Bounty on Anti-Muslim Filmmaker: a “religious cleric” in Afghanistan has offered a bounty of $300,000 to anyone who kills the maker of the film that has angered Muslims world-wide.

Jurassic Park Just Won’t Happen: if you’ve been tossing sleeplessly at night think that a T-Rex might come crashing through your front door, you can now rest assured.

Sopranos In Space: No, not Tony Soprano. Sarah Brightman.  She’s bought a ticket to ride a Russian space ship to the international space station, saying the trip will be “life-changing” and a “beautiful journey.”  She’ll also bring some excellent vocal talent to the international space station.  Up until now, they’ve only had fantastic dancers.
