because, well you see she's black and a woman and she's a pop singer and... just think of the children! I mean, c'mon, she does have breasts, and they could pop out at any moment. NEVER AGAIN!
