  JFK Jr., the global village turns its lonely eyes to you, again.PDF files may take a moment to load

How unfortunate that John F. Kennedy, Jr. was born to a celebrated family within a culture whose only functioning mental attribute is its terribly selective memory.

With the death of JFK Jr., his wife Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy and her sister Lauren, the American public and the rest of the world is in mourning (at least according to the headline "Death of a celebrity in the global village touches us all" in the Sydney, Australia Morning Herald). But who, exactly, is being mourned?

  The Tip-offPDF files may take a moment to load

David Cone has had his ups and downs over a 13-year career, but he seems to belong in New York. Last year, he was almost a Cy Young Award winner, but he had to settle for a World Series ring. Last Monday, he pitched the Yankees’ second perfect game (no runs, no hits, no errors) in as many seasons. Oddly enough, the perfect game came on a night when the Yanks were honouring hall of fame catcher Yogi Berra, who caught the Yankees’ Þrst ever perfect game (in 1956), the only perfect game in World Series history.

Ha,
ha funny. Drop Dead Gorgeous is a damn funny movie. I was pleasantly surprised.
Sure, there were some moronic parts, but no more than any other comedy.

The story revolves around the small town of Mount Rose, Minnesota, which
is obsessed with their local teenage beauty pageant. Now when I say small

boots to the teeth, tattoos and gallons of whiskey, and you’ve got

Pussy’s guitar-driven Motörhead-meets-Misfits style rock and
raunchy stage antics would give any greasy raincoat type a hard-on.
