Hawke in US today
“Prime Minister Bob Hawke arrives in Washington today to push the Bush Administration into declaring Antarctica a wilderness park. He is hoping to have more success with President George Bush than he had with British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who last week rejected the idea. The political mood in the US towards the environment has been heightened by the recent disastrous Exxon oil spill in Alaska.”

Fenech comeback in his hands
“World featherweight champion Jeff Fenech said yesterday he may end his short retirement if doctors can repair his damaged hands. Fenech, 25, said he had been offered $6 million for three bouts by a group of Sydney businessmen. The “Marrickville Mauler” retired from boxing on April 8 after retaining the WBC featherweight title with a pair of badly damaged hands against Marcos Villasana.”

The obligatory hint of smut
Fletch lives – barely, but there are some signs of life. This latest starring vehicle for Chevy Chase is just that, a star vehicle, and not much more. The formula is obvious, the jokes are predictable, the hint of smut obligatory. However, if you’ve enjoyed Chase’s laidback, almost quiet style and ingenious disguises in the past – and don’t mind overlooking a college jock/one-dimensional approach- you should enjoy this.”
