Katy Perry and cleavage banned from 'Sesame Street'

"...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.

STREET NONSENSE: The folks at Sesame Street have banned pop singer Katy Perry from the show after her segment -- singing a number with Elmo -- featured her sporting what some viewers felt was too much cleavage. The clip is still available on Youtube so that parents who really want their kids to receive a bit of education from Perry can watch her. No word yet on Elmo's reaction. RL

IT'S OFFICIAL: The folks at American Idol have announced what's been expected for weeks: replacing SImon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi are Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler and pop singer Jennifer Lopez. The announcement was made Wednesday in Los Angeles as a new crop of amateur singers auditioned for the show. This just in: Steven Tyler has officially lost all his rock cred. RL

HMMMM: It's an interesting concept: praying for atheists. Given that an atheist doesn't believe in a higher power, i.e. God, then there's an existential dilemma going on here where you're asking someone or something to help someone who doesn't believe in that thing. We're not sure how that plays out in the cosmos. With that said, outspoken atheist Christopher Hitchens has cancer and Monday (Sept. 20) is "Everybody Pray for Hitchens Day." We especially like how he breaks down the prayers into three groups, which we're guessing is pretty accurate in terms of human nature. RL
