        Millions Face Famine in Indonesia 
        JAKARTA, Indonesia -- Millions of Indonesians face an
        impending famine due to dire food shortages, a newspaper
        has reported. Many families can only afford a single daily
        meal, and things could get worse before the rice harvest in
        January, Food Minister A.M. Saefuddin was quoted as
        saying in The Jakarta Post on Monday.

        Starr: Lewinsky Probe Cost $4.4M
        WASHINGTON -- President Clinton's denial in January of a
        sexual relationship with Monica Lewinsky cost more than
        the personal embarrassment of Kenneth Starr's report.
        Taxpayers will foot a bill of at least $4.4 million, The
        Associated Press has learned.
