A tip o' the cap to Big Papi ... It's the first time since Mantle/Maris in 1961 that an American League player has reached 40 home runs and 100 RBI within his team's first 110 games of the season.

Weekend Box Office Results for August 4-6, 2006
  • The new releases did quite well, especially the two wide releases. Talladega Nights did substantially better than its estimate, and Barnyard was a very pleasant surprise for its studio, doubling the Box Office Mojo prediction.
  • Overall, the box office was 18% above last year, with just about all of that $18 million accounted for by the unexpectedly strong performance of the new releases (An extra ten million from Talladega, and six million from Barnyard.)

"Saudi Kingdom's Leading Executioner Says: "I Lead a Normal Life"
  • Saudi Arabia’s leading executioner Muhammad Saad Al-Beshi will behead up to seven people in a day. “It doesn’t matter to me: Two, four, 10 — As long as I’m doing God’s will, it doesn’t matter how many people I execute.”
  • An executioner’s life, of course, is not all killing. Sometimes it can be amputation of hands and legs. “I use a special sharp knife, not a sword,” he explains. “When I cut off a hand I cut it from the joint. If it is a leg the authorities specify where it is to be taken off, so I follow that.”
