Just to prove my point this has been a weird week...

  • Paris Hilton sues Hallmark over a "That's hot!" card.
    The Smoking Gun.
  • Bisexual dating show coming to MTV. ABC 13
  • Hemlines drop, so do the markets. Coincidence? LAO's
    Mark Lacter explains.

  • Eek: TMZ TV. AP

  • San Diego County Diocese settles with abuse victims for $198 million. (Will it take a page out of the LA Archdiocese's fund raising playbook?) NBC

Not so weird and maybe even fun:

  • Our own Erika Schickel does a wee bit of Huffington Post-ing. She's got details.

  • Heal the Bay benefit tonight at the Malibu Inn with John Doe.
  • LA County Fair kicks off today. LAist.
  • Pricey pop-art sushi with a priceless high-rise view.
    Jonathan Gold in LA Weekly.
  • Long Beach Art Walk. OC Weekly.
