  • Malaysia gags Lady Gaga

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Malaysian radio stations worry some lyrics in Lady Gaga’s gay anthem “Born This Way” are on the wrong track, baby.
    Broadcasters in this Muslim-majority nation have refused to play lines in the hit song that encourage public acceptance of gays, claiming Thursday they are being cautious because the government forbids offensive content.
    Malaysians who tune in to popular stations hear edited versions of “Born This Way” that use indecipherable garble to replace the lyrics: “No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, I’m on the right track, baby.”

  • Review: 'Moonlight and Magnolias' glows

    Being trapped in a room with a boss and co-worker probably isn’t how most people want to spend a day, never mind five days, especially when there’s only peanuts and bananas for subsistence, but that’s exactly how Victor Fleming, Ben Hecht and David O. Selznick spent a week while working on the screenplay for “Gone With the Wind.”
    Los Alamos Little Theater’s latest production, “Moonlight and Magnolias,” by Ron Hutchinson, chronicles the trio’s journey to write what would become a very well known film.

  • Aflac dumps duck voice actor for tasteless tweets

    COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) — Aflac Inc. said Monday it has fired Gilbert Gottfried, the abrasive voice of the insurer's quacking duck in the U.S., after the comedian posted a string of mocking jokes about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan on Twitter over the weekend.

    The tasteless tweets are particularly problematic for Aflac because it does 75 percent of its business in Japan. One in four homes in Japan buys health insurance from Aflac. The insurer's CEO, Daniel Amos, flew to Japan on Sunday to show support for the company's employees and agents.
