Alycia Lane, Day Two

The Alycia Lane scandal officially got weird today, as it it wasn't already. The slap-happy Philly TV anchor has been given early vacation from her station, and was already edited out of an already-taped holiday special.

Even more strangely, word has gotten out that immediately after getting out of jail, Lane decided to call up Gov. Ed Rendell, in order to "give her side of the story" about what had happened. On Sunday night, when Lane called, Rendell was presumably immersed in important state business- namely, making his weekly appearance on "Eagles Post-Game Live."

Alycia also reportedly rang up State Sen. Vince Fumo but he is, alas, facing much bigger legal issues than she likely ever will.

The story officially entered the twilight zone last night when Bill O'Reilly did a segment about it, asked whether there is a "feminist angle," and then took Lane's side, arguing that her assaulting of a New York City police officer wasn't that big a deal. Bet Billo wouldn't feel that way if Alycia were an illegal alien...

You forgot yesterday's series of events, which included Rendell calling Cataldi and co. to discuss Alycia Lane but more importantly, to discuss the Eagles.
