  • The Hep A-List: An employee of Wolfgang Puck Catering diagnosed with the Hepatitis A virus may have exposed a number of high-profile guests -- among them Leonardo DiCaprio and Beyonce Knowles -- at several events, including Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue party, health officials said Tuesday. Anyone who sampled the Crepes Pam Anderson, the Eggs Steven Tyler or the Judd Stew should contact their physician as soon as possible. (AP)

  • Blog of Revelations: Experts say 'Jesus tomb' is a fantasy. Stop!!!!! (AFP)

  • Becks Appeal: Former Spice Girl Victoria "Posh" Beckham has signed a deal with NBC for her own reality show. OK, OK. We'll call it your show -- maybe "Being Victoria Beckham" -- just like we called it Bobby Brown's. I know why I might tune in. (Reuters)
  • Tea & Sympathy: Retired and recently "out" basketball player John Amaechi was on "The Daily Show" last night and I don't think he could be a more affable bloke. He claims his gay friends used to all hang around and he's certain his teammates "knew," but chose to just think he was "being British." (Outsports)
  • Low Miles: A 23-year-old woman has been arrested for selling her 5-month-old boy to a couple in Pueblo, Colo. At least she did it for a good reason. (AP)
  • Heartless: I know we shouldn't be surprised that President Bush married him a woman who is as big a moron as he is, but you would think that as the nation's first lady and a mother of two that Laura Bush wouldn't be callous enough to dismiss the suffering of the Iraqi people: "Many parts of Iraq are stable now. But, of course, what we see on television is the one bombing a day that discourages everybody." Yeah, it's so awful that we have to watch that on TV, Laura. Poor us. Who knew her mouth could be more destructive than her driving acumen? (AmericaBlog)
  • Big Ruling: A mother who feared she might lose custody of her 218-pound 8-year-old son unless he lost weight was allowed to keep the boy after striking a deal Tuesday with social workers to safeguard his welfare. They celebrated with a trip to an all-you-can-eat buffet and an ice cream cake for one. (AP)
  • O Canada: Canada's Supreme will deliver a ruling Thursday on what is considered the biggest gay class action suit every filed, involving the pensions of deceased gay partners. Those partners paid into the government run Canada Pension Plan most of their working lives, but unlike heterosexual pensioners, when they died their survivor benefits were not paid to their surviving partners.
