Minnie Driver, the world famous actress that too many people seem not to have heard

And for those who want to know what Minnie actually looks like, one of her movies
"High heels and low lives" is on Star Movies tonight.
** Writing headlines for front page articles of newspapers is always a challenge,

for what could have been on this issue's page 1 lead:
** "King weds Hun Sen with Rainsy; Ranariddh mulls divorce"
** "Arranged marriage made in Palace"
** "Pointless stalemate over: Thank God"
** "King deals closing hand: three of a kind"
** "King's subjects take a bow: gov't formed"
** "All kids in govt sandbox but who nicked the shovel"
** "Hun Sen rules; slice of pie for Rainsy"
** "King delivers triple whammy to Sammy"
** "King knuckles Cambo party heads and wins"
** "King sorts threesome: let the plunder re-start"
** "Papa tells kaun chau: Get a life!"
** "Hun Sen stuck in middle of Club Sandwich-pass the mayo"
** "Papa weds angry kids in tenuous menage a trois"
** "New govt formed; Gary Glitter first in line with FDI"
** "Sen still sore so stay tuned"
