A dark day for dark days.  
One of my daily must-reads, Liz Kelly's Celebritology blog, had a link to this news item: "Heidi and Spencer Writing a Book on How to Get Famous". (If you don't know who they are and don't live in a cave, buy yourself a lottery ticket: the odds of them remaining completely under your radar are astronomical. If you've merely been fortunate enough to have seen less than a minute of anything they've ever done on tv, you can still count yourself lucky enough to justify buying a scratch-and-win ticket.)

Reading the Celebritology item left me feeling like I'd missed a bigger story, somehow. So I wrote it.

In other news, Conquest, War, Famine, and Death, better known to the Western world as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse from the Bible's Book Of Revelations, have announced their retirement.

In a prepared statement, the Feared Four said their retirement was for unspecified "personal reasons," immediately renewing speculation that the announcement by Heidi and Spencer Pratt that they were writing a book was behind the Horsemen's move.

Unnamed sources close to the four have said that some of the group viewed the Pratts' book as proof that their services were no longer required. One Horseman is said to have uttered in frustration, "How can we [expletive deleted] compete with THAT?" when told of the book deal.

Heincer have declined to comment directly on the news of the Four Horsemen's retirement, but Heidi Pratt did say that she was looking forward to riding a horse while topless during an upcoming photo shoot for Playboy magazine.
