Kelly Key was an early casualty in the war on drugs. In June, 1970, the six-year Los Angeles police officer was paralyzed by a narcotics dealer's bullet during what had begun as a routine raid on a Willowbrook area apartment. Key, though, never lost his will to fight or to serve, according to police officials, friends and doctors. Confined to a wheelchair, the Gardena resident was a familiar sight at youth counseling and tutoring centers, steering youngsters away from drugs and street gangs.

He was paralyzed nearly two decades ago by a bullet fired while he tried to serve a search warrant on a suspected cocaine dealer.

TRENTON, N.J. -- In the mysterious political grudge-fest that spawned the George Washington Bridge traffic pileup, a new object of ire has emerged: a New Jersey rabbi. A newly released version of a text exchange between David Wildstein and Bridget Anne Kelly, two key figures in the bridge scandal, shows them exchanging barbed jokes about Rabbi Mendy Carlebach of the Chabad of North and South Brunswick - and chaplain to the Police Department at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls the bridges.

Christopher Kelly, a key figure in the federal corruption investigation of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, has died. A onetime confidant and top fundraiser for Blagojevich, Kelly was accused of using his office to leverage campaign donations and benefits for himself and his family.

His name is Adam Lingner, but hey, just call him Super Snapper. I mean, why not? This guy has been to more Super Bowls than O.J. Simpson, Walter Payton, Eric Dickerson, Herschel Walker, Randall Cunningham and Bo Jackson combined. Is it his fault that he has played in 162 NFL games and made the starting lineup once ? That he never catches, carries or kicks a football and makes tackles only by accident? That his uniform is cleaner than a cheerleader's?

Fawn Hall, the former secretary to Lt. Col. Oliver North, was easily the center of attraction at the jam-packed Washington Hilton ballroom at the annual dinner of the White House Correspondents Assn.
