WMC-TV in Memphis reports that Dyer County High School senior Kendra Turner was suspended for saying “Bless you” after a classmate sneezed. It's one of a number of phrases that “class rules” prohibit. We suggest she break out singing “God Bless America” as an ornery alternative. ... National Review reports that country/pop singer Taylor Swift is being taken to task for her new music video, “Shake it Off.” Some say her use of primarily black dancers to perform hip-hop moves is racial stereotyping.

Perennially troubled actress Lindsay Lohan, all of 28 years old, says she will write a three-part memoir. Good grief. We can think of no better example of the narcissism of the age. ...
