Zebra Gives Birth to Foal Sired by Donkey: "It's male. But what is it? A zonkey? A deebra? That's the debate in Barbados since a zebra gave birth to a foal sired by a donkey." The foal does look rather ridiculous, but not as strange as the Zebra's previous foal, which was sired by Colin Farrell.

The trailer for My Treasure

Or has tried many times to get her mother to quit working the street, but without success. The daily routine of the 18 year-old Or is an endless succession of petty jobs: washing dishes in a restaurant, cleaning staircases and collecting deposit bottles while attending high school whenever she can. Ruthie's health is worsening. After an umpteenth visit to her mother at the hospital, Or decides that this time, things must change for good.

The trailer and two TV spots for Renny Harlin's Mindhunters
  • I saw this film and reviewed it in 2003 - not sure if Harlin has re-cut since then. It's a popcorn flick, but I kinda liked it, especially the first few minutes. Here are my thoughts about the film, or at least about the version that existed back then.

Politically correct police strike again.First Cookie Monster starts eating passion fruit, now they've even taken the trans fat out of Oreos. I sure hope Kraft has made sure that the taste has not changed, because if it has, just call this crap Newer Coke.

The complete list of People's 50 Most Beautiful People, 2005 style. People readers chose Pitt and Jolie as most beautiful man and woman. Alba couldn't topple Jolie from the top spot, but she did make the list, if you're wondering. (How could she not?)

Farmer convicted of feeding his employee to lions.
  • I was in Zimbabwe in the mid 90s, doing a project for Mobil, back when there was far less tension in that country. I was planning a weekend with a travel agent who asked me, "Golf or Victoria Falls?" I said, "I thought I could do both. Isn't there a course right there?" "Yes," she said, "but it is closed because of the drought." "I never thought of that," I replied lamely, "I guess they can't keep it playable without water." "That's not the problem," she explained, "because they can still keep it lush with water from the river if they need to. The problem is that when there is a drought, the lions expand their feeding territory, and their expanded area includes the golf course."
