It seems that the state of South Dakota has a beef with Joan Jett. Or a lack of beef, more accurately. Jett, who spent her formative years in Rockville , is a vegetarian and an animal rights activist. She's so committed to animal rights that she's about to appear on some PETA-themed United States Postal Service  stamps.  And that means the South Dakota Cattlemen's Association has a problem with Jett appearing on the state's float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City , according to CNN .  "Many livestock producers expressed concern about whether Joan Jett was an appropriate representative for an agriculturally oriented state like South Dakota," association executive director Jodie Anderson told CNN. So Joan Jett & the Blackhearts were moved off of South Dakota, to another, unspecified state.  "I've decided to switch from South Dakota to another float because people's political agendas were getting in the way of what should be a purely entertainment driven event," Jett said in a statement, according to CNN .  "I will remain focused on entertaining the millions of people watching, who will be celebrating a great American tradition," she said.

Last night, 10 ladies sang for their lives and a chance to secure one of the five spots in their final sudden death round. As we get closer to the bigger stage and more viewers, where our votes count, one would think that the girls would come with their big guns. I'm still feeling like perhaps some of the better talent are on the cutting room floor back in Hollywood. The show kicked off with the "raw talent" of Melinda, who sang a song that Angela did better earlier in the season.

Well, now the 54-year-old rocker who grew up in Rockville - yes, very appropriate - wanted this generation of Orioles to know how much she's enjoying their resurgence.

Steve Ruiz recalls it clearly, shopping in a sporting goods store with his son, Jett, and another 13-year-old who played on Jett's baseball team. Jett rushed down the aisles, handling the bats and gloves. But his friend hung back. Ruiz approached the youngster. "Get whatever you need, Adam," Ruiz said. "Really?" Adam Jones' eyes grew wide. His choices that day were practical ones - a jockstrap and cup. Clutching his purchases, Jones turned to his benefactor. "I'm gonna pay you back, Mr. Ruiz," he said.
