St. Petersburg, Florida:
A Florida woman is offering to sell one of her kidneys
to pay off a hospital debt.
Ruth Sparrow ran an ad over the weekend in The
St. Petersburg Times. It read: "KIDNEY - Runs good. Taking offers."
Sparrow is serious. She owes $20,000 for gall bladder surgery,
and wants to pay it off.
She says both her kidneys work fine and she's willing to part
with one to settle her debt. She offered one directly to Bayfront
Medical Center, which turned it down.
The newspaper has stopped running the ad, since selling organs
is illegal in Florida
Our correspondent in Poland reports that Wojciech Jaruzelski,
Tadeusz Mazowiecki and Lech Walesa met in a summit conference,
and the only thing that they could agree on was that George
Bush has a funny name.
From the SF Chronicle, Herb Caen's column
An Issaquah, Washington man apparently became frustrated with
his personal computer, pulled out a gun and shot it. The computer,
located in the man's home office, had four bullets holes in its
hard drive and one in the monitor. Police evacuated the man's
townhouse complex, contacted the irate PC owner by phone, and
persuaded him to come out. "We don't know if it wouldn't boot up
or what," says one of the police officers at the scene.
