Here's a round-up of this week in Air America Radio news:
* Jerry Springer will be coming back to Air America with a floating, 3 minute segment entitled "Jerry's Progressive Thoughts" in which he'll offer brief commentaries on the news of the day and the week. He is no longer on Dancing with the Stars. To the best of our knowledge, he is not under indictment or running for office anywhere at the present time.
* Al Franken's fundraiser in East Saskawatchaholee Lake, Minnesota was a rousing success, with visits from Michael Moore, Bernie Sanders, and Bob Avakian. Moore presented Franken with a total of $50,000 raised from various Hollywood celebrities like Barbra Streisand, Martin Sheen, and Laurie David.
* Janeane Garofalo - who disappeared from public view after Ratatouille flopped - has been selected for a supporting role in the adolescent sex romp "Double Dumplin's". It will be directed by Delbert Simkin, formerly 2nd unit director on some of Jim Varney's movies. Gilbert Gottfried and Paulie Shore make cameo appearances, and Jim Axelrod of CBS News will play himself. For her role, Garofalo will be "re-augmented"; fans may remember that, in an early and brilliant career move she had herself "reduced". Production will begin in September, with the movie available as early as November in either DVD format or as a direct web download.
* Mike Malloy has released a statement apologizing for his earlier comments and emphasizing that he was only joking about taking hostages.
Like bits of string, we will collect this week's news and have them for you next week in this same digest format.
