News & Notes from Penn Camera
By Jeff Snyder

Penn Camera and I would like to express our sincere sympathies to all of you affected by the tragedies in New York and here in Washington. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

We thought that the events from a few weeks ago were enough, this past Tuesday a Tornado touched down here and two University of Maryland students were killed, and hundreds of homes destroyed, within a few blocks of our offices. I saw the twister while inmy car, and was able to avoid it as it made its way past me. When I saw the Washington Post vending machine flying through the air, the Post's slogan of "If you don't get it, you don't get it" took on new meaning.

And then MJ made his big announcement so we do have something to look forward to? I know that many of you will be coming to the MCI Center here for Mr. Jordan's upcoming return to the NBA, please stop by and say hello.

And as I type this the Redskins cut QB Jeff George ... what's next?
