Angelina Jolie heads to Haiti

Angelina Jolie has already donated $1 million to Doctors Without Borders for Haitian earthquake relief, and now the actress is planning a visit to the devastated nation as a goodwill ambassador with the UN's refugee agency.

Jolie was in the Dominican Republic Monday speaking with hospitalized earthquake survivors, and will travel to Haiti later today, UNHCR spokesperson Andrej Mahecic said.

Details of Jolie's trip can't be disclosed for security reasons, but it's expected that she will spend her time meeting with more people affected by earthquake.

'The Bachelor': Not very awesome

It's hometown date time, and Jake is packing for his first trip in a hotel room surrounded by censored artwork.  I didn't know the motel art industry was that sensitive over what's shown.

Jake says there's a lot at stake here, as he's apparently just realized that proposing to one of these women is a "huge thing."

Our first stop is New York, where Jake connects with Gia.  The two take a boat ride around Manhattan, where Gia proudly notes that the Empire State Building is the one with the "pointy thing" on top.  She's also failing the little-known vocabulary competition of the show, courtesy of her frequent use of the world "like."

Day 8: 10 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Attention Bauerites, you know the drill. You know each season of "24" has its customary episode where the story simply does not dictate much heart-pounding action. We've seen it before right? So, was THIS the one?

It seemed like it as President Taylor and President Hassan negotiated terms. I barely batted an eye.

The Dana/Kevin debacle continues, and my annoyance with that storyline has officially reached critical mass. I've reached the point where I can check my voicemail messages (sans Bluetooth), boil eggs and/or do laundry simultaneously whenever Dana and Kevin are on screen. I enjoy those two that much.

As a reader commented a few weeks ago, this duo is the show's equivalent to Jar Jar Binks in "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace" and I agree completely. They are worthless. FULL POST
