I see that Republican candidate Michele Bachmann is now "guaranteeing" gas will be $2 a gallon if she becomes president. Wow! As anyone familiar with the free market knows, there is only one way to guarantee that gas is going to be at the price set by a politician - price controls. Even the "lefty" President Obama hasn't suggested that. That puts Michele Bachmann to the left of Obama and the Democrats in Congress, even that lefty Bernie Sanders fromVermont. So in one day, Michele Bachmann has gone from right-wing darling to the very thing she claims to hate: a socialist!

Sunny Sighed remembers her first exposure to modern burlesque very well. She loved it, but never dreamed she'd soon be a part of it. Stripping off her clothes in front of an audience - well, even for a performer trained in acting, singing and dancing, that seemed a bit much. "I at first could not imagine being able to do it myself," she says of the night about eight years ago when she first saw local legends Trixie Little and the Evil Hate Monkey (real names: Beatrix Burneston and Adam Krandle)

The Queen tells Alice, "Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. " If the Queen were on the Internet, she could discover six asinine things before the coffee has begun to cool in the cup. I offer as a specimen the remarks on copy editing by one Abraham Hyatt, reported by Jim Romenesko : "I strongly believe that online audiences don't notice the majority of the work a copyeditor does. Readers see misspellings and blatant errors in grammar.

They were the champions, dominating airwaves in the '70s and '80s with their distinctive brand of pomp and romp. And now they're back, making the same bold promise: "We Will Rock You. " That's the title of a jukebox musical filled with about two dozen songs by the British band Queen. Those songs are applied to a sci-fi scenario in the show, which opened in London's West End in 2002 to reviews that were slightly to the right of scathing. But those notices were not enough to make another one bite the dust.

"I Am Divine" is a welcome reminder that Baltimore's favorite-son drag queen did more than eat dog poop at the end of "Pink Flamingos. " Much more. He was, in fact, a genuine force of nature, an irrepressible and undefinable spirit who wanted two things: to be loved, and to be famous. To that end, he adopted the almost-literally larger-than-life personality of a 300-pound drag queen and found success in film, on stage and in concert. His singular accomplishments - there almost certainly will never be another Divine - emerge as a testament as much to his drive as his talent, both of which are paid their due by filmmaker Jeffrey Schwarz.

After a seven-year fling in Las Vegas, the Miss America Pageant is returning in a week to its birthplace, Atlantic City, N.J. The pageant began in 1921 as a beachfront bathing-suit contest between beauty competition winners from eight Northeastern cities. At that time, Atlantic City was a fashionable oceanfront resort with brilliant beaches, grandiose hotels, charming seaside shops and a stylish summertime following. Droves of visitors generated success for the region until economic upheavals beginning in the1960s launched the shore town into a depression that lasted decades.
