    Suspended Seminoles QB Wyatt Sexton goes berserk after attending Dave Matthews Band concert. Locals are not sure what is more depressing about this story--that a young honors student would crawl around on all fours while claiming to be god and swearing at the police trying to cuff him, or that he was at a Dave Matthews Band concert. . . . . :rolleyes:

    Four-year-old boy dies on "Mission: Space" ride at Epcot. . . . . :frown:

    Elsewhere, Razor has announced a recall of over 230,000 electric scooters because the handlebars have a tendency to come off while riding . . . . . :eek:

    Meanwhile, Hollywood actor Sean Penn has set Tehran on its ear:

    Sean Penn Creates Stir on Iran Assignment
    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Sean Penn has stepped into the shoes of a reporter once again.

    The Oscar-winning actor has left a wake of excited fans and bewildered clerics around the Iranian capital while on a special assignment for the San Francisco Chronicle to cover Friday's presidential elections.

    Last week, Penn attended Friday prayers at Tehran University where worshippers gave the well-known chant of ''Death to America.'' On Monday, he told an audience at Tehran's Film Museum that such cries hurt prospects for starting a dialogue between Iran and the United States.

    His trip has offered Iranian photographers the rare taste of paparazzi-style celebrity hunting. Iran has a highly respected domestic film industry that has won countless international awards, but few Hollywood stars have visited since the Islamic Revolution.

    Given a press credential by Chronicle Executive Editor Phil Bronstein, Penn visited neighboring Iraq in late November 2003, shortly before Saddam Hussein was captured. He wrote a series of stories for the newspaper.

    Penn, 44, won a best-actor Oscar in 2004 for his portrayal of a grief-stricken father seeking revenge for his daughter's death in ''Mystic River,'' directed by Clint Eastwood.

    His screen credits also include ''I Am Sam,'' ''Sweet and Lowdown'' and ''Dead Man Walking.''
