DURST: On a Roll

* Since J. Edgar Hoover created the FBI's Most Wanted List, 422 of the 449 fugitives on the list have been captured. The others have either died or are thought to have become local Republican Party Chairmen. * A lot of NFL rookies are trying to adjust to receiving huge checks for playing ball. In college, they were used to cash.* Sylvester Stallone has agreed to star in Rambo IV, but he wants to see the script first. Right, Mr. "Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot" is worried about scripts. * Art curators believe 100 Van Goghs sold over the years have been fakes. One way to tell; if the "I" in "Vincent" is dotted with a heart. * Danish researchers have concluded that men have 4 billion more brain cells than women. I wonder how many of the researchers were married men. * Barry Manilow settled out of court with a man who claims his hearing was damaged at a concert. If he attended the concert on his own volition how good could his hearing have been in the first place?* It seems the Yankees new pitcher, Hideki Irabu is having communications problems with his teammates so he's taking Spanish lessons.Will Durst is really looking forward to going home to his blessed fog.
