Monday's episode of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' will be dedicated to a Senate bill targeting child predators, according to a release issued Friday by Chicago-based Harpo Productions.
During the show, which will detail the 'extent and pervasiveness of child pornography trafficking in America,' Winfrey will ask viewers to contact their senators about U.S. Senate Bill 1738, the Protect Our Children Act, Harpo said.
'Lost' star pleads no contest to DUI charges
HONOLULU - 'Lost' star Daniel Dae Kim pleaded no contest to drunken driving charges and was ordered to pay a $500 fine. Whether his character on the popular castaway drama absorbs more punishment remains to be seen.
Kim, 40, who plays Jin-Soo Kwon, was arrested Oct. 25 when a police officer spotted him driving erratically in Honolulu. His blood alcohol content was 0.168, more than double the state's legal limit.
District Judge William Cardwell scolded Kim, who wore a dark, gray suit and blue shirt in court Thursday.

'I love Kimora,' gushed Williams, who moonlights as a fashion designer for Aneres (her name spelled backward). 'She's a great person and I love her fashions.'
