Juliet might want to take her own life all over again if she knew the gooey depths to which Hollywood would sink in her name to woo an audience.

Rush Limbaugh has finally come up with a positive and ingenious idea. He is leaving the country and going to Costa Rica, if health care reform passes. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
