    Connie Hines, an actress who portrayed Carol Post, whose husband Wilbur was the only person who could talk with Mister Ed in the 1960s television show, has died. She was 79. Hines died Friday at her home in Beverly Hills from complications of heart problems, said Alan Young, her "Mister Ed" costar. "I lost a great friend. She was always joyous," Young said Monday. In the show, which ran from 1961 to 1966 on CBS, the Posts moved into a rambling country home and found a horse in their barn. The center of the show became the banter between Young...

    Nearly 30 years ago, a Lockheed Constellation flew to its current location at a Helena college. If all goes as planned, the 1958 plane will do the same to its new home at an Oregon museum next year. After mechanics restore the plane, it will be flown to Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in McMinnville, Ore., where it will be on display alongside the famed Spruce Goose, the wood-resin plane billionaire Howard Hughes developed for use in World War II but which never lifted off past its initial prototype. “What an awesome looking machine,” University of Montana-Helena College of Technology...

    MSNBC's "Weekends with Maury & Connie" is being cancelled, TVNewser has learned. The program, hosted by Maury Povich and Connie Chung, will end its run next week. The husband and wife team taped their second-to-last show on Friday. "Weekends" launched almost exactly six months ago, on January 7, 2006. It launched to quite a bit of fanfare, and it aired four times a weekend (twice on Saturday and twice on Sunday) but it never seemed to find an audience. There's no word on whether Maury, Connie, or EP Lizz Winstead will have a future role at MSNBC...

    I was flipping through channels at the gym today, and I saw something I couldn't believe. Connnie Chung on CNN did a segement where she was fantasizing writing a letter to Ann Coulter. It was filmed like a dream sequence, and it showed her writing with a voiceover reading the letter. In the letter she says that maybe her psychological problems would be cured if she ate ...maybe a raisin or something. If that wasn't bad enough, at the end, she said, PS: BY THE WAY, DEAR..QUIT MIXING THE FINLANDIA WITH YOUR HALDOL!!! I couldn't believe it...then she and her...

    WASHINGTON -- President Bush on Friday called streamlining and reforming the U.S. tax code an "essential task for our country," but offered few hints of how he intends to get it done. Treasury Secretary John Snow said "everything's on the table," including possibly the popular home mortgage and charitable deductions and a former senator leading a tax-reform panel for Bush said that a national sales tax or flat tax also could be in the cards. "I am firm in my desire to get something done," Bush said at the end of a White House meeting with former Sens. Connie Mack,...

    SACRAMENTO -- More than 400 people gathered Thursday to watch former San Joaquin County jurist Connie Callahan ascend to the post of federal judge, less than eight months after she was nominated to the position. A host of San Joaquin County Superior Court judges, attorneys and court staffers joined Callahan's close friends and family Thursday as the diminutive legal star took her place on what is widely considered the most controversial court in the nation. "Connie Callahan will make her decisions based upon the law regardless of controversy or what the public opinion will be," said Morrison England, judge of...
