As mentioned in yesterday's column , Daniel Bryan's rehab wasn't going as well as hoped.  On Monday's RAW, that was made official when the Authority vacated the title and announced it would be put on the line in a seven-man ladder match. They announced the first two participants of the match quickly, saying Alberto Del Rio earned his shot last week, and also put Randy Orton into the match.  Later in the night, Sheamus and Cesaro also earned their shots in qualifying matches.  You can read about my early thoughts on who should win the match in yesterday's column, but there are two questions that remain after RAW. The first is who will the three remaining competitors be?

There isn't much about the problems created by the brand split, or lack thereof, that hasn't been said. But as preparing for Sunday's Hell in a Cell, there have been a lot of theories floating around, and one of the prevalent ones has left me shaking my head. It doesn't directly relate to tonight's Smackdown, but it highlights one of the problems of the not-really-split split brands. Dolph Ziggler's Money in the Bank contract allows him a World Heavyweight Championship match at the time of his choosing.

Name: : E-sling by Case Logic What it is: : A messenger-type polyester shoulder bag designed to hold personal electronics and other items. How it works: : The largest of three versions works wonderfully whether carrying gear on a trip or back and forth to work. It has two main zippered compartments with smaller storage areas within and two large pockets front and back. One large compartment is padded for a mini-laptop. The other compartment is big enough for other gadgets and more. I variously carried a hardcover book, newspapers, magazines, an umbrella and a jacket in addition to a BlackBerry, MP3 player and glasses case.

Once, when I was teaching a university composition class, I flew back from New York for class and neglected to get back on Central Standard Time. I came bustling into the classroom and walked to the front, took off my coat, set my briefcase on the table, smiled at the students assembled, and was about to open my mouth and start talking about the importance of structure in comic writing, and then something struck me as Not Right. Familiar faces were missing. I leaned down and said to a girl in the front row, "This isn't composition, is it."

Moore, missing for more than a half-century, has been found in an abandoned Brevard County, Fla., barn and will be returned tomorrow to the slain civil rights leader's daughter. The leather case, filled with newspaper clippings and letters urging officials to investigate the mistreatment of blacks, was discovered about a half-mile from where a bomb destroyed the family's home on Christmas night 1951, killing Moore and his wife, Harriette. A member of the North Brevard Historical Society, scouring the area for artifacts a few months ago, stumbled onto the satchel, which should have been stored in a property room at the county courthouse.

ANNAPOLIS - Del. Adrienne Jones, lugging a bulging briefcase, heads for the door with a guy trying to cut her off. She won't make it, not with that briefcase slowing her down. She's trying to vacate the premises after yesterday's first session of the Special Committee on State Employee Rights and Protections. They're the legislators trying to find whether the Ehrlich administration has been taking away people's state jobs just because they have the wrong political leanings. "Are you getting much feedback from people who think they've been violated?"

SafeNet Inc. is one of the world's top information security companies, supplying encryption technologies to protect communications, patents and other sensitive data for corporations and government agencies. But as the Belcamp company has learned the hard way, there's no way to encrypt paper with the wrong kind of information printed on it. An employee hoping to get extra work done over the weekend printed out 2004 payroll information for hundreds of Safenet's U.S. employees, snapped it into a briefcase and placed the briefcase in a car. The car was broken into over the weekend and the briefcase stolen - along with the employees' names, bank account numbers and Social Security numbers that were on the printouts, a company spokeswoman confirmed yesterday.
