THICKER THAN GAS -- Makers of the priciest production automobiles in the world, the Rolls-Royce Motorcar Company reported their highest new-vehicle sales figures in decades. This despite their paying absolutely zero attention to mileage or the soaring cost of fuel. No mystery here. Rollies don't run on gasoline -- they run on blue blood.
PHOTO FINISH -- Researchers from Pennsylvania's Akhmim Mummy Studies Consortium examined a 4000-year old Egyptian mummy from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts with a state-of-the-art CT scanner that renders 3-D images heretofore unavailable. Expert preservationists who will analyse the images include archaeologists, radiologists, and Cher.
SHAKE RATTLE ROLL -- French electrical engineer Andre Cassagnes who in 1959 invented the world's most creative kids' art toy Etch-A-Sketch, died at age 86 at his home near Paris. Well, died is a bit of a stretch. Actually, his caregiver, failing to awaken him, shook him gently and he just seemed to disappear.
REINCARNATION -- The TNT Channel has revived the smash 1978-91 nighttime soaper "Dallas" with Larry Hagman, who died last November, still playing the role of family patriarch JR. Only in Hollywood. The show went from "Who Shot JR?" in 1980 to "Who Brought JR Back to Life?" in 2013.
