What I find most surprising in these following statements is that David Geffen is going to “blog” on a site that’s entitled “Huffington Reports” and not, at least, “Geffen Presents…” or maybe even, “from David Geffen, the Geffen Huntington Report, a work by David Geffen.”
I wonder if they’ll maintain comments sections.
I bet none of them blogs without “help.”

We’re waiting with bated breath, I tell ya’. Really, the tension is so thick it’s like buttah…
