The Best Link Today:

Okay, today I seriously mean "BEST LINK TODAY," at least for me and the other House fans, who were left to wonder why those evil producers killed off one of our favorite characters.  I don't want to be a spoiler, but you have to literally live under a rock to have missed this buzz, so . . .

Anyway, Zap 2 It reports today that the reason why Kal Penn left was not plot-driven or salary renegotiation-driven or even "I have a big movie career now"-driven.  The dude left a huge hit TV show to, YUP, join Obama's administration.

And, as if he wasn't already my favorite member of House's underling team, now I love him even more!!!  I don't know whether to be psyched or even more devastated.  All I know is, it would have been much cooler to have him disappear or quit or something, so he could come back, if that whole Obama/White House thang got old.  I wonder if he's surprised by the outpouring of freak out.

Maybe he wants to be President too?  Hmm . . . does Kumar's druggy past bode badly or well?

Only time (and not House) will tell.
