Bill Maher Receiving Death Threats
Was it something he said? Or something we said, in this week's cover story on Bill Maher and his new comedy Religulous? Either way, someone got busy sending white powder and death threats to the McCallum Theater in Palm Desert where Maher was to appear, closing the theater for several hours on Friday night and generating long security lines on Saturday before the show. The powder proved harmless; Religulous, apparently, has fangs.
