THERE ARE SO MANY GAG celebrity news sites on the Internet, Tattle never knows when we might be pulling a "Fox & Friends" and sourcing a farcical site (haven't done that) or sourcing a real site which mistakenly sourced a farcical site (may have done that). RadarOnline.com isn't a site you'd check out to learn more about the battle over the debt ceiling, but for celebrity gossip it usually has credible non-news. But this Radar story sounds as if it came from the Onion . Lindsay Lohan is considering opening her own rehab center.

A Montgomery County Court judge yesterday ruled that Christopher J. Ford was unaware he was doing anything wrong when he attacked and killed his parents with a kitchen knife 19 months ago. Judge Paul W. Tressler found Ford, 25, not guilty by reason of insanity in a short trial on murder and assault charges stemming from the September 1993 attack at the Ford family's Abington home. After the verdict, Ford, a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, was involuntarily committed to the state mental hospital system, where he will remain until a court order is issued declaring that he is sane.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - With a military honor guard carrying her casket, Betty Ford returned Thursday to the church where she and her husband were married more than 60 years ago, a wedding that launched the unassuming Michigan couple on an unexpected path to the White House. The former first lady's children were joined for the final memorial service by prominent political figures and hundreds of mourners from Ford's hometown of Grand Rapids. The crowd outside Grace Episcopal Church stood in silence as nine pallbearers took her casket inside while softly counting out military cadence.

Since one of music theater's goals is to blur the boundaries of category, cutting-edge composer Anthony Davis and the AMTF (previous collaborators on "X") make the ideal team. In the less musically formal "Tania," Patty Hearst's brief, bewildering stint as a revolutionary is the vehicle for exploring the universal search for identity. Five TV monitors hang over the steeply raked stage, displaying eerie, occasionally disorienting counterimages taken from overhead and odd angles (like the bank TV cameras that captured her)

FORMER PRESIDENT GERALD R. Ford was feeling chipper enough yesterday to regale doctors at Hahnemann University Hospital with amusing tales of his football playing days at the University of Michigan. "He feels great and wants to go home," a physician said. Ford was recovering in the hospital's intensive-care unit after suffering what were described as two "minor" strokes between Tuesday night and yesterday morning. "I am very happy to report that President Ford is improving," said Dr. Robert Schwartzman, chief of neurology at Hahnemann.

Former President Gerald Ford, one of only four living ex-presidents, was rushed to Hahnemann University Hospital this morning from the First Union Center, where he had been attending the Republican National Convention. Ford, 87, was taken to the hospital by Secret Service agents after complaining of an earache, said Calvin McDowell, a Ford spokesman. The hospital diagnosed him with wax buildup in an ear and gave him an antibiotic, McDowell said. John Van Fossen, a legislative aide for U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra, said the Michigan delegation was told that Ford was suffering from bronchitis.

As you read this, Lindsay Lohan is enjoying sobriety tucked up in the luxurious if not extravagant bosom of that famed former-First-Lady-inspired celeb rehab, the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., TMZ reports. LiLo, who has racked up more arrests, jail time, rehab stays, drunken fights, boyfriends, and breakups at the tender age of 26 than many a world-class rogue accrues in a lifetime, got to the center via a tortured and circuitous road. Ordered to spend 90 days in an inpatient program in lieu of jail, LiLo was supposed to park her neuroses at the Seafield Centre in Westhampton Beach, N.Y., but balked when she found out it was a nonsmoking joint.

Ford, who died Friday at 93, chose former first lady Rosalynn Carter and journalist Cokie Roberts from the political realm, and a former director of her Betty Ford Center to address her passion for helping others overcome substance and alcohol abuse.

Gerald Ford, who didn't learn he was adopted until he was a teenager, didn't like to dwell on the past. The 38th president believed in putting what's done behind you and moving on to the next task. Understand that, and you better understand why Ford pardoned Richard Nixon, who had resigned to avoid impeachment. Americans were faced with too many problems - Vietnam, inflation, an energy shortage - to spend "all of my time" on Watergate, Ford later said. Ford died Tuesday at age 93, the oldest former American president.
