hSpeedos are legal here
CAPE MAY, N.J. -- Come on in, Speedo wearers, the water's fine: Your skimpy little swimsuits are legal now. For more than 30 years, this quaint little Victorian-theme resort at the southern tip of New Jersey said no to "skintight, formfitting or bikini type" bathing attire on males over the age of 12. For an ocean resort that once required men and women to swim at different times of day, wearing heavy woolen, cover-everything swimsuits, it made sense to modernize. "It's a beach town, for God's sake," said Police Chief Diane Sorantino. The town also agreed to lift a rule that stopped bare-chested men from strolling along the beachfront promenade. Not that everyone's cheering. It's often the older guys -- the ones with beer guts, or wrinkly skin, or unsightly tufts of hair -- who wear the tiny swimsuits. "The people you want to see in the Speedos, you don't," said Maggie Creighton, 19, who works in a downtown lingerie store.
Probe turns to heir's gun
GALVESTON, Texas -- Police investigating a Los Angeles murder want to examine a gun belonging to millionaire real estate heir Robert Durst, who was acquitted of killing a Galveston man whose body he admitted cutting up. Galveston County prosecutors filed a motion Friday seeking to release two guns belonging to Durst to authorities investigating the death of writer Susan Berman, a friend of Durst's missing first wife. Berman was killed in her Los Angeles home in 2000 as investigators were preparing to question her about the disappearance of Kathleen Durst. Robert Durst, who initially posed as a mute woman when he moved to Galveston, has not been charged in either Berman's death or his former wife's disappearance. "It is my opinion that Susan Berman most likely knew her killer and that Robert Durst is a viable suspect in the murder," Los Angeles police detective Paul Coulter said in an affidavit filed with Friday's motion.
