TURNING the hit MTV series "Jackass" into a feature-length film sent star Johnny Knoxville to the emergency room only three, maybe four times; he can't really recall. One stunt gone awry left him in an overturned vehicle with a bloody gash on his head, footage of which is shown in the film with an off-screen voice yelling, "Don't move him!" "It's healed, I think," Knoxville says over lunch at a West Hollywood dive. "Not that many stitches. Seven or eight."

A teenager trying to imitate a stunt from "Jackass: The Movie" was killed after he tried to hold onto a moving pickup truck and was instead thrown from the vehicle, Albuquerque police said. Police said Stephen Paul Rauen, 15, was killed after jumping on the hood of a truck driven by a friend. He was then thrown to the ground when the driver slammed on the brakes, dragging Stephen under the vehicle. A decision has not yet been made on whether to charge the 17-year-old driver, officials said.

REGARDING the review of "Jackass: Number Two," by Jessica Reaves of the Chicago Tribune ["What Comes After Stupid? Just Gross," Sept. 22]: It bothers me no end to read reviews from one of your sister publications in my hometown newspaper. If I wanted a Chicagoan's perspective, I'd go to the newsstand and pick up a Chi-town rag and read that. That said, what really bothers me was the review itself, apparently written by some queasy intern who was so repulsed by the movie that she had to mention not once but twice how it made her sick to her stomach.

Bruce Springsteen eloquently eulogized his friend of more than four decades and E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons Tuesday at a private funeral at a small church in Palm Beach, Fla. The roughly two-hour service for the 69-year-old Clemons, known as the Big Man and Springsteen's main foil onstage over their long careers, was at the Royal Poinciana Chapel on this manicured island of the rich and famous. Faint strains of music could be heard outside the small gray church. Springsteen, among those delivering eulogies, spoke of his long kinship with Clemons, according to those leaving the church.

It looks to be a tight race for the top box-office spot this weekend between a new franchise aimed at older audiences and an older series aimed at young ones. People in the movie industry who have seen pre-release polling say "Jackass 3-D," the third film in the 8-year-old comedy franchise, has an edge over the Bruce Willis action flick "Red," but only a small one. Both pictures are expected to have solid debuts, with "Red" taking in about $25 million and "Jackass" headed for around $30 million.

Quite honestly, I don't know what to say about "Jackass: Number Two." What is there to say, after all, about a 95-minute foray into feces, intestinal gas, horse semen and a beer funnel inserted into a body cavity that's quite obviously not someone's mouth? Johnny Knoxville is rejoined by his usual band of thick-skulled morons, including Bam Margera, whose poor parents seem to have been sucked (again) into this nightmare, Steve-O and Dave England.

"So a comedian walks into a library and decides to work there …" That's not my line. It's from Meredith Myers, the self-described Standup Librarian who just had something very unfunny happen to her. She got fired from a West Hollywood library job that she loved. But let's back up, all the way to Florida, where Myers discovered as a child that a library is a place to think, dream and figure things out. As an adult, she grabbed books on the PR business, leading to a 10-year career as a publicist.
