Aspiring comedians, consider yourselves warned: Make fun of Bruce Jenner at your own peril. As both Jimmy Fallon and Joel McHale have learned the hard way, the Olympic decathlete and Kardashian stepdad doesn't take too kindly to cracks about his frighteningly taut visage. The subject came up Thursday on “Late Night,” when McHale was discussing a run-in with Kris Jenner earlier in the day backstage at “The View.” She scolded him for running in fear from her family, presumably to avoid awkward encounters with the very people he ridicules so often on “The Soup.” But the “Community” star stuck up for himself, claiming that he's “deathly afraid” of Bruce Jenner for a number of reasons.

We were closing in on the capture of Saddam Hussein. But - and the nation should be thankful - this wasn't my domain. President George W. Bush had another reason for calling for me now. Barney Cam. How it happened Whenever I'm asked to speak about my tenure in the White House, the conversation always shifts to Barney, the Scottish terrier whom the president regarded as the son he never had. After Barney died Friday at age 12, I found myself thinking about how he became an Internet sensation.

MIDLAND CITY, Ala. - Midland City is a place where things have always gone more or less according to plan. There was that time the Beck house burned down, but even then two Bibles and a picture of Christ remained untouched. So the current crisis - a little boy kidnapped and held prisoner underground for days - has left people here struggling to find a purpose behind it. They have found none on their televisions or in local newspapers, because authorities have released little information.
