An estimated 87,000 people flooded the National Mall on Saturday for Fox News commentator Glenn Beck's controversial rally, "Restoring Honor."

The rally took place on the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's historic "I Have a Dream" speech.

Beck is asking for a return to traditional American values, but the Reverend Al Sharpton accused him of trying to hijack King's legacy.

"They want to disgrace this day. This is our day and we're not giving it up," said Sharpton.

For the second straight day, plumes of hot ash clog the air in Sumatra, an island off Indonesia.

It's the first time this volcano has erupted in 400 years. Thirty thousand people have been forced to flee.

And, another mug shot for Paris Hilton. The socialite was arrested and charged with cocaine possession. She's been released, but reportedly doesn't think it's that big of a deal.

An old standby and a new hit won top honors at the Emmy Awards. "Mad Men" won best dramatic show for the third year in a row. ABC's "Modern Family" was voted best comedy series.

And, Finland hosted the 15th Air Guitar World Championships.

Forty-one contestants strutted, flailed and gyrated their way across the stage, but in the end it was all love.

Frenchman Gunther Love retained his winning title and credited his win to his gold pants.
