Page 1 Consider (02/27)

  • Bombshell: The former ABC anchor Bob Woodward answered questions publicly Monday for the first time since the roadside bomb nearly killed him in Iraq on Jan. 29, 2006. ABC News is airing a prime-time special about Woodruff's recovery and the plight of other brain-injured Iraq veterans tonight at 10 p.m. EST. Sounds interesting; I sure wish I could look this hot after having part of my skull torn off by a roadside bomb (or even now). (WP)

  • Seal His Fate: Tennis great Roger Federer, who just passed Jimmy Connors record for most consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the ATP computer and seemed destined to be remembered as the greatest player of all time, will be honored with his stamp by the Swiss Post in April.. (NYT)

  • Cool It Now: Tragic Bobby Brown was arrested in Canton, Mass., while in town to watch his daughter at a cheerleading competition. Brown was picked up at Attleboro High School on Sunday night on a warrant for failing to appear at a child support hearing in October. Give me an E! Give me an M! Give me a B! Give me an A! Give me an R! Give me another R! Give me an A! Give me an S! Give me another S! Give me an I! Give me an N! Give me a G! What does it spell? EMBARRASSING!!!! (AP)

  • Fock Off: Even with a stellar cast that included Barbra Streisand and Dustin Hoffman "Meet the Fockers," the 2004 sequel to the hilarious "Meet the Parents," pretty much sucked ass (that one-joke kid routine was to blame). And now they're doing a third one? No one ever accused Hollywood of knowing when to leave well enough alone. (E!Online)

  • Cat's Meow: It's hard to believe this little cutie could kill someone. (AP)

  • More Than Name-Calling? A gay teenager who claims school officials in Grove, Okla., failed to provide him with a safe environment, resulting in an assault by another student, has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit. Nineteen-year-old Michale Bullis claims in the suit that between 2002 and 2005 he was routinely subjected to "name-calling and threats of physical harm and death." I'm glad kids are going after schools in these cases, but I can't help wondering if he hadn't spelled his name that retarded way if people might have left him alone. (365Gay)
