Kim Kardashian's wedding gown had a tulle skirt with a basque waist and Chantilly lace set off by a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.  Pretty impressive for a bride who became famous for not wearing anything at all.

A pilot for Cathay Pacific Airlines was suspended for initiating a flight attendant into the "Mile High Club" in the cockpit of his Boeing 747.  He'd have gotten away with it if he hadn't left the intercom on after pointing out landmarks.

The Little League World Series is underway in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania.   It's getting more like the major leagues every year -- identical equipment, national radio and TV coverage,  Girl Scout groupies. . .
