Searchers today found three more bodies in the wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise ship that capsized off the Italian coast, an official said, raising the number discovered to 28 and leaving four still missing.
Dear Shirley, I never knew I had so many friends. They are coming out of the woodwork now that Anderson Cooper surprised me when I was in New York last week. At the end of his interview that was shown Tuesday, he said Celebrity Cruises is going to fly me and a friend to a 12-night luxury voyage along the Mediterranean. It would be aboard Celebrity Silhouette. Can you believe all this that has happened since I went viral, Shirley?

Divers searching the capsized Costa Concordia cruise ship off a Tuscan island found eight bodies today on one of the passenger decks, including that of a missing 5-year-old Italian girl, authorities said.
A thin film of oil spread from the Costa Concordia cruise ship as waves battered its wreckage off Italy's coast today, adding to fears of an environmental disaster in the area's sensitive, pristine waters.
In a blog posting Tuesday, the children of Jerry and Barbara Heil of White Bear Lake, Minn., say they are "certainly disheartened to hear the news" but understand. The Heils' children say they "cannot express enough" their gratitude to everyone involved in the search and rescue effort.
Italy's Civil Protection agency said today that technical studies indicated the deformed hull of the ship created too many safety concerns to continue the search within it. Relatives of the missing and diplomatic officials representing their countries have been informed of the decision, it said in a statement.
Oscar Luigi Scalfaro held numerous prestigious posts before becoming Italy's ninth postwar president, a position that is largely ceremonial but carries the significant role of moral compass for the country.
