Good grief. Is this the best the media barons can offer in the way of political coverage? The "this" is the recent fad of jumping on presidential candidate John Edwards as a phony. Are his policies phony? No - even critics acknowledge that he has put forth an honest proposal to provide health care for every American, including saying forthrightly that he would pay for it with tax hikes on the richest Americans. He also speaks compellingly about solutions to poverty and how to restore the middle class.

Surprise Show In D.C.

Live Earth

Al Gore has announced a surprise Live Earth concert in Washington, foiling Senate Republicans who blocked Gore's attempt to bring his global warming extravaganza to the grounds of the U.S. Capitol building

The former vice-president said Friday that the all-day "Mother Earth" concert would be held on the National Mall at the National Museum of the American Indian - about two blocks from the Capitol - as part of Saturday's concert series focused on climate change. The headliners are Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood.

"Global warming naysayers in the political world have not been able to have their way, because this will - despite their best efforts - be held on the Mall," Gore said.

The "Mother Earth" show had been previously planned but Gore announced Friday that it would be part of the Live Earth series. The concert will also feature films, music, dancing and guest speakers, including scientists and cultural leaders from the American Indian community.

Wins Damages

Elton John

Elton John has won 116,000 euros ($157,700) in damages and costs from a Paris art dealer who sold him sculptures supposedly dating from the 18th century that turned out to be fake, according to court papers.

In a judgment issued on June 26, the dealer, Jean Renoncourt, was ordered to pay the singer the purchase price of $360,000 plus interest from the time the statues were sold in 1996. He was also ordered to take back the statues.

The four statues, representing figures from Greek mythology, were sold as the work of the Italian sculptor Luigi Grossi, who died in 1795.

According to an expert judgment commissioned by the court, the sculptures were determined to date from the late 20th century.

Put Surplus Art On eBay

Dutch Museums

Part of the Dutch national art collection featuring some 1,000 paintings, statues and other objects has gone on sale through Internet auction site eBay, officials said Friday.

Five museums are also taking part in the initiative which has sparked outrage among some of the artists whose work is up for sale.

Between now and October 1,000 works of art, at the rate of 50 a week, will by auctioned on eBay.

It's Back - Who Cares

'The Apprentice'

NBC and producers of "The Apprentice" will bring Donald Trump's reality TV show back from the brink of cancellation for at least one more season, industry sources said on Friday.

The sources told Reuters on condition of anonymity that NBC plans to announce a renewal at an annual summer presentation to television critics on July 16, about two months after the show had appeared on the verge of prime-time extinction.

There was no official word on a deal from NBC, the Trump organization or executive producer Mark Burnett, but all three parties have acknowledged in recent weeks that negotiations on a possible return of the show were continuing.

Has Memory Problems

Tennessee Tuxedo

Fred Thompson (R-Watergate Insider), who is weighing a Republican presidential bid as a social conservative, "has no recollection" of performing lobbying work in 1991 for a family planning group that was seeking to relax an abortion counseling rule, a spokesman said Friday.

The Los Angeles Times reported on its Web site that Thompson was retained by National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association to lobby the administration of President George H.W. Bush to ease a regulation that prevented clinics that received federal money from offering any abortion counseling.

At the time, Thompson, a lawyer, worked as a lobbyist at Arent Fox Kintner Plotkin & Kahn, a Washington firm.

The newspaper cited minutes from a meeting of the association when Thompson's work was discussed as well as the recollections of five individuals.

10 Most Bizarre World Records


Pleads Guilty To DUI

Jessica Smith

Jessica Smith, a former cast member of MTV's "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County," received three years probation after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge, prosecutors said Thursday.

Smith's attorney entered the plea on her behalf Monday without her appearing, said Orange County district attorney's spokeswoman Susan Schroeder.

She was also ordered to perform 80 hours of community service and pay $1,300 in fines and penalties.

Smith, 19, was arrested in March for investigation of felony driving under the influence of alcohol after crashing a Volkswagen Beetle into another car on the San Diego Freeway, according to a California Highway Patrol report.

Recycled Cell Number

Shira Barlow

For months, Shira Barlow's cell phone was flooded with wrong-number calls and text messages, mostly between 2 and 4 a.m. on weekends. Told they had reached a college student, callers refused to believe it.

Barlow's story began on Valentine's Day during a night out with friends. She was carrying her phone in a back pocket when it fell into a toilet. When she replaced it, her wireless company insisted on assigning the San Francisco native a new number with a 310 area code rather than 415.

Barlow had been given a recycled phone number that used to be Paris Hilton's. The practice stems from efforts to conserve phone numbers to minimize area-code splitting.

Barlow plans to keep the number because she says it has been a greater source of amusement than a hassle.

Paternity Suit

Goran Visnjic

A Croatian woman is suing "ER" star Goran Visnjic, claiming he's the father of her 4-month-old daughter and demanding a paternity test.

Mirela Rupic, 36, filed the lawsuit after Visnjic refused to recognize the child as his, Rupic's lawyer, Nenad Skare, told The Associated Press on Friday.

Visnjic, who plays Dr. Luka Kovac on the long-running NBC series, has been married to Ivana Vrdoljak since 1999 and lives in Los Angeles. The couple told Croatian media last spring they have adopted a boy, born in April, in the United States.

Rupic told Friday's Jutarnji List that Visnjic "knew about my pregnancy from the start." The newspaper quoted her as saying she decided to sue him after he told her recently he would financially support the child, but never recognize her as his own.

10 Thrifty Ways to Deal with Mosquitoes


No Waiting


They're flush with pride in a southwestern Chinese city where a recently-opened porcelain palace features an Egyptian facade, soothing music and more than 1,000 toilets spread out over 32,290 square feet.

Officials in Chongqing are preparing to submit an application to Guinness World Records to have the free four-story public bathroom listed as the world's largest, the state-run China Central Television reported Friday.

"We are spreading toilet culture. People can listen to gentle music and watch TV," said Lu Xiaoqing, an official with the Yangrenjie, or "Foreigners Street," tourist area where the bathroom is located. "After they use the bathroom they will be very, very happy."

Some urinals are uniquely shaped, including ones inside open crocodile mouths and several that are topped by the bust of a woman resembling the Virgin Mary.






In Memory

Johnny Frigo

Johnny Frigo, a versatile jazz violinist and bassist who toured with Jimmy Dorsey and co-wrote the jazz standard "Detour Ahead," has died, according to his son. He was 90.

Johnny Frigo was born on Chicago's South Side and spent much of his career playing bass. After playing with the U.S. Coast Guard band at Ellis Island during World War II, he toured with clarinetist Jimmy Dorsey and his orchestra.

Around that time, Frigo wrote "Detour Ahead" with Lou Carter and Herb Ellis, a song that became a jazz standard recorded by Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan, among others.

He was in his late 60s or early 70s when he turned his attention to the violin, appearing twice on "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson.

Frigo was also a poet and artist with a keen sense of humor. When Carson asked him why he'd waited so long to launch his jazz violin career, he replied that he didn't want there to be enough time for him to become a has-been.

Frigo is survived by his son; Rick, wife, Brittney Brown; and sister, Aurora Bray.
