NAUGHTY Dogg • Regrets: President Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister (as of press time) Nuri al-Maliki are postponing their dinner, both citing big lunches. And, um, schedule changes. Also, the cancellation probably has nothing to do with the recently leaked confidential memo for the president that said al-Maliki couldn't put an end to his country's civil war. Yes, civil war.

• Snoop Dogg, you've just been busted again: What will you do now? How about appear on the cover of a Christmas-theme issue of Rolling Stone that calls you "America's Most Lovable Pimp" yet woefully neglects to use the phrase "Ho, ho, ho"? (Also, nice Esquire—or maybe Sports Illustrated—homage, RS art department.)
• It's that time of year again: The Sundance Film Festival lineup has been announced.
