Mr. Moneybags: "The Lakers gave Shaq a contract extension believed to be worth more than $88 million over the next three years. His other contract is like $120-$125 million. They said the idea is to make Shaq so wealthy, he won't even think about making another rap album." (Jay Leno)

Lucky Numbers: "Thirteen employees at an L.A. Starbucks will share an $87 million lottery jackpot. One player said she could now afford a new car. Another said he could put a down payment on a house. A third said she could now pay for a mocha Frappuccino." (Jerry Perisho)

Countdown: "George W. Bush performed the Top 10 List on David Letterman. . . . He wanted to reassure supporters that if he is given the power to launch nuclear missiles, he can count backward from 10." (Argus Hamilton)

Rude Awakenings: "Scientists were able to bring prehistoric germs back to life after about 250 million years in a deep sleep. Maybe there's hope for the Clippers." (Kenny Noble Cortes)

Irreplaceable: "Anna Nicole Smith told 'Entertainment Tonight' that she doesn't know if she will ever marry again. She says there isn't another man out there like her late husband.
