I just read this in a celebrity rag: “Avicii, 25 things you don’t know about me!”
Better make that 26 things, kids, because first I have to find out “who in hell is Avicii?”

Speaking of celebrities: “Keeping mum on the big B — baby!”

We have a first class, professional “Asshole of the Day” for ya folks!
Alan Beck!
asshole trophyA former California Little League coach is backpedaling after suing one of his players for more than half a million dollars. Alan Beck’s suit claims that the 14-year-old “carelessly threw his helmet” while rounding the bases after a walk-off hit in March, KCRA reports. Beck says the helmet hit him, and caused him to tear his Achilles tendon, though he didn’t have surgery until December. Now, he’s seeking more than $100,000 for medical expenses, and $500,000 for pain and suffering. “At first, I thought it was a joke,” says the boy’s father. He says he lacks homeowner’s insurance, and can’t afford to fight the suit. “I’ve already spent over $4,000 and we haven’t even been in a courtroom yet.”

asshole trophyA U.S. federal appeals court on Friday upheld a judge’s ruling granting a taxpayer-funded sex change operation for a transgender inmate serving a life sentence for a murder conviction, saying receiving medically necessary treatment is a constitutional right that must be protected “even if that treatment strikes some as odd or unorthodox.”
U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf ruled in 2012 that the state Department of Correction must provide sex reassignment surgery for Michelle Kosilek, who was born Robert Kosilek and is serving a life sentence for killing of his wife in 1990.

It’s with a heavy heart that we announce Ruth Robinson Duccini, the last of the original female Munchkins from the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, has died.

She was 95.
With her death, only one actor who played one of the original 124 Munchkins in the movie remains alive.
obit-ruth-robinson-ducciniDuccini died of natural causes in Solari Hospice Care Center in Las Vegas on Thursday.
Her death was confirmed by Stephen Cox, author of The Munchkins of Oz. He says he learned of it from Duccini’s son.
Duccini, born in Rush City, Minn., travelled to California with a troupe little people, and was cast in the MGM fantasy movie starring Judy Garland. Duccini was 4 feet tall.
Cox provided a recent statement made by Duccini about her time on the movie set.
“It was long hours and heavy costumes. We didn’t have much time for ourselves. It was all new to me then, and I loved being a part of what is now a classic,” she said.
Duccini met her husband while working at MGM, and the two had a son and daughter.

(Unfortunately, none of the Munchkins made it big after “The Wizard of Oz!” They were mostly overlooked for parts!)
