BEVERLY HILLS - God bless America, and how's everybody?

New York City police reported Monday that three customers in a Queens grocery store bought peppers with bags of cocaine in them. It caused a lot of fuss.

The Titanic Memorial Cruise was scheduled Friday to sail from England for New York three years from now, on the one hundredth anniversary of the ill-fated voyage.
