DETROIT (AP) - Domestic models have been shut out in a new insurance industry list of the 13 safest vehicles. It's due mainly to a new requirement that all cars and sport utilities on the list have systems to keep them stable in an emergency.

NEW YORK (AP) - O.J. Simpson says he's "legally muzzled" from commenting on News Corporation's decision to cancel a project about his ex-wife's slaying. The television and book project featured Simpson describing how he would have killed his ex-wife. It was met with harsh criticism.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - "Seinfeld" co-star Michael Richards says he's deeply sorry for hurling racial slurs at two black hecklers last week. Richards made a brief appearance on David Letterman's show last night. One veteran publicist fears the rant will ruin the comic's career.
