Selection Sunday: Harvard Takes No. 12 Seed in East, Faces No. 5 Vanderbilt on Thursday.

So I think we need to take business as usual in a lot of ways.” [The Crimson]

Seth MacFarlane Previews ‘Ted,’ The Boston-Based, Rated-R Movie About a Teddy Bear. It’s a premise so silly that only Seth MacFarlane could be behind it.
