Celebrity Legal Watch

You know what's stranger than Steely Dan writing a letter (to Luke Wilson) accusing Owen Wilson of stealing the plot from their song for his movie? Owen Wilson's response, which is either (a) a joke or (b) an indication that he is blissfully unaware that Steely Dan is a band, not an individual.

Mel Gibson was arrested for DUI. It's a good thing he's not in one of those religions that frowns upon hooch.

Lindsey Lohan is one very bad employee, showing up late and calling in sick to work because she was out late partying the night before.

Remember Crocodile Dundee? Well, he's being investigated for cheating on his taxes.

And, even though this is not celebrity-related, check it out:

As far as I can tell, it's real.

I wonder if George C. Sanders is available for a little pro bono work. There are a couple of local ordinances I'd like to challenge, like the one banning smoking on the beach.

Hmmm . . . I wonder if Falwell and Robertson will support Gibson the next time he makes a movie to sell to the Evangelicals. I give Gibson credit for apologizing and admitting his mistake. Also makes me wonder . . . does an alcoholic Catholic take mass with real wine?

I don't know how the evangelicals will feel about his drinking and driving, or admission that he's battling alcoholism. Is the religious right anti-alcohol?

Personally, I don't have a problem with Mel Gibson being an alcoholic, or his Jesus movie, but allegedly, he made some anti-Semetic remarks during the arrest. I do have a problem with that.

If he said that, then that's ashame. One night getting drunk can mess a lot up. As the greatest philospher of them all, Homer Simpson, once said, "Alcohol, the cause of, and solution to, all life's problems."
