The Buzz: Cave

It was 20 years ago today: The computer scientist who created the world's first website and made it available to all on this day in 1993 has brought the site back to life.

Intended as a tutorial on using the World Wide Web, the site consists of crude drawings of human figures spearing bison.

Wine stars: Seeking to stand out in a crowded market, some winemakers are branding their products with the names of celebrities, such as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Brangelina's wine is a higher-end affair made from grapes grown at the star couple's vineyard in the south of France.

Meanwhile, the Buzz awaits a Lindsay Lohan wine, which would be sourced from the bottom shelves at Mort's Liquor Barrel in North Hollywood.

Horse hockey: Plus-size New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie bellowed a barnyard epithet Tuesday in denouncing claims he wants to block waterfront homes' views with things like hot dog stands.

Indeed, it's hard to imagine Christie backing a bunch of hot dog stands that don't even have drive-thru windows.
