Sooners flew home to Norman and the Trojans were returned to their
glass-enclosed cage at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas.
Elizabeth Smart's father said Tuesday he wants quick
resolution to the trial of his teenage daughter's kidnappers in
Utah. What an ordeal. They knew she had been psychologically
damaged after she told police how much she enjoyed Los Angeles.
Beverly Hills was hit this week by a rash of home
burglaries. Police blame Russian and Colombian gangs. We wanted

U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer urged Democrats Wednesday to
retain Terry McAuliffe as the party chairman. His allegiance is no
secret. If Terry McAuliffe were any closer to Bill and Hillary
Clinton he would be on trial for driving the getaway car.
Arnold Schwarzenegger told the legislature Wednesday if they
