 The Rock was abuzz last weekend - receptions to pre-parties and anniversaries. Here is your daily dose of EXTRA!


1. Poisoned by jet fuel fumes! Some airline workers have made a convincing case and have received settlement for fuel poisoning. But how toxic is aviation fuel? That is the question being asked by many persons these days. The answer is of importance not just to the airline workers, but to passengers, too. We are watching this one carefully.

2. Newsmongers should keep their ears open over the next few weeks for there is every indication that interesting, record-breaking news is about to come out of the Turks and Caicos Islands, and it has nothing to do with Ponzi schemes.

3. The doctor's burden of saddling not one, but two, and possibly three 'jackets' has drawn deep sympathy from his colleagues. Some are wondering how he will take the news when what is done in darkness comes to light. He, being a devout Christian gentleman, will certainly be guided by the teachings of the good book.

4. Then there is the other doctor who is at her wit's end on how to deal with a cheating "wutless" husband who has drained her bank account to entertain and impress his many lady friends. Like many others before, she fears the public ridicule which comes with taking action. Not to worry, Doc, everyone knows you are suffering, so it's time to take action.
