     "It was reported today that Barry Manilow is taking a year off to write
      a Broadway show. My question is, Taking year off from what?"

Spy versus spy: Another CIA official has been charged with spying for
the Russians:

"Oh, that is soooo '80s!" (Cutler Daily Scoop)

"He not only gave them the names of agents but also building plans, policy
information...and the best places to score crack in L.A." (Cutler)

"The least he could have done was start a crack epidemic in Moscow while he
was over there." (Alex Pearlstein)

"He was arrested after agents trailed him to Hollywood and photographed him
passing Victoria's secrets to Frederick." (Bob Mills)

"His Russian code name is 'Almost Pulditov.'" (Paul Ecker)
