Prosecutors said an unnamed author working on a potential Eagles biography stole the materials from Henley in the late 1970s, and then sold them to Horowitz, a rare books and rock memorabilia dealer, in 2005.  Glenn Horowitz, Craig Inciardi and Edward Kosinski were charged on Tuesday.  Prosecutors say they attempted to sell Eagles lyrics sheets stolen in the 1970s.  Unnamed author allegedly stole the documents and sold them to Horowitz.  Horowitz, a memorabilia dealer, in turn sold them to Inciardi and Kosinski.  Prosecutors say they lied about the documents’ origins to turn a profit.  All three men are free on bail after pleading not guilty to the charges.

Bradley Cooper Is Dating Political Aide Huma Abedin

A star couple is born: Huma Abedin and Bradley Cooper are dating, insiders told Page Six.

The top aide to Hillary Clinton — and former wife of disgraced politician Anthony Weiner — has been seeing the A-lister for the past few months, according to multiple sources.

They were introduced by Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who is close with both of them.

“Anna definitely played matchmaker,” said one well-placed source. “She’s BFFs with Bradley and adores Huma.”

A Hollywood insider confirmed that “Bradley has been quietly dating Huma for a few months now, they’ve been keeping it really quiet.

“Bradley broke up with [actress] Dianna Agron and started dating Huma.”

The well-placed source added that Abedin “has told a few friends” she had a “new man … but she didn’t say who it was. She was keeping it very close to her chest.

“They are perfect for each other,” the source said. “They’re both into power and politics and human affairs.”

Page Six is told that the high-profile pair arrived together at the Met Gala on May 2 and then split up for the red carpet. Pictures show Abedin, 46, in a canary-yellow gown posing for the cameras, with Cooper, 47, keeping his distance behind her.

Costco CEO Has Perfect Response After Being Asked If Price Of Hot Dog Combo Could Rise Due To Inflation

Costco has been offering that iconic pairing for $1.50 since 1985, and it’s long served as the light at the end of the tunnel for anyone who’s had to spend an hour trying to navigate an oversized shopping cart through the maze of one of its crowded warehouses.

Jim Sinegal, the Costco co-founder who formerly served as the company’s CEO, was a devoted advocate of the famous loss-leader to the point where he once told someone who suggested increasing that number, “If you raise the price of the f—king hot dog, I’ll kill you.”

On Monday, current CEO Craig Jelinek addressed if the hotdog price will ever increase during an appearance on CNBC, he only needed a single word to answer if any amount of inflation could impact the price: “No.”
