I take it all back, Hollywood!

I will never poke fun at Hollywood baby names again.

Way to make a birthday cake a hate crime, ordinary citizens!

A supermarket is defending itself for refusing to a write out 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell's name on his birthday cake.... The Campbells ultimately got their cake decorated at a Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania, Deborah Campbell said Tuesday.... Heath Campbell said he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and because "no one else in the world would have that name."

Yes, he just "liked" the name. Which is why they named the poor kid's sister, "JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell"

And now go peruse the Southern Poverty Law Center's website to reboot the world's karma.

You call it: Miserable or miscast?

George Clooney in Michael Clayton: an overhyped actor who seems to be undergoing a messy divorce from nuance on-screen OR a sparkling comedic actor in the wrong role? Discuss.

(Not up for discussion in any way -- Tilda Swinton or Tom Wilkinson, who wipe the floor with any weak-sauce thespian thrown mercilessly into a scene with them.)
