In appreciation, here’s a little roundup of just a few of Streisand’s career’s highlights.

Has your holiday movie-watching experience been tainted by Casey Anthony? Cause mine was, just a little bit. Yesterday, I was in theaters to see The Guilt Trip, a feel-good, guilty-pleasure flick with Babs Streisand and Seth Rogen, when suddenly Casey Anthony popped up on the silver screen. Like a nightmare, she was back—and on Christmas!

To help keep you sane during the holiday hullabaloo, Lauren Stover, director of security at Miami International Airport, has a few travel tips. A quick word for the wise: Leave the fruitcake, the kilo of cocaine, and the holiday fowl at home.
