Passed away at 97: the last living witness to the miracle of Fatima. She was the only one who claimed to have heard clearly what the Virgin Mary said, and she outlived the others by 85 years! (They both died within three years of the apparition.)

Given that Frank Sinatra is dead and won't be able to perform in a cock-sock with The Red Hot Chili Peppers, I guess this is the ultimate possible celebrity duet: Jessica Simpson and Willie Nelson, together at last for the Dukes soundtrack. Oh, man, the IRS must really be on Willie's case again.

Michael Jackson Hospitalized He can't go to court because he's "very, very ill". Huh? I thought that was the reason why he had to go to court in the first place.

This week's movies: Because of Winn-Dixie - 3/4 positive reviews. Family movie. Sounds like the younger kids will like it. "A magical story about a lonely girl whose life is transformed by a smiling stray dog who has a spiritual gift for creating community and bringing joy to everyone."

This week's movies: Son of the Mask - 29% positive reviews. General consensus: Alan Cumming is campily amusing as Loki, but the film is "gruesomely unfunny...a disastrous mess. It's actually physically painful to watch."

This week's movies: Constantine - 58% positive reviews. I reckon you will love it or hate it. The reviews range from extremely negative to extremely positive, to such an extent that you can't believe they are discussing the same movie. Examples:
  • "Apocalyptically awful, 'End of Days' bad. Religiously it's blasphemous, but as a movie it's just plain lousy."
  • "An achievement of both story and technique, Constantine is one of the finest comic-based films ever made."
  • "Constantine is a pretentiously muddled, emotionally hollow, nonsensical film"
  • "One of those rare pulpy page-to-screen translations that actually gets it right."

ESPN.com, annual Page 2 poll of the Hottest Female Athletes. Very even playing field. We have a three-time Olympic high jumper, a medalist in the 100, some other real athletes, and ... some chick who finished 12th in the billiards rankings. Shouldn't Jolie be on the list? Surely she's in the top twelve in the world in some competitive activity. In fact, I could probably suggest a few ...

Fans buy 'Fawlty Towers' hotel.
  • "John Cleese, who co-wrote and starred in the series, based his outrageously rude character Basil Fawlty on Donald Sinclair, a former owner of the hotel, after staying there with other members of the Monty Python comedy team in 1971."
  • I got interested in this subject because I had never seen the man's name mentioned before. Here is an article about the real Mr Sinclair.
    • "Mrs Harrison recalled an occasion when Mr Sinclair halted breakfast because a waiter had given up waiting for him to make tea and had pinched teapots designated for another table. He went up and down the tables like a policeman, questioning the guests. He came across a set of teapots at a table for two. He realised because of their size they were meant for a table for four, and he asked the guests for a description of the waiter."
    • "He thought it ridiculous that people wanted to drink at lunchtime. These were paying guests. They would be out by the pool looking for a drink and he hadn't opened the bar."

Burt Young is the new James Bond! OK, I made that up. The story doesn't really identify the new Mr Bond, but it does explain why the last one left. "Pierce Brosnan was reportedly dropped from playing James Bond because he wanted 42 million dollars to reprise the role."
