Debka is reporting today that the UK has now frozen the assets of the terrorist group that beheaded British hostage Kenneth Bigley. Only after Bigley was killed were the assets frozen?!

So much for not negotiating with terrorists.

Who Knew? 

IMDB.com is reporting that Richard Linklater, Austinite and director of such works as Slacker and School of Rock, is being sued by three of his former classmates for his use of their surnames in the 1993 cult classic Dazed & Confused.

According to the report "...after enduring jokes over characters based on them in Dazed & Confsused, Richard Floyd, Andy Slater and Bobby Wooderson claim Linklater never asked them if he could use their surnames for characters in the cult film. The men say they have been viewed in a different light by neighbors and friends ever since the 1993 movie, about a group of alcohol and drug-consuming students on the last day of school in 1976, was released. Slater's lawyer Ernest Freeman says people assume his client takes illegal narcotics because of the marijuana and Lsd-loving character, played by Rory Cochrane, in Dazed and Confused. And Floyd, who now works at a car showroom in Huntsville, Texas, says, "We had fun in high school, but there is nothing true about that movie. Yet I am having to deal with it all the time."

I smell a statute of limitations problem here, but I could be wrong.
