Falling: Sweepstakes Losers The folks on the Prize Patrol had better get used to lugging those giant checks around. Publishers Clearing House has agreed to pay $18.48 million to 24 states to settle the unfair business practices and misleading advertising class action suit that was brought against them last January. A lot of that money will be returned to the old folks who bought the most subscriptions with the company over the years. As for the rest of us, we can be glad that the company is finally being punished for making us lick all those darn stamps and sit through Ed McMahon’s commercials. Falling: Premonitions From the Associated Press: Owners of three shops say they were blindsided when undercover police stormed in to see if anyone was engaged in fortune telling, clairvoyance or palmistry. Maybe they should have seen it coming. Falling: Air Safety Someone must be comforted by the NTSB’s “determination” — after four years of investigation — that TWA Flight 800′s fatal explosion was caused by a “short circuit” and not terrorists timing the disaster for the ’96 Atlanta Olympic games. What a relief that the fireball was caused by a mere mechanical failure, and not a subversive plot. But we’d feel even better if we knew the guerrilla war being waged at United Airlines was over. Which is more dangerous, mechanics forced to work overtime or political extremists?
