Britney's Stalker



"A judge issued a permanent injunction Tuesday ordering a Japanese businessman to stay away from pop idol Britney Spears, ruling he was "was abnormally obsessed and fixated with Spears.""

Actually, I couldn't really care any less about this story. Wouldn't have read it at all except it popped up on a broken hyperlink to a story I had wanted to read.

Just one question though. What, exactly, is your definition of the word 'permanent'?

Merriam-Webster defines it as "continuing or enduring without fundamental or marked change." 'Lasting' is a synonym they give. I'd agree with that.

Of course I'm not a judge:

"The permanent injunction calls for Shizawa to stay 300 yards away from Spears for three years."

Apparently forever is three years.

ABC



They are owned, everyone knows, by Disney. They own, everyone knows, everything not owned by Time Warner (ok, I exaggerate...a little).

Are there any good shows on ABC? Well, to be honest, there's 'Alias'. And 'I'm With Her' is cute, in a 'Notting Hill' kind of way. Other than that, there's...well...'Monday Night Football'.

Why bring this up? They've brought back, in a hollow shadow image, their TGIF lineup. Once the proud home of Urkel and now the home of 'Married to the Kellys.'

Haven't seen it. Won't watch it now.

At least they edited it. Barely.

"Those who actually watch it all the way through may be shocked to learn that tonight's version of the premiere is actually a new, improved one. In a previous incarnation, a different actress was cast as the young wife, and the fat uncle had a tasteless bit of bigotry to express.
At the dinner table, told that Meyer's character is half-Jewish, the uncle originally said, "The Jews -- aren't they the ones who killed our Lord?" In the revised pilot, he just keeps repeating "aren't they the ones -- " while others at the table interrupt him. It's a small change, but at least it makes "Married to the Kellys" relatively inoffensive, if not one tiny bit funnier."


No, it's not now 'relatively inoffensive.' It's, in a way, even worse than originally written. They figured it might offend. Did they excise it? No.

They white-washed it.

Anti-semitic cowards.
