Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

One-time divorcee Judi liked “The Jetsons” so much, and disliked her maiden name (Crum) enough, that she opted for “Judi Jetson” as her legal name, even after a remarriage.

Too bad she got hitched again, because have I ever got the perfect match for her.

If you found yourself admiring Katherine Harris for her bold, Tammy Faye-like makeup application back in 2000, bad news: She’s claiming those photos and video images were amped up:

Harris, a Republican, was asked Monday by nationally syndicated radio host Sean Hannity whether that image bothered her.

“I’m actually very sensitive about those things, and it’s personally painful,” she said. “But they’re outrageously false… Whenever they made fun of my makeup, it was because the newspapers colorized my photograph.”

She has made similar allegations in newspaper articles since the recount and in January told The Associated Press, “The jokes about my appearance — it’s the computer-enhanced photos.”

I guess I can buy this conspiracy theory. After all, conservatives like Harris tend to be extremely black-and-white in outlook. So it’s up to that big, bad liberal media to colorize them — cosmetically, if not substantively.

Think you can keep this menacing-looking character from gobbling up your mouse cursor? Give it a shot, cowboy. It’s mildly addictive, perfect for burning away a few spare minutes.

While the entire Top Ten List from Tuesday’s “Late Show with David Letterman” was funny, the very first one Dave read hit me in such a way that I had a good, long, out-loud laugh — and that’s something rare in these jaded times.

From “Top Ten Rafael Palmeiro Excuses” for the Oriole’s steroid shame:

10. “Pete Rose bet me I wouldn’t do it”
