News of the Day -- Feb. 19, 2008

+ Castro resigned and Musharraf was defeated in Pakistan but all that pales in comparison to the really big news: the new cast of "Dancing With the Stars" has been announced. We've got Priscilla Presley, Kristi Yamaguchi, Shannon Elizabeth, Steve Guttenberg and...uh...Adam Carolla, which reminds me that the term "star" is nebulous at best. (Get it, nebulous? Thank you, I'll be here all week. Enjoy the veal!) As it stands right now, I'll be rooting for Penn Jillette because he's a smart ass and Marlee Matlin because I have a secret girl crush on her from "The West Wing" days.

+ HD DVDs are no more, which is nice because now that means there's only one new technology I can't afford.

+ And finally, don't forget there will be a full lunar eclipse tomorrow night, confusing werewolves everywhere. It'll start around 8:45 EST and will be the last full lunar eclipse until 2010.

Unless we did the Time Warp, we're still in February, not January (re: subject line).

Oops! Have I mentioned it's been a stressful week?

Thanks for catching that. I'll fix it right now.

I have such an intellectual crush on Penn. Watching him try to behave on live Disney-owned TV is going to make this the best DwtS season EVER!

I forgot about it all being Disney owned. That will make it fun to watch!
