Week 06.03.12 – There’s always something interesting in the news and this past week didn’t disappoint. Take for instance the two separate stories about the high school graduation ceremonies where family members were punished for cheering too loudly as their grad walked across the stage. One mom was even cuffed by the cops! Watch the video in the “Life in General” section. How about the story about “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd being told by a Twitter follower that she should be raped. Find out how she reacted to the situation in the “Entertainment” section. And let’s not forget about L-Boogie herself, Miss Lauryn Hill who recently released a statement about the “suppressive force” of “the system” and her issues with the IRS. That article can also be found in “Entertainment”.
