Bloomberg, LettermanSorry ladies, it looks like David Letterman is getting rid of his new beard.

On tonight's show (actually taped Wednesday - I was wondering if Letterman would still do an early taping of the Friday show after his return from the writers strike), Letterman announces that he's getting rid of the beard. And he's not going to do it himself either. The beard is going to be shaved off on stage on Monday's show by someone else.

Jon Stewart"A Current Affair": NYC Mayor Bloomberg tried to calm the masses in Queens after Con Ed failed to finish repairs. Bloomberg praised Con Ed for what they had done so far, and the guy behind him was all like, "OMGwhutever." Ahh, that made me giggle. Nice poker face.

Martha Stewart's daughter fixated on horses

Martha Stewart's daughter, Alexis, is on a mission to get horse-drawn carriages out of New York City. She recently wrote a letter to Mayor Michael Bloomberg to ban the attractions. Stewart is a member of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), a group that is very upset over a recent collision between a vehicle and a horse-drawn carriage. The carriage driver was seriously injured in the crash, as was the horse, which was euthanized. Stewart contends that horses are forced to work long hours in unpleasant weather, on hard pavement, and breathe in polluted air from all the cars on the streets. She also says they happen to be a danger to pedestrians and others who use the streets and sidewalks of New York. Operators of horse-drawn carriages argue that the horses are treated well and that the horse-car crash on January 2nd was a fluke.
