SO WHEN DID Bombay become Mumbai? Officially, in 1995, when the Hindu nationalist party Shiv Sena won elections in the state of Maharashtra. After the election, the party announced that the port city had been renamed after the Hindu goddess Mumbadevi, the city's patron deity. Federal agencies, local businesses and newspapers were ordered to adopt the change. Shiv Sena's leadership had pushed for the change for years, arguing that "Bombay" was a corrupted English version of "Mumbai" and an unwanted legacy of British rule.

Due to the recent outbreaks across the Western Hemisphere of both mad-cow and foot-and-mouth disease, the creative department of the Washington think tank Gog and Magog Enterprises has been put to the rather difficult task of creating new items for the McDonald's menu, so the restaurant can sell heretofore unpopular parts of its various slaughtered animals. This will allow it to lower steeply rising costs and widen profit margins (as well as a few customers) during this difficult worldwide economic contraction.

THE MOVIE "Enemy of the State" is to spy-satellite technology what the Rev. Jerry Falwell is to geopolitical analysis. In that movie, spy satellites provided moving images of precise clarity of any desired location instantaneously. The reality is that spy satellites can produce still images with a resolution as high as 4 inches once a satellite in fixed orbit passes over a desired location, which can take several hours. You can tell a person is there, but not be able to recognize a face.

If Philadelphia and environs were a garden of poetry, it'd be … quite a garden. It'd be huge.
