Today was Lindsay Lohan’s deadline to complete community service. There was a lot of speculation about whether or not she’d actually be able to do it. And if she couldn’t, she supposedly was going to flee the country on some rich dude’s payroll. Amazingly, she got it done, just in time.

Generally speaking, I think people should play within their weight class.
