Welcome back. What the hell happened to the temperature? Suddenly, it's like mid-late March or something. What's the plan for the day? Dad Clutter is coming in a bit, so BDH, Little Buddha and I have to finish cleaning up around here. However, first grab yourself a medium DD, and let's clear out a little Saturday Clutter.
Geraldo Rivera (who is apparently still on television), applied a rape defense-like judgment to the Trayvon Martin case, saying Martin was to blame for getting killed because he was wearing a hoodie. I'm pretty sure George Zimmerman and his gun are at fault here, Geraldo. Go back into the vault you crawled out of.
The Miami Heat wore hoodies before their game last night, in honor of Martin, and amazingly, they're all still alive, Geraldo.

Will Komen Foundation CEO Nancy Brinker resign after a second high-profile staff member announced she's leaving, following the organization's recent controversy with Planned Parenthood?
Facebook will always have to deal with privacy concerns, because one of the fundamental aspects of its business is convincing their users to share as much information as possible. They're never going to be privacy leaders, because that goes against their very business model.
Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), is writing a bill to ban potential employers from requiring job candidates to turn over their social media usernames and passwords as part of the hiring process.
My calendar says Spring just started, but Sam Adams has already decided it's time to put out the Summer Ale. I'm torn here. On the one hand, this is my favorite beer, so I should be thrilled that it's out, but going by this timetable, doesn't that mean that Octoberfest (my least favorite) should be out in June?

It's starting to sound like Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine would rather put Daniel Bard back in the bullpen. That would be fine with me, because this experiment never really seemed to make much sense in the first place.
Is pitcher Clay Buchholz ready to be a leader on the mound for an entire season this year? The Red Sox are counting on the answer being "yes."
Red Sox reliever Bobby Jenks is a complete mess. Jenks was arrested yesterday on five charges, four of which were DUI-related. Apparently he hit two cars in a strip bar's parking lot, and then fled the accident, and was swerving all over the road when he was pulled over. Jenks told the cops when he was arrested that he'd taken too many muscle relaxants. Somewhere, his former manager Ozzie Guillen is laughing his head off. I don't care if Jenks ever pitches for the Sox again (and my guess is that he won't), but I hope he's able to get his life together.
Finally, the news Red Sox fans have been waiting all winter for: New reporter Jenny Dell makes her on-camera NESN debut today. No word yet on whether she'll have to eat the worst food from every ballpark yet.
New York Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain severely dislocated his ankle in a fluke accident at home yesterday. I first heard about this on TV, and they were saying there were reports that it was almost a life-threatening accident due to the blood loss, but maybe that was just hype. In any case, it sounds like Chamberlain is almost definitely out for the year, and that his career could be in jeopardy.
Good news for you Hangover fans.: There will be a third/final installment of the film series next year. I wonder where they'll get lost this time.
What happens when Poison meets KISS, Pantera, Van Halen and Aerosmith? I guess we'll find out when Bret Michaels releases his next solo album.
Doctor Who head honcho Steven Moffat reveals when companion Karen Gillan will leave the show this year, and it doesn't sound like it's going to be a happy departure. Probably shouldn't obsess about it now since the new season won't begin for at least another...7 months. Okay, now I'm depressed.
Apparently Mel Gibson's years of domestic violence charges and anti-Semitic rants have finally taken their toll on his career, as he can't even get his latest movie released in the theaters. That's one helluva fall from the days when it seemed like each of his pictures grossed about $1 billion. I wonder how many people are going ot watch this on DirectTV:
Okay kids, that's going to do it for now. We need to get back to cleaning up Clutter Headquarters. I've been debating for at least an hour now whether to post this final clip, but I think I'm going to have to do it and just hope that you'll all forgive me. I don't know what year this is, but Bret Michaels and Miley Cyrus apparently teamed up at some point, and the results were...well...check out their duet on "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" for today's, "Song of the Day," and see for yourself:
Oh, that was a mistake.
Well, thanks for stopping by, kids. I hope you had as much fun as we did, and that you'll come back again for more fun soon. I promise to find a better song if you do. Until next time, be good. That's the Clutter, and we are outta here.
