Hilary Swank has Sandra Bullock and Ashley Judd to thank for her Best Actress Oscar for Million Dollar Baby, reports the New York Post -- because the role was refused by both actresses. Producer Albert S. Ruddy's first choice for the part of a tragic female boxer was Bullock, who turned down the part when she was told she could not pick the director. Ruddy next approached Judd, whose salary demands would have busted the budget. After Ruddy finally settled on Swank, Bullock's agent called him and said she would do the picture after all, but "Al just said, `Too late,'" says a source.

Kennedy Jr."He had a legacy, and he learned to treasure it. He was part of a legend, and he learned to live with it," Sen. Edward M. Kennedy said in a eulogy before about 315 mourners ranging from President Clinton to Muhammad Ali. "He had amazing grace."

"HE WHOM the gods favor dies in youth," wrote the Roman poet Plautus, to whom almost everything was a coarse joke.Not a new idea then, it unhappily never runs out of the need to be expressed anew.The premature, unexpected, inexplicable loss of three talented young people is always a tragedy -- especially when it happens before they could make the contributions their lives had promised.The nation's sympathy goes out to the families of John F. Kennedy Jr., Carolyn Bessette Kennedy and Lauren Bessette, all blessed with talent, all in their 30s.Perishing with such notoriety makes these three into important symbols for the uncelebrated others who may have been equally blessed with promise and who may have died of equal quirk -- acts of God or human failing, tricks of fate or betrayals of destiny.

Everyone seemed to be following the story of the search for the small plane. For television news, it was essentially the only story for two days.
