The Phoenix Suns changed their team's name to Los Suns for Wednesday's playoff game to protest Arizona's immigration law. It's just a token gesture. If they had really meant it they would have said no ticket is necessary for entrance to the arena.

A Bay Area principal sent several boys home from school for wearing red, white and blue shirts to class on Cinco de Mayo. Those are the colors of the U.S. flag, the British flag and Confederate flag. It's still not clear which one got them in trouble.

"Inside Edition" went into Faisal Shahzad's apartment after the FBI left. The show business reporters found Shahzad's passport, which the FBI missed. It just shows that celebrities face tougher scrutiny every day than the Taliban does.
