Shaken Not Stirred: "The Guinness Book of Films says the best line ever
heard in a movie theater is 'Bond...James Bond.' The second-best line:
Tonight's showing of 'The Avengers' has been canceled." (Zack Taylor -
Westwood One Radio Network)

Uma-Oprah: "If the Department of Justice succeeds with Microsoft, they will
reportedly go on to break up Oprah Winfrey. (Feldman)

The Unabrother: The Unabomber's brother is trying to persuade the government
not to impose taxes on his $1-million reward for turning in his sibling so
more money can go to the victims.  "However, the IRS seems confused about
the issues.  It's insisting that taxes must always be paid when you break
a family trust." (Sostrin)

Wish-Seekers: Richard Simmons is returning to TV next fall in a show called
"Dream Maker," where contestants will see their fondest wishes come true.
"Richard could make a lot of fond wishes come true if he'd just put on a
shirt and a pair of pants." (Ira Lawson)

Falling Stars: According to Parade magazine, there are no new actors in the
action-adventure genre as studios scramble to find suitable scripts for
Arnold Schwarzenegger, 51; Sylvester Stallone, 52; and Mel Gibson, 42.
"Their best hope seems to be a script now in development at Universal called
'Grumpy Old Action Heroes.'" (Bob Mills)
