The FBI picked up a man believed to be the notorious Unabomber, living in a
Montana cabin: "He was easy to spot. His mailbox was blown to smithereens
by mail returned for insufficient postage." (Argus Hamilton)
"Trying to save face on another front, the FBI is boasting that there's now
one less 'free man' in Montana." (Alex Pearlstein)
L'eggs has a new type of pantyhose it says will make you look 5 pounds
thinner without dieting. Says Paul Ryan, "Unfortunately, they squeeze you
so tightly that your hat size doubles."
A disgruntled former executive suing Mattel claims the toy company inflated
its sales total. Says Jenny Church, "C'mon! Who would expect realistic
figures from the maker of Barbie?"
Rap star Hammer has declared bankruptcy. Says Alex Kaseberg, "In effect,
he's holding up his wallet and telling his creditors, 'Can't touch this.'"
