 Apocalypse Mao. Years ago, Dennis Hopper put two bullets through his Andy Warhol print of Mao Zedong -- and yesterday, the perforated art fetched a tidy sum at auction.

 And...bodychecks and balances. After banning a sports reporter, a B.C. hockey team allows him back in -- presumably hoping for some backhand compliments.
