- Another sign of the apocalypse: Four workers at a Utah Wal Mart were fired recently for tackling and disarming a gunman. Wal Mart policy requires workers to withdraw if a suspected shoplifter pulls a gun. But, the four said they had no choice when the gunman put his weapon in one worker's back.

- While her public persona may give the impression that she's a ditz, Jessica Simpson is succeeding where other stars have failed. Simpson's fashion line is on track to make $1 billion in sales this year, according to New York magazine.

- A University of Louisville cheerleader was assessed a technical foul in today's game against Pitt when he grabbed the ball and threw it in the air, thinking that the game had ended. There was still time left on the clock and Pittsburgh got the ball back but Louisville held on for the overtime victory.

Pitino's response would likely have been less muted had the technical foul cost the Cardinals the upset win over the #6 Panthers.
