Ever since the Eliot Spitzer scandal, the story of the high-end prostitute has been on the tip of everyone's tongue. I wouldn't be surprised if a major motion picture came out sometime in the next few years with a similar story. Actually, that should probably be a definite.

Lewis Black Says “America Is For Sale”

Lewis Black did one of his rants on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart last week. As usual, he makes a lot of broad assumptions, shouts a lot, and basically looks like a crazy person. Does he have some good points though? Check it: I've got no beef with Black harping on the Chrysler Building and Trump's Mansion getting sold, but so callous and mean-spirited to the King of Beers? If we lived in a …

JetBlue is looking for a little help.  They need 1000 volunteers to trial their bag check and security systems at its new John F.
