Sure, last weekend’s Voice-tacular went fine. Fine! It got much-better-than-decent ratings.

Or something like that. Read More
Daily News: Here are two sentences about something that happened yesterday in Jamaica, Queens: A cow escaped from a slaughterhouse and ran through a residential neighborhood. Police chased it into a backyard where they stunned the animal and then brought in animal control to take the cow away. Actually, here is a third: The cow Read More
New York Post: It’s happened before: Vanity Fair breaks some news, and the New York Post floods the non-Vanity Fair demographic with all the goods.
