Playin' Safe

I just don't get it. Apparently, Mukono district has more resources than they know what to do with, so they are coming up with bull-shit tasks for the criminal investigation chief to do to keep him occupied. A school teacher goes to a "beauty contest" that turns into something similar to burlesque theater... So? He's photographed "standing next to a scantily-dressed" girl... And? "His fingers were close to the girl’s groin..." Your point is?

The RDC of Mukono asserts that the teacher "dented the district’s image." Did he? Did he dent the district's image? It is also said that he sent a wrong message to his pupils. Were they in the audience to see him do this? Should they have been? Who was responsible for them?

Can't a man live a private life? If anything, I think he was sending a positive message of safe sex. Come on. In this time of HIV and other STDs, isn't it safer to have a man just dancing with a woman than having unprotected sex with her?

In other, more entertaining news:

Variety.com is reporting that Kristen Bell will be joining Heroes during Season 2: NBC is adding former "Veronica Mars" star Kristen Bell to the cast of "Heroes." Peacock has snagged Bell for a key multiepisode arc of its sophomore sensation. Casting is a major coup for NBC since Bell -- who plays the title character in Judd Apatow's upcoming "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" -- was reportedly being sought for several TV gigs, including a part on ABC's "Lost." Bell will make her first "Heroes" appearance in October. She'll play Elle, a character described as a sexy, mysterious young lady who has ties to the supposed death of Peter, H.R.G.'s past and the future of Claire. Elle will kick off her arc by committing a serious crime, though it's unclear whether she's good or bad. "This was not easy to pull off," said "Heroes" creator-exec producer Tim Kring. "But since we're an ensemble show, with many arcs playing out through the year, we found a way to jump into a small window in (Bell's) schedule." Universal Media Studios prexy Katherine Pope also hinted that landing Bell wasn't easy, noting that "many studios (were) chasing her in both film and TV" and that she was happy that Bell "chose to star in our show." In addition to her gig in the Apatow pic, Bell co-stars in the Weinstein Co.'s upcoming "Fanboys" and supplies one of the voices in the 2008 animated Fox feature "Sheepish." She also has another regular role on a network skein, voicing the narrator in CW's new drama "Gossip Girl."

How excited am I? I LOVE Kristen Bell. How many times do I make Veronica Mars references per week? How many people have I trapped and persuaded to watch Reefer Madness. OMG: and Heroes is my new favorite show. What a perfect marriage!!! Apparently, Ms. B is quite hot these days in Hollywood, with both film and television offers coming at her left and right. She's also great on stage, able to sing and dance.

I'm really excited about Season 2 of Heroes!!!

Veronica Mars

is a marshmallow.
