'BIG' MOUTH. The current 15th edition of "Big Brother" has sparked outrage over some of its contestants' racist and homophobic outbursts. Now housemate Spencer Clawson -- who previously praised Hitler as a gifted speaker -- has topped that bar with apparently facetious comments in favor of child pornography. Among those not amused by the 31-year-old railroad conductor from Arkansas: his employer, Union Pacific, which said it "has taken all the action it can under the Collective Bargaining Agreement until Mr. Clawson is released from the show" and "has notified law enforcement" about Clawson's comments.
