ANDY GRIFFITH plays Santa for an entire North Carolina town -- Mayberry has high-speed wi-fi?

DEAD OR ALIVE: I wish I had seen this site before I finished my year-in-review project.

TIME AND NEWSWEEK devote their cover stories this week to debunking the story of Jesus' birth.

LIFE IN CHINA must be pretty bad.

GOOD GRIEF: One can only imagine what Charlie Brown would make of a giant chocolate creche.

ON THE PITCHFORK: Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic sold on eBay for seven thousand, three hundred dollars.

THE EXISTENCE OF BLOGGERS shows the difficulties inherent in creating a reporter's privilege. Put another way, free speech is for everyone.

ROWAN ATKINSON: Mr. Bean makes his own stand for freedom of speech.

BOB DYLAN ON 60 MINUTES: An infomercial?

NATIONAL TREASURE remains atop the box office and is not as far-fetched as it sounds.

PLASTIC EXPLOSIVES were loaded on a plane in Paris and then lost, after a test of bomb-sniffing dogs went awry.

SEARCHING NEVERLAND... and Michael Jackson's mouth.

UKRAINE UPDATE: As the former Soviet republic struggles toward a clean election, it is important to note that Yulia Tymoshenko, the top ally of opposition leader Yushchenko -- who favors closer ties with the West -- looks strikingly similar to Princess Leia. Granted, it's The Empire Strikes Back Leia, when The Return of the Jedi Leia would be even better, for the obvious reason.

NICK NOLTE has been sued by the parents of a teenage girl who said she was raped during a party in his absence at his Malibu home after being plied with drugs by Nolte's security guard.

U.N. NUKE CHIEF MOHAMMED EL BARADEI angrily denied charges he had collaborated with Iran. But this story in the London Telegraph on the Iranian nuke program does not look good. The Telegraph also has new allegations against Kojo Annan in the U.N. Oil-For-Food scandal.

SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS: In the midst of a rash of thefts of inflatable Spongebobs, a few are returned to their rightful owners.

TAVIS SMILEY has split from National Public Radio and this interview with Time, in which he says the Bush cabinet is more diverse than NPR, suggests he's more Frowny than Smiley these days.

FEMALE FIRST reports that Tommy Lee's marriage to Heather Locklear broke up after spending quality time with a porn star in a bathroom on the set of her movie (that would do it, I think); Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin conceived baby Apple on the back of Coldplay's tour bus, according to roadies seemingly more jealous of the space than the act.

IRAN has some... interesting criticism of Al-Jazeera.

THE CHRONICLE SCOOPS AGAIN: This time with grand jury testimony from Barry Bonds, who demonstrates why so many people don't like him very much. If you're interested in following the BALCO story, David Pinto's Baseball Musings will probably be on the case. Of course, if you're a baseball fan you probably already have that site bookmarked.

PROTEIN WISDOM has Holiday Wishes From Anna Nicole Smith.

THE MUMMY RETURNS: King Tut is coming back to Chicago's Field Museum in 2006 as part of a U.S. tour starting next year. I saw the first exhibit in 1977, but this time I hope to answer questions left hanging, like "How'd he get so funky?" and "Did he do the Monkey?" And yes, I did see Steve Martin in the same general timeframe, at the late, unlamented Universal Amphitheater.

NINTENDO is getting into the movie business. I don't know why, since there's much more money in video games.

THE HOLY GRAIL: What is your quest? British codebreakers join the search, but is the Grail elusive or an illusion? This article gets bonus points in my book for mentioning the Merovingians, because the Merovingian swore in French in the Matrix sequels, much as the French taunted King Arthur in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Then again, my book is only read by other crazy people.

CAUGHT ON TAPE: Two of the Texas strip club murders, on videotape and phone conversations between Florida teacher Debra LaFave and the 14-year-old student with whom she allegedly had sex, on audiotape.

SONY IS HARASSING BLOGGER JASON KOTTKE for posting audio and text of Ken Jennings finally losing on Jeopardy. Fortunately, it has not come to a lawsuit... yet. Perhaps clearer minds will prevail.

THE ALGONQUIN HOTEL is trying to bring back the Round Table, but ten thousand dollars for a martini seems a little pricey.

REMEMBER THAT MISSING STOCKPILE OF HIGH EXPLOSIVES IN IRAQ? The Independent, hardly a right-wing paper, may have a partial answer to where they went... and when.

FANS MOCK PLASTIC SURGERY: Liz Hurley seems to have developed "trout pout." Nicollette Sheridan is pitching a skin care product, though many think her face is not kept in a jar by the door.

THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION "is a disaster waiting to happen, according to one NASA flight controller.

BEHIND THE BURKA: a pictorial on The Women of Afghanistan.

ANN ALTHOUSE was a member of the Who fan club before their first album was released in the United States; now, not so much.

CAMERA PHONES will soon have lenses made from a couple of drops of oil and water.

JASON GIAMBI: Credit where it's due -- the S.F. Chronicle broke the story of his grand jury admission that he was on the juice in 2003.
