2) World news roundup

In a significant, unprecedented moment in the history of the Roman Catholic
church, Pope John Paul II asked God’s forgiveness for the sins of Roman
Catholics throughout time, including past errors such as acts against Jews,
minorities, and women. Suffering from Parkinson’s disease, the 79-year old
pope had previously vowed to “cleanse and reinvigorate Catholicism for its
third millennium.” …El Salvador’s former leftist rebels claimed victory
in mayorial elections Sunday, predicting gains in the voting that will
shift the balance of power in congress. …Nearly two and a half months
after the rest of the world saw the dawn of the new millennium,
Longyearbyen, Norway celebrated it’s first sunrise last week. The residents
of the world’s northernmost village last saw the sun in mid-October.

O’Neal’s 39, as L.A. now holds the longest winning streak in the NBA since
