COMMENTARY

Keith Olbermann rounds up tabloid and entertainment news every night on “Keeping Tabs.” On Tuesday, Oct. 31 he had this to say:

Come on down
After half a century in television, more than three decades of that with the “Price is Right,” Bob Barker has announced his retirement.  He will retire in June of next year.  After 35 years of hosting the “Price is Right,” 50 years on TV, “I will be 83 years old on December 12,” he said, “and I've decided to retire while I am still young.” 

Baker, who began his TV career, obviously, in 1956 hosting “Truth or Consequences” said he had been considering retirement for at least a decade, but was having too much fun and of course he was having too much trouble guessing the exact number. 

Madonna's baby bling
And Madonna, again with the religious iconography, but this time it's not crosses and her hanging on them, but rather her dressing up the boy she's adopting from Malawi with Kabbalah bling. 

Little David Banda has been wearing a red string bracelet associated with the religion, confirmed, this is, by Madonna's representative, Liz Rosenberg, and MSNBC.com's Jeanette Walls , citing Kabbalah literature, says that the bracelet deflects “the unfriendly stare and unkind glances we sometimes get from people around us.” 

Not that Madonna and her posse have ever been the subject of that sort of thing.
