D'AMATO'S HARDLY HOARSE ANNOUNCING HIS DIVORCE

Sen. Alfonse D'Amato, who held a news conference to announce he was in love, released only a single-sentence statement to announce he was divorced.

The New York Republican and his wife, Penelope, were granted a divorce Friday in state Supreme Court. The couple had been legally separated for 13 years but had continued to share a home on Long Island.The divorce has been expected since earlier this year when D'Amato told reporters he had fallen in love with Claudia Cohen, the former wife of cosmetic-company heir Ronald Perelman.
