  • THREE MILE ISLAND: Less entertaining than the American Music Awards

>> Google's world take-over is getting a little out-of-hand, right? If only someone would stop them ... Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. is reportedly teaming up with Microsoft to remove links from Google searches to its papers and instead featured them on Microsoft's new Bing search engine. Somehow the strengthening of two evil monopolies doesn't sound that much better. (ABC News)

>> After last year's solemn scene and the rest of the country stricken by the recession, it surprisingly appears that this year's annual art extravaganza, Art Basel Miami, will be the biggest ever with more floor space, parties and events. The strong return diminishes the claim that the art market is dead, and more importantly, reaffirms the fact that nouveau riche will buy anything. (NYMag.com)

>> Some opponents of the health care reform have decided to print out the bill single-sided (instead of the usual double-sided) as a 2,074-page prop in protest of the drastic proposal. While they may be anti- health care reform, these politicans are definitely not pro-environment. (Gawker)

>> CNN, USA Today and Fox News have all reportedly confused Sarah Palin's new book Going Rogue with the parody Going Rouge, which has a near identical cover. It seems neither of the two books, however, were actually written by Palin. (Page Six)

>> And finally in trivial news: Workers were sent home and the facility was cleaned this weekend after test showed a contamination at Pennsylvania nuclear plant Three Mile Island. One worker received 16 millirems of exposure, yet officials didn't notify the state until 5.5 hours after the leak. They were probably too busy watching this weekend's crazy AMA's. (Fox News)
