COMMENTARY

Keith Olbermann rounds up tabloid and entertainment news every night on “Keeping Tabs.” On Monday, Feb. 5 he said this:

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has made his first public comments since it was revealed that he is revealed in the upcoming London stage production of "Equus."  Radcliffe tells the "Evening Standard," "We’ve done the scene a couple of times in rehearsal.  I had no particular qualms.  There is nothing that would stop me getting my (INAUDIBLE) if that is what the work demands."

And there you have, the mark of every fine actor, nothing will stop them getting their kid off.  As for the scene where Radcliffe has to not have sexual relations with that horse, we say, whoa Nelly.

Breaking news out of California this hour.  San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom is seeking counseling for alcohol abuse.  It worked for Lindsay Lohan.  Mayor Newsom informed his department heads of his treatment this afternoon.  He will not be entering a residential rehab program, however, so will not be stepping down as mayor, even temporarily. 

This follows last week’s revelations that Newsom had an affair with an office employee who was also the wife of one of his political aides, now former political aide.  A spokesman for the mayor says that he is not blaming alcohol for his bad behavior.  The mayor simply understands that he has a problem or two. 

In another sign that everything has changed in this post light bright world, Turner Broadcasting has reached a deal to put last week’s terror threat in Boston behind us all.  A variety of Boston city agencies will get two million dollars from the companies responsible for distributing dozens of blinking promotional signs for the upcoming Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie.  I just like to say it. 

The two million dollars about will go to reimburse the city for any costs incurred during last week’s scare, as well as fund a range of homeland security defensive measures, such as Mr. Potato Head facial recognition software, a warrantless spirographing, to protect us from threats, such as weaponized play dough, which can be easily synthesized in any Easy Bake Even.  It’s really frightening.
