Racy photos surface of Miss California Carrie Prejean

"...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.



UNDER FIRE: First Miss California Carrie Prejean gets lambasted for expressing her views on same-sex marriage. Now she's being criticized -- and her Christian values are being questioned -- for some racy pictures that have turned up. She's not backing down and we kind of like her spunk even though we don't agree with her on the same-sex marriage issue. (RL)

WHAT BRITNEY WANTS: Chick-lit novels? Check. Flowers? Check. A bunch of magazines? Check. Marilyn Monroe movies? Oh, yeah. Those are just a few of Britney Spears' requests for her London hotel room where she'll be holing up for her tour next month. (RL)

SPECIAL DELIVERY: It sounds hard to believe, but the U.S. Postal Service has used some pretty unusual contraptions over the years to deliver mail. Maybe stamps wouldn't cost so much if the idea of Missile Mail had taken off. (RS)

CELEBRATING A LEGEND: All kinds of big-time folkies and rockers turned out Sunday night to celebrate the 90th birthday of the great Pete Seeger

, who performed and shared the stage with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews, Ani DiFranco, Emmylou Harris, and John Mellencamp. Here are some photos from the event.
