Page 1 Consider (07/17)

  • Bringing Laugh-In Back: I don't understand the appeal of Justin Timberlake's music, so perhaps a variety show is his calling. (OhLaLaMag)

  • Favorite 'Son': Man on the street (dodging bullets) interviews with Iraqis show that they overwhelming like Barack Obama, mainly because he's Muslim-ish, but many have qualms about the senator's withdrawal method. (NYT)

  • Who's That Girl? The Styles section dissects Madonna's descent from fashion icon to soccer mom. (NYT)

  • The Fight Continues: The California Supreme Court declined on Wednesday to hear a challenge to a ballot measure asking voters to ban same-sex marriage. (365Gay)

  • Say Goodbye to Shea: Billy Joel became the first musician to headline at Yankee, Giants and Shea stadiums. And he will be the last to play Shea with his second concert on Friday. Michael was at last night's show and said it as great. Tony Bennett, John Mellencamp, John Mayer and Don Henley made appearances at this end-of-an-era showcase. (NYT)

  • This Just In: Star Jones' soon-to-be-ex husband, Al Reynolds, still isn't gay. (NYP)

  • Alphabet Soup: Now they're saying that Jesse Jackson used the "N-word" when talking about Barack Obama. Does that stand for "nuts" or "nigger"? I'm so confused. (AP)

  • Serving in Silence: The Military Personnel Subcommittee of the House Armed Services Committee will hold a hearing later this month on the impact of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law banning service by openly lesbian, gay and bisexual service members. The hearing will be the first since Congress enacted policy 15 years ago. (BayWindows)
