Meanwhile, in the World of the Stupid

Thank god, the world of celebrity has intruded here to assist me in getting over my funk. Not to go too People Magazine, but does this sound a tad, oh I don't know, contrived, or is the word pathetic?

Actor Jim Belushi has filed a $1 million lawsuit against his next-door neighbor, veteran actress Julie Newmar, accusing her of a "campaign of harassment" designed to drive Belushi from his home.

Belushi claims that Newmar, 71, who played the villainous Catwoman on the 1960s "Batman" TV series, destroyed a fence and landscaping on his property, spied on his family and blared loud music into his backyard.

The star of the ABC sitcom "According to Jim" also accused Newmar of spreading "defamatory statements" about him, calling him a "peeping Tom," "voyeur" and "sick."

I'm going to root for Newmar on this one.
