SPECIAL DELIVERY Guy and Madonna
• Banda on the run: David Banda, the one-year-old Malawian child reportedly adopted by Madonna and Guy Ritchie, is on his way to London. Madonna's publicist, who kept the adoption story in play by first categorically denying it was true said with a straight face: "She's going to do her best to not make it a public circus."
• Code Scottish Red: Two terrorists escape and are now missing. One is "accused of wanting to go to Iraq to fight." As Reuters reports, he "had been missing for two weeks after escaping from a London mental health unit." But will they be caught before the two brothers on Prison Break?
• The Scorecard, Part II: Roman Abramovich, the yacht-jockeying oligarch who owns Chelsea football, might have bedded the most expensive mistress in history. His wife, a piss-poor former waitress and stewardess with Soviet-run Airloft airlines when Abramovich met her, is taking him to the cleaners after his alleged affair with a Russian model—she's divorcing him for half of his fortune, estimated at $17.5 billion.
• Lynne's law: Civil rights attorney and grandmother Lynne Stewart beat breast cancer just in time to start a 28-month prison sentence for her role helping imprisoned terrorist Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman communicate with the Islamic Group, which the U.S. classifies as a terrorist organization.
