PROJECT GREENBACK Obama
• Hollywood ending?: Quitter Barack Obama was feted at a glitzy Hollywood fundraiser last night, where he hoped to walk away with a cool million in his pocket—and a deal to play himself in a TV movie.
• "Michael Jackson killed my mother": The gloved one is being sued yet again—this time by the family of a woman who died two years ago when she was moved out of her hospital room to make way for an icky-feeling Jacko.
• Paging Dr. Gore: Oscar shoe-in Al Gore may be able to add another notch to his vegan leather belt (inventor of Internet, 2000 presidential election winner, supporter of lockboxes). The University of Minnesota is considering awarding him an honorary doctorate.
