Week In Review - March 17, 2012

This was a mammoth news week for those who enjoy meddling in the sex lives of others. Anti-gay, anti-contraception candidate Rick Santorum won the South but continues to lose the war. Anti-woman, pro-slut radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh gained support and possible ad revenue from the see-you-all-in-Hell group at Westboro Baptist. Meanwhile, Pat Robertson weighed in on oral sex, and webcam voyeur Dharun Ravi faces prison time or deportation as a result of his conviction.

Can't we all just get along (without worrying about who everyone else is fucking)?

With only one gratuitous "F" word in this post, the MPAA would likely let me skate by with a PG-13 rating, which is better than the documentary film Bully fared. This important new movie directed by Lee Hirsch includes half a dozen schoolyard F-bombs and consequently received an unfortunate "R" rating, making it harder for the kids who should see this movie to have access to it. 

Fans of complex and layered television horse racing dramas, of which there are apparently only a few, had a tough week - as HBO canceled Luck, after killing one horse too many on the set.

March Madness is in full swing, not only in NCAA basketball, but also in the very unique Tournament of Books competition. And of course, if it's March, it's also time for green beer, corned beef and cabbage, and Danny Boy (Muppet-style).

As always, thanks for reading!
