LATE BLOOMER Mayor Mike
• Independent's day: New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's party conversion (and likely presidential bid) is the result of two years' worth of studies and research. The announcement has other candidates soiling themselves.
• Screaming neighbors: Horror filmmaker Wes Craven sues horrible actor Pauly Shore for letting water seep onto his property and being a has-been.
• Price is heavy: If CBS can't land Rosie O'Donnell for the Price is Right, they may go with another annoying fat person: Drew Carey.
