You Mean Snooki Aint Worth More Than Toni Morrison??

Students at Rutgers University took to their Twitter pages to express their disdain over the school’s choice to pay Snooki $32,000 for a recent appearance to speak to their student body… a whole $2,000 more than Nobel -prize winning author Toni Morrison.  The school defended their decision noting that the student body as a whole chooses who they want to appear to speak for educational and entertainment purposes, and Snooki was their entertainers choice of the hour.

Snooki spoke to a sold out audience, so I guess when it comes to simple principals of supply and demand, they may have made the right decision as based around sheer business motives.  And while we seem to be in a generation that doesn’t like to read novels very often, they definitely like to see a little T&A…

Maybe that’s why they paid her so much more

Jalen Rose Gets Ejected From ESPN For Failure To Disclose DUI Arrest posted by on April 1, 2011

Jalen Rose And Alissa Milano look up tabloid headlines... Hopefully not Jalen's

Jalen Rose has been pulled off the air at ESPN due to his recent DUI controversy. To the credit of ESPN, it seems they’re more peeved about the fact that he waited nearly three weeks to tell his employers about his DUI, than the actual DUI itself.

Jalen was arrested on March 11th, 2011 (a disastrous day for quite a few), when Jalen lost control of his vehicle on an icy road and crashed.  He later stated that he regrets getting behind the wheel, as he thought he had the ability to properly operate his vehicle, but a blood alcohol test performed by local authorities proved otherwise.

Let’s hope that this issue can be resolved soon, because Jalen is a great guy, and everyone makes mistakes.  It’s unfortunate that this event occurred as he was in his hometown to open his “Jalen Rose Leadership Academy” to help under-privileged teens with college preparatory experience.  Let it be known that Jalen HAS NOT been terminated from his position, but merely pulled off the air as ESPN feels their integrity has been compromised with the situation.  In addition, one would have to ask, what would the outcome have been had Jalen disclosed the arrest to ESPN at the time of the incident… Hmmm…
