"We've never had this number of calls, even when Lucille Ball was here, Kirk Douglas or George Burns," said Paula Correia, spokeswoman for Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. "Never anything like this, ever."One person who visited the dying man said: "It's a real shame. I went to the hospital and saw him, but he was unconscious. He didn't even know I was in the room. It wasn't a pretty sight, man. It was sad . . . I think it's terrible that this happened.

And they celebrated a 60th birthday that some called "a miracle."

"To live fast and die young" is often cited as the ultimate hard-guy credo, but it would be hard to imagine the tough who'd want to die young the way Eazy-E did.Born Eric Wright 31 years ago, the gangsta rap star died of AIDS on Sunday, four weeks after checking into the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles with what he assumed to be asthma. He left a wife, six children and a lot of questions.To say that his sudden death was a shock to the hip-hop community would be an understatement.

Even if life is cheap in the City of God housing project outside Rio de Janeiro, it should exact more empathy than it does in City of God, a razzle-dazzle lower-depths melodrama. The movie's skill is stupefying in more ways than one. As the breakthrough feature from TV-commercial whiz Fernando Meirelles, it's an amazingly ambitious and assured urban spectacle, skipping through decades of gangland mayhem and related catastrophes without missing a narrative beat. As a statement on the debasement of everyday existence, starting with childhood and increasing with each generation, this movie drains you of feeling and puts nothing in its place.

He hoped only to keep from falling.Without warning, Minor took the position that had belonged exclusively to Cal Ripken for the past two seasons, ending a consecutive-games streak that stretched to eternity.

Why does the water heater in my new house have another small tank hanging off the side of the pipe above it? That is an expansion tank installed on the water supply pipe to the water heater. Its purpose is to deal with thermal expansion of water as it heats up in the water heater - to prevent water pressure from getting too high. If water pressure gets high enough it can damage valves in plumbing fixtures, joints in supply pipes and even the water heater. Thermal expansion always occurs in water heaters.

WHAT DOES it mean when you hear that a dear friend has had a heart attack and is in the hospital in critical condition? Just how bad is critical? You might call the hospital the next day and be told his condition is stable. Does that mean he is out of danger now?Perhaps you read about an accident on I-95 in which three local teen-agers are hurt. The paper says one of the passengers was hospitalized in critical condition. The next day you read that the teen's condition is guarded. Does that mean he is getting better or worse?
