Hall of Fame

Updated

That, and other news, in today’s Roundup and Recap.

Jane Fonda, Jack Nicholson, Dave Brubeck, Quincy Jones, Jack LaLanne and Robert Graham were among the  famous figures inducted into the California Hall of Fame in Sacramento on Monday. The ceremony at the California Museum in Sacramento honors those who helped shape the state. California First Lady Maria Shriver started the Hall of Fame in 2006. Question I’d like to ask: Given the current governor’s path to power, did LaLanne ever hold any political ambitions?

Al Franken today could get a clearer picture of his chances for overtaking Norm Coleman’s 192 vote lead in their race for a Senate seat in Minnesota.

Jay Carney of Time is leaving the magazine to work as Joe Biden’s communications director.

Time, meanwhile, announces its Person of the Year on Wednesday. The big shock will be if it is not Obama, so there will be some attention this year to the runners up.   

Rufus Wainwright isn’t that gung ho about marriage, but he was still opposed to Prop 8. His line of reasoning, however, is a bit unique.

He tells the New York Press, “Oddly enough, I’m actually not a huge gay marriage supporter. I personally don’t want to get married but I think that any law or amendment to the constitution that deals with sex and love should just be banned in general. I don’t think any government should encroach on what goes on in the bedroom at all. Frankly, if you want to marry a dog, why don’t you go ahead and marry a dog, I don’t care. I’m a complete libertarian and so I really disagree with it.”
