Sen. Harry Reid's office was temporarily shut down Wednesday by a suspicious letter from ..... C. Everett Koop? The former surgeon general sent the majority leader his thoughts on health care, but since it arrived stampless (no return address, just "C. Everett Koop") a clerk called Capitol Police. "I wasn't aware that sending a hand-delivered letter was an offense," Koop told Roll Call after the all-clear. "I don't have a lot of secretarial help and I'm 93."
Carrie Prejean and the Miss California USA folks have settled the issues that landed them in court, both sides announced late Tuesday. (To recap: They de-crowned her, claiming she missed events; she sued for libel and religious discrimination; they countersued, asking for the cost of her breast implants back.)
