The OJ Simpson armed robbery trial finally went to jury, meaning he'll very soon finally do some jail time.

Citi was set to acquire Wachovia......but that was scrapped when Wells Fargo swooped in with $15B.

Sarah Palin had completely lost all credibility with most of America...

...then regained it (somewhat) with an above-average VP debate performance.

California decided they needed a $7B loan too.

Bill O'Reilly goes after friend-of-online poker Barney Frank, calling him a "coward

Steve Fossett's remains are found after he goes missing...a year ago.

And Gambling911.com's own Jenny Woo did not have "sexual relationships" with four different partners. She did, however, go another 22 hours without smoking and continued working on that brand new body of hers (the cost of a gym membership).
