CNN stops at Union Terminal
All the TV equipment at Union Terminal Thursday morning will be for CNN. Senior White House correspondent John King is taping the intro and concluding stand-ups for CNN’s “War in Iraq: Voices from the Homefront.” King decided to come to Union Terminal because President Bush had made his case for going to war from the rotunda in October 20002, and because Ohio was a key state in the election a year ago. The special will air sometime the weekend of Oct. 14-16.
The “Reality 4 Diabetes” fund-raisers this weekend starts Thursday with a “Survivor: Guatemala” viewing party 7-11 p.m. today with some reality TV stars at Westy’s Pub, 7820 Camargo Road, Madeira. Admission is 5 bucks.
In town this weekend are more than two dozen stars from several “Survivors,” “The Amazing Race,” “Joe Millionaire” “The Real World: Los Angeles,” “Average Joe” and “The Mole.” (A full list is posted at www.reality4diabetes.com.)
Other events include bowling noon-3 Friday in Deer Park; a dinner 7-11 p.m. Friday at Raffel’s in Sharonville; a 5k walk Saturday in Newport; and autograph party 7-8:30 p.m. Saturday at Pizza Tower near I-71/Fields-Ertel Road.

Back in "ER?"
Wonder if Eric Lange, a 1991 Fairfield High School grad, will be back on "ER" again Thursday? He was in last week's show, playing the father of the brain-damaged baby delivered by a surrogate mother. Upset that the child was not perfect, the father (Lange) and mother left the baby there and walked out of County General.
