Potter Book Record
8.3 million copies of the final Harry Potter book were sold in the first 24 hours after its release this weekend... an amazing feat since there's never more than one register open at Barnes and Noble.

Selig Won't Celebrate
Even if he is present when Barry Bonds breaks the home run record, Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig says he will not celebrate the accomplishment. But that's only because jumping up and down really ruins his hairpiece.

Tammy Faye Dies
Tammy Faye Messner died Saturday just one day after doing an interview with Larry King. Usually, the only people who die are the ones who've just watched Larry King.

Vick Protests
Dozens protesters marched outside Atlanta Falcons headquarters Monday afternoon demanding the team release Michael Vick. Police assumed the protesters were animal rights activists, but when they became violent it was obvious they were actually just Eagles' fans.

Sleep Patterns
Doctros say that parents should recognize and respect their baby's natural rhythms and establish good bedtime habits early on. So I guess taking my 2-year-old to the midnight Rocky Horror Picture Show was a bad idea?

Brown to CNN
CNN hired anchor Campbell Brown of NBC News, one day after she announced she was leaving Weekend Today. By hiring Brown, CNN proves its continuing commitment to lighten the workload at the Manhattan unemployment office.

YouTube Debate
CNN is hosting tonight's Democratic presidential debate in South Carolina, featuring questions submitted by ordinary Americans via YouTube. Usually, CNN only gets its on-air material from people fired by NBC.

Many people are questioning the wisdom of using YouTube to generate all the questions in a presidential debate. But it's not any dumber than hosting an even in South Carolina in July.
