The truth and nothing but: Former Secretary of State George Shultz said he doesn't expect everyone who reads his memoirs to be happy. "I have to tell it the way I see it, as I felt it at the time," he said. Shultz has contracted with Charles Scribner's Sons for a reported $2 million to write two books: one a memoir and the other on the art of diplomacy.
* Foiled: The computer showed no one won the $28 million jackpot--the largest in the history of the Massachusetts lottery. So when Ralph Brunner, 25, of Newton, allegedly added the winning numbers to his ticket with a dot-matrix printer and tried to claim the prize, he was arrested and charged with forging a lottery ticket. "I guess he figured he was going to walk away with the money," lottery spokesman David Ellis said.
*Exemplary: Axel Hanson of Chippewa Falls, Wis., capped a perfect 72-year driving career with what officials called a rare act: voluntarily giving up his driver's license at age 88. "I figured at my age I might make a wrong move sometime or other," Hanson said. "I thought it was a good idea to give up my license for my own safety and for other people, too."
