Hutcherson's lawyers made short work of
putting on evidence in his defense.

They presented half a dozen witnesses,
ranging from Hutcherson's daughter to a
technical expert in the Social Security
Administration. The defense rested its
case before lunch.

In closing arguments, Hutcherson's
lawyer described the Mayor as the "guy
who always answers the bell," a man who
tried to help people, a financially
weak person with an important title.

welcome to the Tuesday ticker.

If you were with us last night on

*CG locator Last Season

The Dolphins are holding their
first mini-camp this weekend and Vick
has reportedly been invited to show up,
show the coaches what he can do and
attempt to earn a free agent contract.

Vick was not drafted over the
weekend, and so far not a single team
has been willing to offer him a free
agent contract.

It's unclear whether Miami wants
to look at Vick as a quarterback,
receiver or kick returner, but they
currently have a mess at quarterback.

They recently aquired Daunte
Culpepper, but he's still rehabbing a
knee that had to be completely
reconstructed. The only other
quarterbacks on the roster are former
Miami star Brock Berlin and former
Arkansas State star Cleo Lemon.

If none of this works out for
Vick - he may have to try to Canadian
Football League or the Arena League.

CHARLIE: IT DOESN'T BOTHER YOU TO

HUG? WOMAN: NO! I'LL GIVE YOU ANOTHER
ONE!



It's not always easy... but the Gao
brothers say even the most unlikely

of huggers



NAT POP - BOBBI - IF YOU GAVE ME A HUG
NOW, WHAT DO YOU THINK WOULD

HAPPEN?



...eventually --- give in.





NAT POP - BOBBI - YOU WANT TO GIVE ME A
HUG, ALRIGHT (hugs gao brother)




So go on and do like the Gao's. Hug a
stranger today -- just tell 'em

it's a work of art.

*CG locator Honolulu, HI

May Day is also "Lei Day" in Hawaii.

Yesterday, the Radisson Hotel
competed for the world's longest lei
record.

610- leis were strung together and
draped over the hotel's property.

Nearly 93- thousand flower blossoms
were used- and the lei measured more

than 27- hundred feet long.

Thousands of "Aloha" messages were
entwined in the lei.

Some of them were from children in
New York, who go to school near Ground
Zero.

As for the record attempt, we're
still waiting to hear if the hotel made
history.
