Jordan's wife, Juanita, filed a petition for divorce Friday in Lake County, Ill., Circuit Court to end their 12-year marriage. She cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for wanting the split. In a business in which image counts for everything, Jordan is popular enough to ride out the negative publicity that may be associated with a divorce, marketers said.

THE tobacco companies say no. They won't agree to the new bill now moving through Congress that will require the industry to pay $506 billion over 25 years. It's too much, they say. And, besides, the bill won't give them immunity from lawsuits claiming damages to health. They'd rather fight than switch to bankruptcy.Congress and the president can still enact the law, of course. But if the tobacco companies choose to fight it, the law could be tied up in the courts for years. That's big tobacco's big threat.
