Wednesday, July 23 in the news....

  • Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama toured Israel's Holocaust memorial Wednesday, laying a wreath in memory of the 6 million Jews who died and saying, 'Ultimately, this is a place of hope.' He then muttered under his breath, 'because maybe we can get the rest of them next time'.

  • 50 Cent has sued Taco Bell, claiming the fast-food restaurant chain is using his name without permission in advertising that asks him to call himself 99 Cent. The rapper's court papers say the ad is part of Taco Bell's "Why Pay More?" campaign, which promotes items for under a dollar. 50 Cent said he's never seen such underhanded methods to move products since he sold crack.
