As if it couldn't get worse ...

Britney Spears is hanging out with Paris Hilton. But that ain't the bad part, these ladies have decided to take up pole dancing. OK, this must now stop. Ms. Spears is bordering on the crazy. Nobody hangs out with Paris Hilton, not even her pets.
Ya'll remember when her dog ran away? What about when that monkey thing bit her? I think Britney is going to realize that it is something about Paris that even animals can't overlook, and they're animals.
And in more sad and outrageous news involving our law enforcement, cops in Wilmington, N.C., shot and killed an 18-year-old over a freakin' PlayStation 3. You read right, a PS3. This is ridiculous - a video game people.
First off, the kid was suspected of stealing two PS3s from UNCW students. The kid was a student at Cape Fear Community College. Now, the police were investigating this kid and another student and that led police to bust through the front door. Again, over a video game console.
Whether these kids stole these PS3s is a moot point, the real issue is the fact that the consoles were considered property and I don't recall any police breaking down doors to recover stolen TVs, jewelry or PS2s. So why is this different?
The Associated Press quoted the New Hanover County Sheriff Sid Causey saying, "If this boy would’ve come to the door, opened the door, we probably wouldn’t be talking." The man said that to the press. Again I say, over a d--- video game!!!
Where is the justice in that? You stole video game consoles so we're going to shoot you? The kid's roommate was quoted saying that the kid was unarmed but may have had a video game controller in his hand.
Now I'm not the most intelligent person in the world, but I am kinda smart and I am guessing that if we suspect this kid has stolen a PS3, the hottest console on the market, he is going to play with it. If it was suspected that he had a gun in his hand, why not follow protocol and tell him to drop the weapon - before you shoot. Just a suggestion.
And to top it all off, they shot the kid's dog. Now what did the dog have to do with anything? He can't play the game because he ain't got no thumbs!!! He can't use the L3 or R3 controls. I am outdone.
And I have to say something about Danny DeVito. Come on now, doesn't that little fella look like he can put away some drinks? I, for one, am not surprised he showed up at The View a lil' sauced. Since Star left I almost have to drink to watch the show, let alone be around those heifers.
Come on, ya'll know it has become The Rosie O'Donnell Show with four sidekicks. I'm just saying, DeVito could have very well gone out with George Clooney the night before and gotten a little tipsy, but he had a good reason to go to the show drunk.
