On Monday, a remote-controlled Predator spy plane operated by C-I-A personnel fired a pair of missiles at a group of men gathered near a truck including a man loosely fitting the description of Osama Bin Laden.
The attack took place in area where al-Qaida members have been spotted in the past.
A special forces team is now on the ground to determine exactly who was killed. And as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff delicately put it --the team has to look for body parts.

The bad news came to some factory workers in Danville as Goodyear announced more layoffs.

Health officials say two people in Bedford County have contracted whooping cough... a highly contagious disease that's spread through sneezing and coughing.
The first case involves a 13- year old boy--the other a 77-year old woman.
They both had a connection to a small private school.

The symptoms start out like a cold with a runny nose, fever and a persistent cough that can last for weeks. [Take Pinnacle Page Two]
While it can be treated with antibiotics and bed rest, Whooping Cough can have some serious complications including pneumonia and emphysema.
In very serious cases, it can lead to death.

[SUPER=04-"Big Fat Liar"- Universal]


(("Big Fat Liar" Universal
What makes "Big Fat Liar" work is that its young stars, Frankie Muniz and Amanda Bynes are so appealing. If their characters were the least bit snide or mean, it would not be such a charming little movie. Muniz is Jason Shepard, a smart kid who would rather make up elaborate stories about why he doesn't have his homework than actually do it. His teacher threatens him with summer school if he doesn't come up with a short story by 6pm and he does write one, a story called "Big Fat Liar". On his way to deliver the story he is hit by a limosine owned by Marty Wolf, an arrogant Hollywood producer with a string of loser movies on his record. Jason accidentally leaves his story in the limo, and no one believes he really wrote one. Later on, at the movies, Jason and his friend Kaylee
(Amanda Bynes) see trailers for a new movie from Marty

Wolf studios coming out that summer-called "Big Fat Liar", with the same plot as Jason's story. Of course no one believes Jason when he insists Wolf stole his story, and in order to prove to his father he wasn't lying for once, Jason and Kaylee take off for Hollywood to make Marty Wolf tell the truth. Wolf refuses, and taunts Jason, so Jason and Kaylee set up elaborate pranks to try and force Wolf to admit the story is Jason's. The movie is far fetched and events a little too convenient, but most can identify with Jason's attempts to get revenge for Wolf's high handed
treatment; and the location---Universal's back lot

with all of its movie sets, costumes and props, makes a fun playground for all of these antics. In the words of young Garrett, 7 years old, who was sitting behind me, the movie was "great". Adults who accompany their kids to "Big Fat Liar" will enjoy it, too. It will appeal to fans of "Spy Kids". Grade B. Rated PG. ))
