Michelle Duggar, with No. 19 on the way, is in a Little Rock hospital. Gallstones.

Tiger Woods' mother-in-law in hospital. Stomach pain. More Tiger news: Prosecutor quashed state trooper's effort to get blood sample in his crash on account of suspicion of DUI. Celebrity get special treatment? Not in the future, perhaps. He's entered John Daly tabloid territory.

UPDATE: Here's an interesting analysis of the Woods story that helps explain why the story has importance beyond titillation.

The more that's known about this -- the corporate blackmail in magazine publishing particularly -- the worse it gets.
