Pakistan gave the U.S. permission to interview bin Laden’s wives, but most Americans had seen them before -- on CNN when they were married to Larry King.

The world’s safest delivery driver was recently honored by UPS after accumulating four million accident-free miles.  Actually, he had a few but no one reported him.  Whenever he knocked a fender off, he thoughtfully left it propped against the owner’s front door.

Payton Hillis is having second thoughts about allowing John Madden to use his photo on the cover of his video game.  And he has plenty to be nervous about.  The last guy on the cover had his butt dissected on TV by Madden’s famous “tele-strator.
