•••\ \ Our boyz in the Duke lacrosse team rape foible have filed a massive federal lawsuit against that runaway prosecutor Mike Nifong, the city of Durham, N.C., and the three polices detectives who handled the case — Larry, Moe and Curly Joe. We hope they get a wad of dough.\ \
•••\ \ Lindsay Lohan is out of rehab. Please consider this your warning.\ \
•••\ \ We suspect that passive-aggressive moment Hillary had in Iowa this weekend with the dude who questioned her war stance may be closer to the real person she is than most of the public is seeing on the campaign trail. It’s probably getting harder and harder for her to suppress — given that she’s the frontrunner and bringing in all that money — and it could be her one real weakness if it keeps being exposed in a public forum. All we’re sayin … is she probably should fear YouTube. That footage of her all angry and defensive could end up in an Obama ad.\ \
•••\ \ What about the Rhode Island artist who built an apartment in the mall parking lot and lived there for four years? That is the definition of crafty and also our dream living situation, providing it was a quality mall. Proximity to high-quality retail moves us.\ \
•••\ \ We were watching video of Clarence Thomas’ book party on C-SPAN and we were struck by the justice’s interest in everyone he spoke with. Rather than accept accolades, he focused on that person’s interests, the details of their lives, and he did so with great humor. He seems shockingly likeable and not at all what we expected. His wife seemed normal, too. Who knew?\ \
•••\ \ The leaves are falling, the pumpkins are aplenty. We love fall. It’s the prettiest season ever. We are not eager, however, to fall back into daylight savings time. We hate the early evening darkness. AS IF\ \
•••\ \ O.J. Simpson’s surrendered Rolex was a FAKE. We wonder if his Louis Vuitton weekender bag is also a knockoff. He probably bought it on Ebay. Snip, snip.\ \ \ — Andrea Billups, Washington Times
