NATURE VERSUS NURTURE: "Have you heard those ads on the radio for these
all-natural, California-grown Thanksgiving turkeys?" asks Jay Leno. "They

In the News: Nike is still employing underage workers in its overseas
factories. The proof, says Alex Kaseberg, is that "the motivational slogan

O.J. Simpson testified at his civil trial. "I think the low point was when
he blamed everything on the evil bloodstain fairy," says Alex Pearlstein.

testified he never, never struck his wife Nicole. Man, its bad enough he
has to find the real killers. Now he's gotta go look for the real wife

A survey shows that United Airlines serves the healthiest airline food. "The
report has sent shock waves through the world's airports," Alan Ray says.
"Somebody actually sampled the food."

next? Most pleasant New York cabby?" (Life/Entertainment)
