i read about the jeremy thing and that's a shame. interesting but a shame. i think that's a lesson to everyone about how you have to be careful about what you eat i hope that they solve the case about mark's brother - that's an awful thing to have happened and i hope that they get closure. i read about jodie yesterday - and i would hate to hear that she's relapsing. she's come such a long way from her addiction and this would not be a good thing for her to get back into any of it, seeing as how she has a child that she's caring for well..i hope that bristol is doing ok. i wonder if the news of her boyfriend's mom will put her in to labor early? mindy is just having a bad year huh? i hope that she gets the help that she needs YAY for ed - i think that it's a shame about what happened to him, and i hope that things start to pick up for him

If I could afford to, I would totally eat sushi for every meal, mercury poisoning be damned.

about the mercury... i think the article stated that piven was eating sushi twice a day. excess is never good! balance, people, balance... ;)

I was thinking the same thing, jaan_black. And also how appropriate it is for a cokehead to appear in a David Mamet play, since Mamet's characters never shut up.

cadi con carne a lot of people I've known eat tuna fish almost daily because it's "healthier", so i wouldn't be surprised if that's how he got it. I do hope he gets well soon.

A high mercury count? Oh dear...that's tough to do. Lots of the wrong kinds of fish, and I do mean LOTS!

I feel bad for Jodie Sweetin's baby, but why are we supposed to care about Sweetin now in the first place? Does she have a movie coming out or something? I feel like she just popped out of nowhere for no good reason.

Get well sooner than soon, Jeremy. You're one of my favorite actors; you rock!
