"The royal family have so much already that they don't actually give wildly extravagant presents,'' said an unnamed friend of Camilla, quoted by the paper.

Vermont town bans public nudity after brash displays

A Vermont town that is gaining national attention for brash displays of nudity -- from teens in the buff to naked elderly people -- awoke on Wednesday to an emergency ban on nakedness in most public places.
