"As a writer, I could never live in Hollywood because I never meet
anyone who's not involved in the Industry. In Baltimore, there's a lady
who has got a club in her house, and if you ring the door in the middle
of the night, she'll get out of bed to set the place up for you. Try and
find that in L.A."
- Writer/Producer/Director John Waters
Stand by Your Man: According to a new poll, 67% of men would love to have
Hillary Clinton as a wife. "Well, sure, look what you could get away with!"
In Sports: The New York Yankees are leading the San Diego Padres in the
World Series. "These cities speak different languages. For instance, in
San Diego, a subway is a sandwich, while in New York, it's a public
restroom." (Argus Hamilton)
Summit Time: President Clinton, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
and Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat are continuing Mideast
peace talks at a summit in Maryland. "Arafat defended wearing his trademark
army uniform for the historic talks, insisting that he suffers from chronic
fatigues syndrome." (Joshua Sostrin)
The Art Institute: The new Bellagio hotel's special attraction is a
4300-million art collection. "Well, I know that's why people go to Vegas,
for the fine art. Forget the gambling and the hookers, check out the Monet.
After you've looked at $300 million worth of fine art, you might want to
see the 99-cent buffet next door." (Leno)
The Irish Sweepstakes: Two Irish leaders- one Protestant, one Catholic-
shared the Nobel Peace Prize for bringing a formerly divided people closer
together. "Runner-up was the organizer of the Fleetwood Mac reunion tour."
