    Excitement about Randy Moss' possible return to the Minnesota Vikings isn't just consuming the Twitterverse or the team's fan base. A certain quarterback's official Web site just put out an e-mail alert to subscribers. The subject line: "Breaking News Randy Moss to the Vikings????" And really, that's the rub. That's why the Vikings would even consider bringing back one of the most dynamic, divisive and volatile players in franchise history: Because they've already bent over backward to bring back quarterback Brett Favre for one more season, guaranteeing him $16 million for a final run at the Super Bowl. If you're...

    Back in May, when the furor over Jeremiah Wright threatened to derail the Obama campaign, the candidate mournfully explained his decision to leave the controversial Trinity United Church of Christ. "We don't want to have to answer for everything that's stated in a church," Obama said. "On the other hand, we don't want to have a church subjected to the scrutiny that a presidential campaign legitimately undergoes." After Obama parted from Wright, the preacher and Trinity United became the campaign issue that dared not speak its name.

Moss may face a misdemeanor charge for taking off her clothes, down to pasties and G-string, outside the city's Catholic church on Easter Sunday, as parishioners were leaving morning Mass. "She took that opportunity to make her statement, and she appeared nude to most people," said Ojai Police Chief Bruce Norris. "We got several calls." Moss now says that going to the church was "poor judgment on my behalf." She chose Easter Mass, she said, because "there are so many bad people who are hurting and destroying...

The same minister proclaimed that the Black people in New Orleans got a wake-up call with Hurricane Katrina.

    Barack Obama has finally distanced himself from Rev. Jeremiah Wright after a 20-year relationship, but the pastor who is replacing Wright at Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ is likely to be just as controversial. New Trinity pastor Otis Moss has called Biblical patriarch Abraham a “pimp” and made other statements many would consider offensive. After Obama called Wright’s comments “divisive and destructive,” a questioner noted that Rev. Moss has defended Wright and asked if Obama would continue attending the church.

    What's making the mini crop circles? Snails? Millipedes? A mysterious circular pattern on moss-covered logs has scientists scratching their heads. Last winter, researchers in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park discovered the symmetrical bull's-eye pattern on patches of liverwort (a close relative of moss) growing on pine trees that had died and fallen on the ground. At this point, biologists aren't sure what causes the circles. Some have suggested snails, while others have speculated millipedes. "Immediately, we thought of snails," said Keith Langdon, chief biologist with the Smokies. "But snails graze in a zigzag pattern. We can't find records of...

    Quarterback Tom Brady has yet to publicly comment on the Patriots' acquisition of receiver Randy Moss, but his actions speak volumes. As part of the whirlwind process that brought Moss to New England, Brady provided a key assist. Because the Patriots had to acquire the original terms of Moss's contract as part of the trade with the Raiders, the team needed to clear salary cap space to absorb the $9.75 million figure that Moss was scheduled to earn. Enter Brady, who agreed to restructure his present contract that runs through 2010 to create the space. That allowed the Patriots to...

    Minnesota Viking Randy Moss reacted to the $10,000 fine imposed by the NFL for his simulated mooning incident during their game with the Green Bay Packers last Sunday. Moss was quoted as saying, "It ain't nothing but 10 grand. What's 10 grand to me?" When asked Thursday if Moss had written the check yet, Moss responded, "When you're rich you don't write checks." When asked how he would pay the fine, Moss replied, "Straight cash, homey." Dante DiTrapana, Moss's agent, said he would appeal the fine. The $10,000 is a small penalty against Moss's $5.75 million salary this season.
