Fugitive Slave Found In New York City

  • The Monologue:
    • There are some killer articles on the LeBron situation. And, yes, it's a "situation" at this point. Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone is always great on Bill Maher and here is a pretty good piece from him under a truly great title.
    • LeBron got booed outside of Carmelo Anthony's wedding in New York over the weekend. He then got booed inside when he waited for Jim Gray to show up before he would announce whether he was having the chicken or the fish.
    • Switzerland refused to extradite Roman Polanski. Taking a stand is a shocking reversal for them.
    • I'm sure I don't find this funny at all, but there's probably a twelve-year-old somewhere who would, unfortunately, laugh at this headline.
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • This, from the NCAA, is better than I could have hoped. Two play-in games between the lowest four automatic bids, two between the lowest four at-large teams. Could be a lot of fun (or at least half of it could be).
    • IFC channel is showing the full run of Freaks and Geeks. It's so good. I know I don't have to sing its praises. But it's so, so good.
    • Chad Ochocinco's VH1 dating show is sitting on my DVR right now. I know I rarely call out my wife, but, dude...
  • Random Music Video:
    • Sure, today marks the anniversary of the debuts of both The Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin, but they're both old! Who remembers them?! Instead, I'll point out that Robin Wilson, the lead singer of the Gin Blossoms, turns 45 today:
