Dancing With the Stars announced their starting lineup to the next season, which features UCLA graduate Lew Alcindor and his shorter gal dancer. 2018 Olympian ice skaters are not paired together but with more skilled dancers. No word from ABC-TV whether they will make Kareem dance on ice, too.

Father Karras could not be located. The “Exorcist stairs” are concrete stairs located in Georgetown at the corner of Prospect St NW and 36th St NW, leading down to M Street NW. The stairs were padded with 1/2″-thick rubber to film the death of the character Father Karras. Maybe Father is still alive?!?
