SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) _ Sen. Sam Nunn says those tabloid reports are true - he is a space alien.

''I confess,'' the Georgia Democrat quipped during an appearance Monday. ''It's amazing I've been able to keep it a secret for 54 years.''

Weekly World News reported last week that Nunn and four other senators - Republicans Orrin Hatch of Utah, Nancy Kassebaum of Kansas and Alan Simpson of Wyoming and Democrat John Glenn of Ohio - are aliens.

Nunn, in Savannah to campaign for fellow Democrat Sen. Wyche Fowler, joked that he is from Krypton, Superman's fictional birthplace.
