Thanks to Cathy Hamerschlag Black, John H. Harris, Meredith Daniels, Sol Auerbach, Michael Spasium, David Winzelberg, Kathryn Pease, Brian Mumpower and a bunch of other twisted people with far too much time on their hands. I'm smart.

ASKED AND UNANSWERED: "Serial Killer on Long Island" - what's a creepier headline than that? . . . Was Ed Mangano already in the mood to cut $23 million? Or did the imminent arrival of the state monitoring board sharpen the Nassau exec's budget ax? . . . What superhero powers will it take to save Broadway's "Spider-Man" in time for its quadrupley-delayed Opening Night? Clearly, that whole Spidey-web thing isn't enough . . . Cops say the North Hempstead home invader could be getting bolder? As if he's been bashful up 'til now? . . . How much worse do those counterfeit guitar strings really sound? A lot worse, say the China-mad employees at D'Addario & Co. in Farmingdale . . . Is it possible the fight over who's in the State Senate might go past the end of the State Senate term? Craig Johnson's doing his drag-it-out best . . . Have you heard Peconic Radio at 88.1 FM? Don't worry, you will . . . Fire-election winners promise fiscal controls? And that makes them different from all the previous winners - exactly how? . . . Too dumb even for me: WikiDon'tLoseThatNumber: Cell phone directory. Winzelberg, you know who you are!
