Our friends at lemonwade.com have discovered that a book will come out next Valentine's Day by an ex marine named Scotty who ran a Richfield gas station in the glory (hole) days, where huge movie stars "got more than their mufflers serviced."

In next week's column, I'll have a sitdown interview with Jim Neal, the openly gay Democrat running against incumbent Elizabeth Dole for Jesse Helms's old Senate seat in North Carolina.
