thirtieth anniversary of its first show. The original cast really
burned out. Last week tourists reported seeing Chevy Chase in an
antique shop on Rodeo Drive, for twelve hundred dollars.
Get Rich or Die Trying caused a controversy Friday with its
movie billboards in Los Angeles. It's about gang life and the rap
music scene. Billboard magazine said the movie glorifies violence
and encourages drug use and gave it four stars.
McDonald's announced Monday it will print full nutritional
information on all of its food wrappers to try to prevent obesity
