Ludacris shout-out and Jake Brown's fall

"...as human beings we are capable of making sense of situations based on the thinnest slice of experience."

Malcolm Gladwell, author of Blink and The Tipping Point.

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR: No doubt politicians welcome a friendly bump from entertainers who jump on their bandwagons, but sometimes maybe not so much. Ludacris gives Barack Obama a friendly shout-out rap style and, well, Obama's not so happy with it. (RL)

WOW: Never say these guys aren't athletes. As this year's X Games continued this weekend, people still couldn't forget about skateboarder Jake Brown's four and a half story plummet last year. (RL)

JAY LENO CAN RELAX: Even though the world's oldest joke has been discovered, it's not very funny. (RS)
