Page 1 Consider (07/27)

  • Move Over, Lucy: Since they're on 33 times a day I've been watching a lot of "Will & Grace" reruns lately. How I'd forgotten just how hilarious Debra Messing is! The "Hydro Bra" episode had me in tears, and when her mom (the brilliant Debbie Reynolds) fixed Will up on a date with a guy from Grace's childhood I about died! (LIE)

  • The (Anticlimactic) View: The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd will join the panel of "The View." Sorry, but no Rosie, no interest. (LAT

  • Secrets and Lies: So first the U.S. military paraded Pat Tillman's picture saying he died a hero when he was killed by enemy fire. Then they admitted that he died from friendly fire. Now they think he was murdered? (AP)

  • This Principal Was Not His Pal: I've heard of being mad as hell and not taking it anymore, but this 16-year-old victim of bullies might have gone a little too far when he murdered his principal for not doing enough to help him. (365Gay)

  • Death to Breeders: A straight bashing in Palm Springs? (Advocate)

  • Beam Me Up, Please: I'm apparently the only person in the world who doesn't watch "Heroes" but this Zachary Quinto -- who plays the villainous Sylar -- sure is adorable. He's set to don a pair of pointy ears to play Mr. Spock in the newest installment of the Star Trek feature franchise, which may be enough for me to watch my first "Star Trek" anything ever. (HR)

  • The Diaper Diaries 2? A Navy man who got mad when someone mocked him as a "nerd" over the Internet climbed into his car and drove 1,300 miles from Virginia to Texas to teach the other guy a lesson. When he finally arrived, Tavares burned the guy's trailer down. (AP)

  • Mea Culpa Lite: Disgraced former prosecutor Mike Nifong acknowledged Thursday there is "no credible evidence" that three Duke lacrosse players committed any of the crimes he accused them of more than a year ago, offering for the first time a complete and unqualified apology. "We all need to heal," Nifong said. "It is my hope we can start this process today." Um, now you wanna let the healing begin, now that you've been rendered powerless? (AP)

  • Mr. Anita Bryant: Hotels and tourist attractions that depend on LGBT travelers are reportedly worried incendiary comments by Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jim Naugle about gays will result in a severe loss of business. Fort Lauderdale ranked No. 6 among gay travelers last year, and accounted for about 11 percent of Broward's $8.5 billion tourism industry. But over the past month Naugle has infuriated gays with homophobic remarks. Instead of protesting this guy why doesn't whoever had sex with him in a rest stop just come forward and get it over with. You know it's only a matter of time. (365Gay)

  • Honeymoon in New England: Gay couples from New Mexico can marry in Massachusetts because their home state has not explicitly banned same-sex marriage, officials said. New Mexico joins Rhode Island as the only states whose gay residents are allowed to marry in Massachusetts, which is the only state that allows same-sex marriage. (365Gay

  • Back to the Glass Castle: Jeannette Walls bids the Scoop and adieu. (MSNBC)

  • Blue Note: The legendary Etta James was in stable condition Thursday after being hospitalized for complications from abdominal surgery she had last month, her manager said. The 69-year-old blues singer was being treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Here's wishing her a speedy recovery. (AP)

      My God, Sherrie "I don't believe in evolution" Shepherd is going to be co-hosting The View? Never watching again...

    2. I don't watch Heroes either. I've seen parts of it, but it just doesn't seem interesting. But I find it incredible that you've never seen Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. That's such a good movie, but as your teacher Mr. Spock is fond of saying, there are always... possibilities.

    3. I've watched a few episodes of Heroes, and Zach Quinto is hotness on toast! I am all over that next Star Trek flick. He is perfect for a young Spock.
