The Internal Revenue Service has apologized for spending about $60,000 on a training video that parodied the television show, “Star Trek.” In a six-minute video that is attracting wide attention on the Internet, IRS workers portrayed characters from the popular television series and vowed “to boldly go where no governmental employee has gone before.” Congress was not amused, calling the video a waste of taxpayer money. The IRS has acknowledged it was a mistake for employees to make the video.

Parents are not out to get their children hurt when they grab for the video camera; things just happen, and that's what makes the pratfalls and comedy of errors so amusing. The child would have hit his head or run into the wall regardless of whether there was a video camera running. I feel censorship is being proposed when Rosenberg suggests that the show no longer accept videos containing children. Please, can we enjoy this little show without feeling guilty or taking it too seriously?

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.

Mark O'Mara, Zimmerman's attorney, told the Orlando Sentinel that 67 compact discs of evidence had been turned over by prosecutors last week.

You can see it all unfold in the video above.
