     "It was a big year for the scientist who cloned that sheep.
      He was named a runner-up for Time magazine's Man of the Year,
      and now he's been hired by NBC to clone sitcoms."
							- Jim Rosenberg


The Iceberg Cometh: "Hollywood is wondering if there's a way to make a
sequel to 'Titanic.' It's going to take some creativity. Suppose the
survivors are a professor, a movie star, a skipper, a millionaire and his
wife... (Argus Hamilton)

Politics as Usual: The mayor of Acteal, Mexico, was arrested in connection
with the Chiapas massacre and the outgoing mayor of Darby, PA, was booked
under suspicion of bank robbery. "Gee, remember the good old days when
mayors just smoked crack?" (Daily Scoop)

It's All Relative: Now that Woody Allen has married the girl he helped raise
with Mia Farrow, his stand-up routine could pack extra punch.  "He's the
first comedian in history who will be able to do mother-in- law jokes about
his 'ex-wife.'" (Hamilton)

Doggone: President Clinton's new puppy is quickly adjusting to life in the
beltway.   "He no longer wants to be known as a dog. He prefers the term
Labrador-American." (Hamilton)

"Republican efforts to destroy President Clinton are bordering on the
obsessive. It's become a Roadrunner cartoon.  Dan Burton was last seen in
the Maryland countryside painting a fake tunnel into Camp David." (Hamilton)

Bob Costas took over NBC's basketball coverage last week. He replaces the
one and only Marv Albert. "He certainly has some high heels to fill."
