Here we are at a Russellville, Ky. festival, reenacting the stickup of the old Southern Bank by Jesse James. Out of the bank dashes John Hite Jr. with the pretend loot. And up on his horse to wheel and make the getaway. Whereupon the horse slips and stumbles against a parked car, denting the fender. It turns out to be a state police car.
Thanks, John. And, listen, about next year's festival. Don't call us. We'll call you.
Young Chris Holloway is built along the lines of Mr. Peepers, but he can get about as angry as anybody. So when his car collided with another in London, out popped Chris to confront the other driver. "I hit him twice in the face," said Chris, "but it didn't seem to have any effect on him." Then the other driver popped Chris with a short punch, enough to put Holloway into the hospital with a broken jaw. In court former world middleweight champion Terry Downes explained that he had hit Chris "with my right, which is my bad side, actually." The decision: Downes was acquitted when experts testified that if he had really wanted to hurt Holloway he would have used his left.

"Fish provide me with sport, and I don't see any sense in letting them die," announced one Nancy Guerra of Brooklyn. And that's why Nancy brought her entry for a striper derby alive and happy in a water-filled plastic bag. After it had been officially weighed in Nancy took the bass off to release it in Sheepshead Bay. As things turned out, the fish, at 27� pounds, was not a winner anyway. Not of the contest, that is.
