Please, can we enjoy this little show without feeling guilty or taking it too seriously?

"How far -- how far away you think we are?" a man asked. Before anyone could answer, a large explosion ripped through the air, sending a response to the onlookers scurrying away: Too close. The train explosion could be felt for miles in Rosedale, a few miles east of downtown Baltimore, where residents could see a towering black column of smoke rising into the air after the blast.

A  UC Irvine  fraternity has volunteered to suspend itself after it was blasted for a member-produced video that featured a student in blackface. Lambda Theta Delta announced Wednesday that it would cancel all major events and stop operating as a UCI-sanctioned organization until fall 2014. "This decision is mainly due to the abhorrent, insensitive and highly offensive 'blackface' video created by our members that has been circulated widely on the Internet," members of the Asian fraternity said in a  statement on their Facebook page . Lambda Theta Delta  came under fire  toward the end of April for the video on its YouTube page that showed four of its members lip-syncing to the Justin Timberlake/ Jay-Z  song "Suit and Tie. " The student playing Jay-Z wore blackface in the video.
