It's difficult to wipe the grin from my own face when Ted Williams lights up. His story is a testament to hope, perseverance and God's grace despite his many flaws, and yet it's his sincerity that makes me want to hug him. Recently hired for voice work by MSNBC, among others, I could not be happier for "golden pipes." Let's hope he stays on the straight and narrow.
Note: I'm emotionally invested. God help me if this proves an elaborate hoax.
Nearly 8.5 million people -- practically Super Bowl numbers for a cable network -- tuned in to MTV last Thursday for the debut of Jersey Shore's third season, and I'm proud to say that I avoided the GTL fever this time around. Perhaps most notable is Deena (far right), the new girl who describes herself as "class in a glass and party in a body," presumably with a heavy northern accent that omits the letter r. I pray for the end of this phenomenon.
