Here we are again. Friday. Ah. This week, MTV ruined Skins, the USDA killed some birds, Rep. Giffords moved from a hospital to a rehabilitation facility, American Idol returned in a small yet still large way, and many other possibly more important things whose significance is subjective anyway, so what’s the point in even mentioning them.

We’ll see, we’ll see.
