Gone Already: Stanley S. Newberg fled persecution as a Jew and came to America. He did well: when he died at age 81, his estate was valued at $8.4 million. He was also grateful to the country that took him in: his will left $5.6 million in cash to the U.S. Government. Based on 1994 spending rates, the money will last just under two minutes. (AP) ...And we thank you for the six wrenches and four vinyl binders from the bottom of our hearts.

I Thought They Just Tossed Pea Soup: Anthony Dearinger, a preacher at the Independent Baptist Church in Hillsboro, Ill., demonstrated how God will pitch the Devil into hell on Judgment Day by picking up a 12-year-old boy from the pews where he was sitting with his parents and throwing him six feet. Dearinger was convicted of child endangerment. (AP) ...Good thing the sermon wasn't about crucifixion.

This is True is a weekly syndicated newspaper column by Colorado humorist Randy Cassingham. True is a commentary on the news, and reports on bizarre-but-true news items from "legitimate" printed news sources from around the world. Each story is punctuated with commentary by Randy -- a tagline which is humorous, ironic or opinionated -- with luck, some combination, or even all three. It has been publishing weekly since June, 1994, and currently runs in print in three countries, as well as by e-mail subscription to a huge audience on the Internet.
