     "Researchers have discovered that chocolate produces some of the same
      reactions in the brain as marijuana....  The researchers also
      discovered other similarities between the two, but can't remember what
      they are."
				- Matt Lauer on NBC's Today show, August 22


"'Pleasantville' is doing well at the box office.  Two young people visit
a mythical place locked in the 1950's with no imagination, diversity, and
color.  Or, as Jesse Helms would call it, "heaven". (Ray)

President Clinton flew to Florida for the launching of space shuttle
Discovery. "It's to bid a fond farewell. As part of last week's
land-for-peace swap, Clinton gave South Florida to Israel." (Argus Hamilton)

A CNN poll has George W. Bush leading all GOP presidential candidates for
2000. "The guy is charming, he's articulate, he genuinely likes people, and
he's monogamous. And for most Americans, three out of four isn't bad."

Linda Blair, who scared the pants off a generation of moviegoers with her
role in "The Exorcist," told a Los Angeles radio station that she's got a
sitcom in development. "Apparently, she turned in a pilot script that had
the producers' heads spinning." (Ira Lawson)

"One of the expenses buried in the report detailing the $40 plus million
Ken Starr spent investigating the presidential sex scandal was a $127.42
restaurant tab for a lunch that Linda Tripp had with Monica Lewinsky.
Actually, only $120 was for food.  The other $7.42 was for the knife Monica
walked out with stuck in her back." (Steve Voldseth)
