Two pieces of sad news...

Hey guys...I have two pieces of news that are a little bit on the sad side, so here are the headlines...

- Morgan Freeman is currently in serious condition after he was involved in a car crash in Mississippi last night...CNN has the story...

CNN affilliate WMC of Memphis reported that he was in a car accident in Tallahatchie County, Mississippi, about 100 miles south of Memphis, late Sunday.

According to The Associated Press, Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Ben Williams said Freeman was driving a 1997 Nissan Maxima belonging to Demaris Meyer of Memphis when the car left a rural highway and flipped several times shortly before midnight Sunday.

“There’s no indication that either alcohol or drugs were involved,” Williams said, according to the AP. Both Freeman and Meyer were wearing seat belts, Williams reported. The woman’s condition was not immediately available.

“They had to use the jaws of life to extract him from the vehicle,” Clay McFerrin, editor of Sun Sentinel in Charleston, Mississippi, told the AP. “He was lucid, conscious. He was talking, joking with some of the rescue workers at one point.”

It looks as though he will pull through, and lets hope he has a full and speedy recovery!

- The last piece of news that is noteworthy is that Christina Applegate, probably most famous for playing the sex pot daughter in Married With Children, but many people will remember her as the love interest to Will Ferrell in Anchorman, has been diagnosed with Breast Cancer. The cancer was detected early, so there should be no life threatening complications.

Now, that's all I have for news today, so come back tomorrow for some news and a top ten or some DVD recommendations...

Go see something good...
