Danger Dick

Dick Cheney has canceled an upcoming speaking engagement in Canada after his security team determined the nation is too dangerous for the former vice president to visit.

For his own safety, Cheney will make all future speeches at a secure, undisclosed location, which The Buzz presumes is a private hunting camp in Texas, with Cheney brandishing a shotgun.

Pinup: The newest Internet sensation is Pinterest, a virtual scrapbook that enables users to organize favorite images and ideas (Page A4).

The site is especially popular with women who share fashion and home-decorating ideas, which explains a cluster of headaches reported by husbands after prolonged, mostly involuntary, exposure to their wives' Pinterest pinboards.

The Little Dance: March Mediocrity begins tonight, as the University of Washington mens basketball team takes on Texas-Arlington in round one of the National Invitational Tournament, also known as the "Not Invited Tournament.".

The 32-team NIT field competes for the right to chant "We're No. 69!" at a half-empty Madison Square Garden on March 29.
