Tuesday afternoon potpourri in a wicker basket

  • Sanjaya Warhol... now he's saying his name is really Bill Vendall and he's an art student at the Rhode Island school of design, and the whole American Idol thing was a hoax; "The Sanjaya character was part of a larger art installation."

  • British prosecutors will charge ex-KGB agent Andrei Lugovoy with the murder of former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko, who died in London last year after being poisoned with radioactive polonium.
