Burn-outs

Burn-outs

More cranberry sauce? Right about the time many Americans will be sitting down for Thanksgiving dinner, Comet ISON will be hurtling within 730,000 miles of the sun at 828,000 mph. If it survives, it could put on a brilliant celestial show (Page A2).

It's more likely however that the comet's flyby of the sun will leave it looking more like the turkey your uncle deep-fried to a hunk of charcoal last year.



Sorry to impose, but we brought some Timbits: GQ magazine has released its list of least-influential celebrities for 2013. Dennis Rodman, former basketball star and personal friend of North Korea's Kim Jong Un tops a list that includes Anthony Weiner, Miley Cyrus, Paula Deen, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and even President Obama (Page A2).

You might have expected crack-smoking, drunken-driving Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to have made the list, but GQ determined that Ford actually influenced about two-thirds of Canadians to seek asylum in the U.S.

Left to haggle over their standing in the list, Justin Bieber argued that he had more influence over screaming tween girls than President Obama had over screaming Fox News viewers.
