    All right Al Gore III, you're still the tops when it comes to speeding in a Prius - but not by much. Steve Wozniak is right behind you. And when I say speeding, man o' man, do I mean speeding. You probably remember when the son of the former vice president was caught going 105 mph in Southern California last month. Well, a mention of that in a recent Roadshow column led a buddy of Wozniak's to check in, claiming that the co-founder of Apple Computer was ticketed for going 105 mph on Interstate 5 earlier this year. Whoa. Mr....

    As yet another tale of celebrity spawn gone wild, the arrest Wednesday of Albert Gore III -- son of the former vice president -- on suspicion of drug possession was routine except for one, rather mind-blowing detail: Gore was clocked in a blue Toyota Prius hybrid traveling on the southbound Golden State Freeway in Orange County, Calif., in excess of 100 m.p.h. "One hundred and five, actually," said Orange County sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino. "I think it's slightly downhill there." The former vice president Thursday declared his love for his son, said Albert III was receiving treatment and added that...

    WASHINGTON -- News that Al Gore's 24-year-old son, Al Gore III, was busted for pot and assorted prescription pills has unleashed a torrent of mirth in certain quarters. Gore-phobes on the Internet apparently view the son's arrest and incarceration as comeuppance for the father's shortcomings. Especially rich was the fact that young Al was driving a Toyota Prius when he was pulled over for going 100 mph -- just as Papa Gore was set to preside over concerts during a 24-hour, seven-continent Live Earth celebration to raise awareness about global warming. Whatever one may feel about the former vice president's...

    Mother whose son is serving time sees inequality in priest's sentencing. Patricia Jones can't believe it. Although the Rev. Daniel McCormack pleaded guilty to molesting five Catholic school boys, a judge handed down a 5-year sentence -- essentially one year for every boy McCormack confessed to molesting. Her own son got six years when he pleaded guilty to having sexual contact with a 12-year-old girl who allegedly was on the street selling sexual favors at 4 in the morning. "I am very bitter and very angry," Jones told me during a telephone interview on Tuesday. Five years ago, her son...
