HOMELESS GONE WILD: It looks like we've once again reached a new low point in American popular culture. Aided by large amounts of on-air promotion by Howard Stern, a pair of L.A.-based filmmakers claim to have sold over 100,000 copies of their videotaped compilation of homeless people fighting. According to the New York Post's Page Six the video, "Bumfights: Cause for Concern, Volume 1," contains such priceless nuggets as "homeless people breaking each other's bones, pulling their own teeth out with pliers and drinking urine-laced booze," as well as "a man impersonating Aussie zoologist Steve 'Crocodile Hunter' Irwin" and engaging in various misdeeds while screaming, "'Crikey! This one's a young buck!'" Sure to be the most highly circulated black-market video since last month's urine-fueled R. Kelly sex romp, "Bumfights" sounds rude, crude, vile, and disgusting- and I for one can't wait to get my hands on a copy.

WEST COAST ANTI-SEMITISM: Also in the New York Post, John Podhoretz checks in with the first report I've seen of the recent European anti-Semitism craze actually reaching America. A group of pro-Palestinian campus crazies surrounded a group of Israeli protesters at San Francisco State University, threatening them with physical violence while chanting anti-Semetic slurs. While I usually consider Podhoretz to be an irritating gasbag when he's writing about anything not related to Israel, I give him credit for bringing this situation to light, and I sincerely hope it's not the beginning of a nationwide trend. No, these people are not anti-Semites because they oppose Israel; they're anti-Semites because they hate Jews.
