"Demi Moore's new movie about the first woman in the elite Navy
Seals still has no name," says Alex Kaseberg. "They decided not
to go with the title chosen by a test marketing group --
'Straight to Video.'"
St. Petersburg, Florida:
A Florida woman is offering to sell one of her kidneys
to pay off a hospital debt.
Ruth Sparrow ran an ad over the weekend in The
St. Petersburg Times. It read: "KIDNEY - Runs good. Taking offers."
Sparrow is serious. She owes $20,000 for gall bladder surgery,
and wants to pay it off.
She says both her kidneys work fine and she's willing to part
with one to settle her debt. She offered one directly to Bayfront
Medical Center, which turned it down.
The newspaper has stopped running the ad, since selling organs
is illegal in Florida

.38 Special, which discharged when he drew it to his ear.
