Well, if you answer yes to any of these questions, you've been had -- Do all your ring tones involve the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Are the only cities not covered Sodom and Gomorrah? Do they offer an app called "Jesus Waiting?"
PRAISE ALLAH -- Now that Al-Jarzeera has spent $2 billion to acquire Current TV, you can expect a definite shift in programming toward Middle Eastern themes and attitudes. For instance, their Monday night lineup features "The Tonight Show Starring Jay bin Leno," "Disgruntled Housewives of Kabul" and "Two and a Half Menachim Begins."

UP UP AND AWAY -- Under contract to the Pentagon and NASA, Montebello, CA based Worldwide Aeros has completed construction on a 17-story tall blimp like airship. The 36,000 pound dirigible is constructed of aluminum and carbon fiber and can lift fifty tons of military cargo and equipment. The helium-filled behemoth will be christened in March as the "Limbaugh I."
