    This arsenal of firearms is among the dozens of weapons that have been taken off London’s streets during the Met’s latest gun amnesty.

Detectives from the Met’s gang unit today urged anyone still in possession of an illegal firearm to hand it in before the amnesty ends on Sunday night.

    Paramount was so worried the critics would hate G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra—and with good reason, it's awful—that they decided not to screen it for anybody. Just one problem: the first showing was at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, which means I have all night to tell you how bad it is. Bad. Bad. Bad. It's excruciatingly bad. Gigli bad. How bad are we talking?

UN-BAPTISED ! This week,poor Hawk is being prepared for....I dunno: his First Unholy Communion ?His kidnappers hand him a bunny rabbit,and tell him to kill it.

    REVELATIONS - HOUR 4(It Only Felt Like 4 Hours of Dreck !) ( Our understanding of this story was bolstered by the sudden appearance of a semi-lucid plot summary in the TV guide.)The Professor's "son" was kidnapped by Satanists last week. This week,he is still a captive-BUT-he has been "demoted" to step-son. Hawk (That's actually his name !) is taken into the mountains of New Hampshire by his Satan-worshipping captors.His captors reveal to him the fact his mother is pregnant (Funny: I didn't even know she was off the pill ! Oh,well.) The captors tell Hawk he is free to...

From USNews.Com's Washington Whispers: Hillary's in… You don't have to take it from us about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton 's desire to run for president. Her brothers, Hugh and Tony Rodham, say it's true. Friends...
