A few years ago I bought a cookbook titled "Kill It and Grill It" for my boyfriend, a Yale grad who hunted and fished. Admittedly, I offered the gift ironically. I'd been drawn to it by its cover photo of '70s rocker Ted Nugent and his wife, Shemane, each clad in a denim vest and clutching a rifle and knife, respectively. As a native of rural Michigan, I saw the image as both funny and dismaying. They kind of look like families I grew up with, I thought. But who buys a cookbook with a gun on it?

WASHINGTON - Seats at President Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night will be filled with the legislative priorities of a bitterly divided Congress. Efforts to humanize intensifying national policy battles will bring some strange bedfellows to the address, where a survivor of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre will find herself in the same audience as Ted Nugent, a rocker turned gun rights activist who was the subject of a Secret Service investigation last year after making controversial remarks about Obama.

Record labels, rock stars and high-tech entrepreneurs are slated to testify Tuesday at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on online entertainment and copyright law. Supporters of Napster Inc., the embattled song-swapping service, are expected to pack the hearing room to hear Chief Executive Hank Barry appeal for a legislative life preserver. But he'll be opposed by most of the other members of the panel, including rocker/bow hunter Ted Nugent and EMI Records Chairman Ken Berry.

GREAT to read Paul Cullum in The Times. Re "Casting God," it's too bad Cullum didn't give a nod to local go-to Jesus, actor Emmy Collins. Collins with his John Lennon-meets-Jesus-cum-Ted Nugent looks has gobbled up scenery as Jesus in multiple "Jimmy Kimmel Live" cold openings; "Mind of Mencia"; "The Kvetchin' of the Christ," a Passion parody that ran on IFilm.com for a year; and "Gay Jesus" in the crazy film, "God Made Man," as well as numerous History Channel and TBN Christ docudramas.
