                "The secret of success is sincerity, if
                 you fake that you can do anything."

                              George Burns


"20/20's" Hugh Downs retired from the show on Friday after 10,637 hours as
a TV show host... Just to put that in perspective, that's 10,636 more than
Magic Johnson.  (Steve Voldseth)

Talk Show host Kathie Lee Gifford is embroiled in another scandal
surrounding the children who make her clothing line overseas.  Answering
charges they are paid just pennies a day, she said she is trying to correct
the situation-- she's given them all the 900 number to try out for her
co-host, Regis Philbin's show, "So Who Wants To Be A Millionaire." (Patrick
M. Rhody)

...President Clinton is our most-traveled president with some trips costing
$10 million, and one almost $43 million. But folks, that's a drop in the
bucket compared to what the "Tripp" trip cost us. (Bill Williams)

The U.S. Justice Department filed a lawsuit against the tobacco industry
yesterday, accusing the industry of fraud and deceit since the 1950s.  The
U.S. Justice Department, by contrast, is only guilty of fraud and deceit
since Waco. (Jim Rosenberg)
