Justin Bieber was charged with dangerous driving near his hometown in Canada after an ATV hit a minivan and occupants got into a yelling match, but the reports leave it unclear whether he was driving the ATV or was a passenger in the minivan.

[Note: Jack Jackson is away on vacation this week, celebrating solidarity with the workers of the world. In his place is Billy Halvorson, aged 9, a budding young gossip columnist.-- Eds.]

So dad said minimum wage should stay low so we don’t have to give people food stamps because they’re lazy. He said we have to make people wanna work and work hard all the time, otherwise people shoot each other, but that’s what happened with that girl and the Uzi, so dad said he would take me to the shooting range and we could start with something smaller like a .22 rifle, but I just wanna play Diablo 3 all night cuz they updated it with a cool patch and you can start over in a season if you want to.

Joan Rivers almost died I guess. She looks like a plastic doll, so maybe she can’t die.

Mom said I couldn’t watch Orange is the New Black with her because it’s too adult. I told her I didn’t wanna watch it anyway, so it was like no big deal.

Those new Star Wars movies are probably gonna be really cool, but Uncle Jack said he won’t see them unless they kill Jar-Jar in like the first five minutes. I think Jar-Jar is OK, but he would be pretty annoying to have over.

Batman and Superman are gonna be in some new movie, but I really don’t see how Batman is gonna help. Superman can pretty much do whatever, and Batman has to have all that Batstuff to be a superhero, so maybe Batman just tells Superman what to do, like, go find the Joker.

The Teen Choice Awards are apparently rigged, with online votes being meaningless. Teen Choice Awards, Go Take a Nap!

[Nihilism is nigh.--Eds.]

And Daniel Radcliffe said he was not very good in the Harry Potter movies, that he made a lot of young acting mistakes. Daniel, Go Take a Nap!
