If you were dying to have lyrics by the Celtic folk-punk Pogues' front man without the music, here they are. But why anyone would spend the price of a CD for that is unclear. MacGowan writes good lyrics--sometimes very good--but even with the best lyrics, the musical context is about 80% of the deal. The drawings (by Hewitt) and photos (by Pyke) are an attraction, but only for real Pogues fans--and then only those who can stand to look at pictures of MacGowan's famous bad teeth.

Mr. Bill, a 13-foot-long sawfish with a snout like a chain saw, was floating dead in his tank. So were more than half a dozen sand tiger sharks, sleek gray creatures measuring 9 feet long. They were like so many neglected goldfish. The macaws in the Amazon rain forest exhibit, where temperatures rose to 140 degrees in the absence of air conditioning, were clinging to life. When a small group of workers returned to the blacked-out aquarium a few days ago, the smell was nauseating.

A Colorado prison consultant will tour Orange County Jail facilities next month in response to persistent concerns about jail overcrowding and incidents of inmate violence.

The visit was approved by Sheriff Brad Gates, he said.

What do professional tax preparers think of the flat tax idea proposed by presidential candidate Jerry Brown? Not surprisingly, not much. "The more you simplify something, the more unfair it is," complained John Hewitt, president of Jackson Hewitt Inc. "It's basically unfair to charge people the same rate." Of course, a flat tax would also make it less likely that taxpayers would need professionals such as Hewitt to help them understand the tax laws and to prepare their personal tax returns.
