The NFL announced it will order players to take blood tests to detect Human Growth Hormone. The Player's Union won't comply. NFL players believe that a blood test is a private and confidential procedure that is strictly between you and the murder detective.

Facebook shares soared thirty percent Friday, increasing Mark Zuckerberg's wealth by four billion dollars. It was remarkably lucky timing. Anthony Weiner showed people who think they don't want to be on Facebook what people actually do on Facebook.

Prince Harry told a charity in London Thursday that he's looking forward to helping to raise Prince George and making sure the baby has fun. He's already a big influence. The baby's only eight days old and already he's grasping at breasts and drinking too much.

San Diego mayor Rob Filner apologized to all the women he's harassed. He said he can't blame it on being from the previous generation. The previous generation had the decency and manners to offer women a line of coke before inappropriately touching them.
