Read this: J. Paul Getty III, rich people's guns, Rumsfeld books reviewed, "Spider-Man" panned

Sad obituary of the day: J. Paul Getty III, the "golden hippie" oil heir who was kidnapped at age 16 by Italian thugs who cut off his ear -- and from there things just got worse. Even after his release. He's dead now, at age 54, after spending the past three decades suffering the effects of a drug-induced stroke. Rich does not equal happy.

Speaking of which, guess who's registering all the guns in D.C. these days? Rich people.

Gwen Ifill reviews Donald Rumsfeld's new book, "at its heart... a revenge memoir," with sharp jabs at Colin Powell, Condi Rice and Bush 41. Also, a review of a bizarre new novel that imagines Rummy forced to undergo harsh interrogation tactics, as they say.

Peter Marks gleefully dismembers "Spider-Man,"
the musical: "A tangle of disjointed concepts... its more appropriate home would be off a highway in Orlando... loud and pulsing and devoid of personality."
