Part of my ritualistic Monday night House-viewing is turning on the TV and setting it to FOX, just to make sure I don’t miss a second of brilliance. This, of course, has its downsides, as I start cooking for House night around 7 (yes, an hour early), and FOX airs plenty of garbage before House comes on. The particular garbage I’m referring to in this instance happens to be The Insider.

Needless to say, my attention was grabbed away from the task at hand to see what these nitwits could possibly have to say on the matter shy of “Oh, at least they were dressed nice but that was wrong.” Sure enough, they ended up debating whether or not the Salahis should be thrown in jail for this. Oh, but it gets better. Read the rest of this entry »
