Rising: Bullets The gun industry won the latest round in the litigation between it and more than two dozen cities across the country. An Ohio Court of Appeals panel dismissed Cincinnati’s suit against gun makers and firearms associations for reimbursement for police, medical and other municipal services provided as a result of negligence in the safety features of guns. Safety features of guns? The best safety feature for guns is an incinerator. Falling: Supreme Appetites A confrontation between California and the federal government escalating since the state legalized medicinal marijuana in 1996 came to a head when the feds brought in the special forces this week. The Supreme Court, called into a “special session” at the request of the Clinton Administration, issued a temporary injunction barring the state from distributing marijuana for any use. It’s amazing that the but-I-didn’t-inhale Clinton Administration would be this zealous on the issue. Rising: Old Survivors After years of existing on the fringes of popular culture, you’d think the band Survivor would be happy to its name mentioned as more than a semi-forgotten relic from 1982 — but nooooo. Founder and lead guitarist Franklin Sullivan, who trademarked the name Survivor in 1977 for the band, will ask a federal court in Chicago for a preliminary injunction against CBS to prevent “Survivor” from being used on a soundtrack album from the hit TV series. Will Sullivan succeed? Who knows — the naked guy might have won the $1 million, but the band behind “Eye of the Tiger” may claim the prize this time.
