SPEAKING OF NEWSIES, two new hotties emerged from last week's ruckus: manly lantern-jawed Q13 hunk Lowell Deo, and comely KIRO 7 pup Kyle Moore. Like her stationmate Kyle, KIRO's Meeghan Black was on fire, always in the thick of the action. I smell a news Emmy! KIRO's sensational (read: lurid) reporting was admirably co-anchored by the archly fabulous Penny LeGate; however, macho co-anchor Steve Raible lent a fascistic buzzkill quality to the proceedings (as noted in an irate letter in Sunday's Seattle Times).

TOURISTS: The WTO protests were too hard core for most celebs, but Dave says he spotted sexy ex-Mariner first baseman David Segui, "shopping bags in hand," watching the anti-WTO rally outside Niketown. ··· Also spotted, Jane Fonda ex Tom Hayden. The fiery hippie-turned-slackjawed-California-congressman offered a few bland words to KIRO TV cameras. ··· Chubby 'n' lovable populist agitator Michael Moore (Roger and Me, Bravo TV show The Awful Truth) appeared at WTO ground zero, right in front of the Paramount. When someone handed Moore a megaphone, he called upon the "evil" Michael Moore -- WTO president -- to come on out and change his name! Even though the "good" Mike wore a NY Yankees hat (grrr!), he was tremendously popular -- people slapped his back like he was an old pal.
