I don't know how Sinestro's activities fit in, but from Superman's death to his return was (at the time) all supposed to have taken place in four to six weeks. Remember, Superman was finding survivors from Doomsday's rampage when he returned. Clark Kent's extended absence was also explained that way after "Superman" (Supergirl in diguise) "found" him in a collapsed building. The first few issues after Superman's return might narrow it down a bit more, but I'm pretty confident the whole storyline was no more than a month and a half in the characters' time.

But, getting back to the other topic -- Lex's murder of Sasha -- I'll definately have to research that.

Now, see, this is the second estimate I've heard. The last time it was suggested to me as being about three months.

I wish they'd say something about that. I'd guess the length you suggest might make more sense, what with people still being found alive in bomb shelters after Superman returned, tho' on the other hand the amount of hair growth Clark had looks a little more than six weeks' worth. (I'm not even sure three months would explain it, tho'. \:\-p )
