Company executives were met by
about 40 people whose lives have been

These are the faces of pain...

family of those who died of OxyContin
overdoses.

They came in response to Judge
Jim Jones' almost un-heard of call for
public input on the benefits, abuse and
mis-use of the drug.

The hearing was scheduled after
Judge Jones challenged the validity of
the plea agreement.

In the end he imposed the fine
called for in an earlier deal:
634-and-a -half-million dollars.

of Animals organized this formal
protest outside of the NFL offices in

Manhattan in an effort to get Vick
sacked before training camp opens.

BITE OF GUY

Unlike Pac Man Jones and Tank
Johnson - Vick is not a repeat offender
- but while Jones and Johnson were
involved with guns and strippers -
Vick's crime is allegedly against
animals - defenseless dogs - something
that even the harshest critics of PETA
can't argue with.

Sharpton have both come out in support
of PETA in this instance and the Vick
situation has already hit the U.S.
Senate floor.

Yesterday senior senator Robert
Byrd from West Virginia delivered a 24
minute speech concerning the abuse of
canines, and today Senator John Kerry
called for Vick's immediate suspension.

There also has been talk today
that the Falcons could ask Vick to take
a paid leave of absence.

Commonwealth Games Tonight the athletes took part in :00 what has become an elaborate opening
ceremony celebration.

After marching into the Roanoke
Civic Center with their respective
teams and sports - the athletes
literally got to see a little bit of
everything including Subway spokesman
Jared Fogle, who showed off the massive
blue jeans he wore when he weighed 425
pounds. Still at 190 - Jared was
pushing the active lifestyle and
commending the athletes for staying

fit.

But Jared couldn't touch this -
an appearance by the Village People.
Actually, it's just a Village person in
the middle with an all-too real
collection of puppets attached to his
body.
