LAT In 90 Seconds

Yes We Clicked Through The Entire Thing: The LAT has been reading our wish-book again, this time posting a picture-book-thingy about Matthew McConaughey’s predilection to show of his pecks. When we got to the last frame we were miffed to find a totally clothed Matt Damon, but then we played the little YouTube video and felt much better.

34894749-05090800.jpgDesperate Times Call For Bizarre Sources: The Associated Press was so shut out of the Heath Ledger’s-parents-return-home story, that they made security guards their lede and were reduced to quoting a 58-year-old hospital catering supervisor.

35224184-04163000.jpgBush Mugs Elmo: On his way out of office, George Bush decided to kick a few 3-year-old in the face and announced plans to cut funds for public television and radio. Of course public broadcasting officials aren’t going to take that lying down. They’ll take it… sure, but they’ll be sitting upright, probably in their Eames chairs, when they do. (Before you write in, we know that the photo doesn’t match. But we were on such a roll of hotties this morning, we decided not to muck it up with a stupid Muppet’s mug. Or Elmo’s.)
