    'Reg Presley, lead singer of 60s rock band The Troggs, has died aged 71. The band's frontman died at his home in Hampshire, his daughter, Karen, confirmed to the BBC. The Troggs had a number of hit songs, including Wild Thing and Love Is All Around.

    Courtney Love is the classic walking disaster. She's who Britney wanted to be (well, before she got all rebounded). She's Lindsay Lohan's inspiration. She was actually quite good as the broken-down, track-marked, life-love of the new bailout wannabe in The People Vs. Larry Flynt, if you like characters who tend to resemble their actors.

The FDA's letter, dated Nov. 10, also said the 30- and 15-second ads omit to mention that Viagra is...
