And this week's astronaut love triangle, however tragic, has been a predictable bonanza. But humor, as always, is in the eye of the writer: Some headlines (from bestfrontdesign.com): Daily News (New York): "Dark side of the loon" Beaver County (Pa.) Times: "Astronut?"

MONACA, Pa. - A bright yellow billboard calls out to passers-by - "Hepatitis Claims?" - and displays a law firm's name and phone number along Route 60, just south of this western Pennsylvania town. A few months ago, the nation's worst outbreak of hepatitis A killed three people and sickened 660 others in the vicinity of this town near Pittsburgh. More than 9,000 frightened people flocked to hospitals for tests and inoculations. When the illness was traced to a Chi-Chi's here, the restaurant voluntarily closed its doors Nov. 2. The source turned out to be tainted green onions from Mexico, not poor health practices at the restaurant.

Mention the name Cal Ripken Jr., and one image immediately comes to mind: the victory lap around Camden Yards on Sept. 6, 1995, when he surpassed Lou Gehrig as baseball's all-time iron man and helped bring baseball back into American homes. Ripken eventually played 2,632 consecutive games before ending The Streak in September 1998. He lasted three more seasons, compiled 3,184 total hits, 431 homers, 1,695 RBIs, won two Most Valuable Player awards and was named to the All-Star Game 19 times.
