URBAN LEGEND UPDATE OF THE DAY: Remember that anti-pollution PSA with the crying Indian? Despite his claims to the contrary, the actor in the spot wasn't a Native American but Italian. I have long heard that this was the case. Now that Barbara "going native" Mikkelson has spoken, it must be so!

KOREAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION NEWS: Roh Moo-hyun and Chung Mong-joon agree to join forces and field a single-candidate against front-runner Lee Hoi-chang. Or did they? Judge for yourself:

He continued the preliminary talks favored a primary race, a method the MDP adopted to select Roh Mu-hyun its official candidate early this year.
