UK press: Frustration starts to show
As if the military might of Nato wasn't enough, the stars are also against Slobodan Milosevic, according to the Sunday Express.
The paper's astrology column reports that, as a Leo, he finds it impossible to back down - but his resilience will indeed be tested to the full - though not, it seems, until July next year.
Which is about 14 months too late for many of the papers. Signs of real frustration are beginning to show this morning. The Mail on Sunday says that two and a half weeks on, we're still no nearer to knowing when the war is going to end -- and Nato's political and military leaders seem as much in the dark as the public.
The Independent on Sunday is also losing patience. A swift end to the war is what's needed, especially one which was started with no clear military aims, and has created so many refugees in the name of humanity.
The Sunday Telegraph detects signs that politicians in the West are also looking around for a quick exit. A whispering campaign has begun, it says, with sources close to the government suggesting that Tony Blair has been "badly advised" over the campaign.
However, there's no such suggestion from the prime minister himself, writing exclusively in the Sunday Mirror. He says real evil is being done by the Serbs in Kosovo, and promises that it will be defeated.
As the search continues for a way out of mire in the Northern Ireland peace process, the Sunday Times says the government is preparing a "sop" to the IRA, by offering to cut the numbers of troops, military bases and legally held guns in the province, in exchange for a deal on decommissioning.
But the Mail appears despondent at the IRA's statement yesterday dismissing the latest attempts at an accord. It says the process has been thrown into fresh turmoil.
Irish eyes are smiling
The Grand National winner, Bobbyjo, and his jockey Paul Carberry, are the undisputed stars of the sports pages this morning.
The Sunday People says Irish eyes were smiling at Aintree as Bobbyjo became the first winner of race from "over the water" since 1975. But several papers focus on Jenny Pitman, the legendary trainer who was bidding farewell to the world's most famous steeplechase on Saturday.
The Mirror said the fairytale of the Queen of Aintree winning the National on the day of her abdication was not to happen.
But the Express looks back at what it says has been a "stunning" career and sums it all up with the phrase "The going has been good".
Keep off the grass
And finally, from the turf to the grass. And there's welcome news in the Independent for everyone who detests trimming the stuff.
It seems there's now a perfectly good environmental excuse for just letting it grow. Scientists in America have discovered that the distinctive aroma of new-mown lawns is, in fact, a cocktail of chemicals that can damage the atmosphere, and help cause smog.
The cartoon accompanying the story shows a man waist deep in grass, asking his next door neighbour: "Mind if I don't borrow the mower?"
