Third time’s a charm for Paul

Former Beatle Paul McCartney wed again on Sunday, Oct. 9. His new bride is American heiress Nancy Shevell. The wedding was much more low-key than Sir Paul’s previ­ous one with model Heather Mills. However, a slew of celebrities, such as Mick Jagger and Barbara Walters, attended the wedding in London.

Apple co-founder dies

Steve Jobs, one of the innovators of everything Apple and iPod, died on Wednesday, Oct. 5. His death was not unexpected because Jobs had been struggling with cancer for years. He was one of the first com­puter engineers to realize the appeal of letting users operate computers by clicking on text with a mouse rather than writing text.

Excitement in Milwaukee

The Milwaukee Brewers have ad­vanced to their first league cham­pionship series since 1982. Spark-plug centerfielder Nyjer Morgan singled home Carlos Gomez for the game-winning run in the 10th in­ning of the deciding Game 5 against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Mor­gan and the rest of the ‘Crew’ will take on the division rival, St. Louis Cardinals, for a chance to go to the World Series.

Now, all over the country pro­tests are breaking out. People from all over the political and ideologi­cal spectrum are coming together to express their opinions about the economy.
