Page 1 Consider (11/26)

  • Growing Up (Not) Gotti: You gotta love NYT columnist Clyde Haberman for calling bullshit on Irving and Christopher Lorenzo, the hip-hop producers from Queens, who decided one day that they wanted to be known as Irv and Christopher Gotti. You may have read about these self-made Gottis. They are on trial in Brooklyn, accused by federal prosecutors of using their record label, the Inc., formerly Murder Inc., to launder drug money: "One of these days, a jury will decide their guilt or innocence. Wouldn't it be more exciting, though, if the jurors could also render a verdict on the Lorenzos' taste in names?" (NYT)
  • Reservation in Hell: I defy you to read this article about the girl with cerebral palsy who got hit with a light fixture during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade without dying laughing. (NYT)
  • Duke It Out: It seems that Teen People has sent a story about Nazi pop-tarts Lynx and Lamb Gaede to the gas chambers after an unauthorized staffer promised the girls' mother that the magazine would avoid using such sweet words as "hate," "supremacist" and "Nazi" in the piece. You know how touchy those white pride types can be. (NY Daily News)
  • Goodbye, Arnold: Pat Morita Dies at 73 (AP)
  • Questions Bob Woodward has not answered (Online Journal)
  • American Heroes: Names of the dead (NYT)

      i don't understand why they'd want an adult who can't speak and a child to be on a morning talk show just because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. who cares? they weren't hurt. why waste valuable resources on this when nick lachey is now single and we have no idea what he's up to?
