Rejoice over echo. Denial
that he had lied. Giant in
a flap. Requiring a slap. Found

at flagship shop. Failures to hit
home. Errors of style but not
content. Content to slide. Intelligent substance

raises issues. Misses out
on second
helping. Is poised to sign

a new deal. A big deal. Verdict
on lead.

Friday, July 30, 2004

'A better and a safer
place.' 'I hate inside.' Collective
backbone. Follow the original

design. To the letter. To the
letter-bomb. Sun-lovers offered
tan. 'Must we call anarchy

freedom?' 'I will break
my silence.' Critics prepare a
key debate, hamstrung

by support.

Thursday, July 29, 2004

Goddess faces prison. Lifted via a disc
of plastic. Transatlantic
call. Legality

open to question. Need to spin. Missed
star emerges from hiding,
blinking. Sun found

on beach. Explosions of stuff. Tycoon
baulks at fee. Or barks. Falls out
with interviewer at any rate. You

don't have to. Nanotech
food forms army. History
goes on show.

Monday, July 26, 2004

'They will hang on to
their keys.' Off
the run. A peripatetic

existence in anonymous
hotels. Reveled in its
anonymity. Against his old

foe. 'Trading with the
enemy.' He spat on it. He
even missed. Alleged willingness

to trade. In circles. In
the cold. Normal and
businesslike. Normal rules

apply. Applaud the act.

Nice shirt sir. Fire
sweeps unsupervised. Retrial
ordered. Cartoon twists

and turns. Badly Drawn
Boys. Music to kill

shop. Big sand structure
endgame. Secret film
exposed. Echo his sympathy

for the fallen

Saturday, July 24, 2004

Dissects reform, rejects
sense. Flag down trousers. Water
in meat. 'Did not see role as

'bringing down' the
multitude.' Man in hot
water. Quits over plans

to streamline. Save nature - don't
golf. Disembodied hand. 'Gentlemanly'
rebuke. Death

no bar.

Friday, July 23, 2004

Music-damning multi-
tasking renegade
puritan. Witness knew

dossier was dangerous - did
not tell. Authentic colours
gain stature: what the past

did for us. Life expectancy
redundant. Ends his presidential
style and says


Thursday, July 22, 2004

Tod a popular
name. Par for the
course. Another surprise

winner. Attacks
mount up. New
weapons pressure. Fat

chance. Go to
avoid. Escape a rising
tide. Wonder

drug curbed.

Wednesday, July 21, 2004

Growing increasingly
political. Not just an ugly
farce. Essence of

lavender. Black hole
paradox answered (by the back
door). Overblown furor fails

to blow over. 

Monday, July 19, 2004

Body blows
for sure. 'It's
electric.' Flawed
intelligence every
time. Misled public
misattributed to
smoking gun. Short-
burning fuse. We were asking
where the buck stops.

Sunday, July 18, 2004

Must go, they
say. Hottest young
models snubbed.
Stunning homes
for modern
art. Scarlet spy
chief shy
prodigy who became
a 'poised'
fighter. Superbug
rise. Pressure
to block. He is happy
to stay.  

Saturday, July 17, 2004

Reveals all
surgery. Light,
fantastic. Tracks a
suicide. Moment
of impact. Practical
partial apology
offered. Forces face frequent
attacks. 'Interested'
to hear of suspect's
arrest. Mild smacking. Stone-
eating bug. Violent
teachers. Art
to eating. Nuclear-
free religion

Friday, July 16, 2004

Alive in your life
like that? Greatness
beckons, playing a
cartoon cat. Legality
'flawed'. He said Washington
was influenced
by exile. Dominance at
risk as experts
plug holes. Revenge
attacks writer. Computer
to draw.  

Thursday, July 15, 2004

Full stretch to stretch
limo. Limbo calls to
foetus calls to

preacher. In his
dreams. Pregnancy raises
prospects for

reversal. Property: a
style guru's
guide. Selling shares

for divorce. Tube strikes
chaos. 'My son was just
a piece of meat

to him.'

Wednesday, July 14, 2004

A tone beyond
sarcastic no
great help. 'For it was

the new.' Important
milestone. Allies end
truce. Too young

to fully
understand. 'Abruptly cedes
power to silence

guns.' What?

Monday, July 12, 2004

Shoulder to shoulder
pledge life
in clan. String put

at risk. Zapper
ends car

chase. Taunts
with house. Rubbish

claims have ordered

Wednesday, July 07, 2004

Courageous has gone. 'Sorry
for calling the press
cowardly.' Another day

bloody. 'I'm a sucker
for a picture of
a baby.' Exhausted.

Hitting back. Opera rocks
the mud. Historians hold
back learning. Widens his

inquiry. Forces under

Tuesday, July 06, 2004

Bill for chaos. Prince
attacks a precious
commodity. Community

in turmoil. Men
uncovered. Takes fight
to court to

fight it
out. Where did it all
go? Flooded in boxes

around the country.

Monday, July 05, 2004

Hit (in the face) with
diamonds. How I first
laid eyes. Charming

and being. Award
for life. 'A long fadeout
of rancor.' Rank and

file of miniature
entombments. Like no other
in Hollywood history. Where

does self-
obsession go?

Sunday, July 04, 2004

Failure to paint. Lose
on points on
point. Ten days

besides. A waste
of money wisely
spent. Play

dumb and/or dead.
Blow on eve
of bid an all-

time low.

Thursday, July 01, 2004

Penalty clause
again. The politics
of being

funny. Plucking our
heartstrings. Cracked
up breaking in.

'They demanded
his phone.' Handover
of power. Absenteeism
