QUICK TAKES

10 parties for Obama

President-elect Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, better have on their dancing shoes Jan. 20, as they will make their way through 10 official inaugural balls. No word on what Michelle Obama will wear, which musical groups will perform or whether daughters Sasha and Malia will attend. Six of the official balls will be at the Washington Convention Center, with others at Union Station, the Washington Hilton, the National Building Museum and the DC Armory.

Presenters named

The Golden Globe Awards are firming up their presenters for the Jan. 11 ceremony. Glenn Close, Ricky Gervais and Jake Gyllenhaal are the most recent stars to be added. They’ll join previously announce presenters Salma Hayek, Drew Barrymore, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jennifer Lopez, Amy Poehler, Simon Baker and Seth Rogen.

Spade donates

Actor David Spade, a one-time Phoenix resident, donated $100,000 to the Phoenix Police Department so it can buy about 50 AR-15 rifles. Spade said he made the donation after seeing a news report that Phoenix officers had to buy their own rifles. Phoenix Police Sgt. Andy Hill expressed gratitude on behalf of the department and said the rifles will be given to patrol officers.

Ugh, girls

“What guy would like that? You’ve got two girls ganging up on you. One is hard enough; two is unbearable.” — Simon Cowell, responding to an “American Idol” producer’s comment that judges Kara DioGuardi and Paula Abdul are teaming up against him in the new season.
