Short Takes

Bye bye, Tucker: "CNN said goodbye to pundit Tucker Carlson on Wednesday, and with him likely the "Crossfire" program that has been the granddaddy of high-volume political debate shows on cable television..."I guess I come down more firmly in the Jon Stewart camp," [Chief Executive Jonathan] Klein told The Associated Press.

The Bush twins are having Kid Rock perform at their inaugural party, he with the four-letter-word-peppered lyrics. Where's the moral values police?

Still on the inauguration, my lips pucker at the thought: "Guy Hovis, a vocalist from Tupelo, Miss., who performed on the Lawrence Welk show, will sing, “Let the Eagles Soar,” a song written by Attorney General John Ashcroft."

Sick and tired of Fox and Fox wannabes? Have no fear, Gore TV is almost here: "...it will be called INdTV (say it like "indie"), aims to wow the youth market, has set up shop in San Francisco and is supposed to launch this year."

The Economist is running a competition for the wisest fool: "He or she must be fundamentally an idiot, but a shrewd or cunning one". I have somebody in mind. Guess who.
