REALITY TV LENDS A HAND TO THE NEEDY

Even the government isn’t beyond reality TV as first lady Laura Bush made her debut on an episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Touring the Mississippi disaster areas, the first lady helped to hand out donated items to people in Biloxi. Instead of remodeling a home this week, the home show handed out much needed items to people left stranded from Hurricane Katrina.

PAY TO BE A CHARACTER

The money from the auction goes to the First Amendment Project, a non-profit organization devoted to protecting freedom of information. It is said that out of the bidders, $125,000 was spent to get one name into Stephen King’s new work, Cell.
