    Pour another margarita for Jimmy Buffett. The famously laid-back singer, best known for his 1977 hit "Margaritaville," just landed the first No. 1 album in his 30-year career. "Licence to Chill" sold 238,597 copies in its first week at the stores, putting it atop the Billboard Top 200 Album chart. That's more than triple the opening-week figure of Buffett's last studio CD, 2002's "Far Side of the World." Buffett's previous highest position was No. 4 in 1996 with "Banana Wind." But that album only sold half what the new one managed in its first week. Buffett and his fans, who...

"I'm feeling like a guppy in a tankful of sharks," Hoffman told The Frederick News-Post for a story published Thursday. Lawyers for the famously laid-back singer accused the Hoffmans of using the name to...
