Palm Springs was threatened by wildfires fanned by desert winds Sunday. Four thousand acres west of the rich desert resort town were ablaze. All the retired attorneys looked outside their windows and saw the flames and thought they had died.
Trinity Church on Wall Street rang its bells for three and one half hours on Saturday. The historic Episcopal church just spent a million dollars installing twelve new chimes. It's what Exxon Mobil investors call giving back to the community.

Saddam Hussein's prosecutor in Baghdad said Sunday the verdict in his trial for crimes against humanity could be delayed. The dictator has said before he wants to be executed by firing squad. What man doesn't want to walk the streets free?
The U.S. government is investigating an Oakland company that makes touch-screen voting machines because it may have ties to Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez. Right now he's very angry at himself.
