VROOOOOM -- For the first time in NASCAR's history, a woman has won the pole position in the storied Daytona 500 auto race. Dana Patrick is also the foxiest looking female ever to grab the wheel, walking a fine line between her two roles. She has a manicurist, for instance, who deposits grease under her fingernails.
MOST UNFORGETABLE MAG -- Once counted among the nation's most popular periodicals, Readers' Digest, listing unpaid debts of $65 million, has formally filed for bankruptcy protection. They found out the hard way that, while laughter may be the best medicine, all it does for creditors is amuse them.
AHOY -- New York Harbor welcomed the arrival of the world's largest and most expensive yacht, the 500-foot, $1 billion Eclipse owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abromavich. It boasts two helicopter pads, two swimming pools, a disco hall, and a private submarine. It charters for $4 million per week, $88 extra if you want satellite TV.
REGULAR OR DECAF? -- A Florida couple who write self-help books on healthy living recommend, along with a high-fiber diet, daily coffee enemas to maintain a healthy colon. Kind of gives a whole new meaning to "Wake up and smell the coffee" doesn't it?
