As if I didn't have enough to worry about with final exams, now I have to think about the bird flu, hurricanes, gas prices, drought and Ricki Lake's comeback.

Now for some good news:

  • An avian flu outbreak should not be as disastrous as dramatized on that ABC movie.

  • Weinstein is making a Knight Rider movie.

  • A new edition of the Napoleon Dynamite DVD is out.

  • The "Facts of Life" sitcom (seasons one and two) is now on DVD.

  • Watching the hijinks of Tootie, Natalie, Blair and Jo will wash away all your worries!
