important news ....
Wal-Mart had a customer arrested Monday who gave the checker
a million-dollar bill and insisted on her change. It made national
news. Without a doubt it's the dumbest criminal act since Martha
Stewart lied to cover up a crime she didn't commit.
Rand Corporation warned Tuesday that obesity is about to
become the leading cause of preventable death, even ahead of
tobacco. Who's fault is that? If the health police hadn't
made them quit smoking they wouldn't have gained all that weight.
California lawmakers proposed a state constitutional
amendment Monday to give fourteen-year-olds the vote in state
elections. You can't fault the logic. If they're old enough to
testify against Michael Jackson they're old enough to vote.
Michael Jackson learned Tuesday that a warehouse full of his
memorabilia was liquidated because he was delinquent in paying the
storage fees. He insists to every television interviewer that he's
not a pedophile. He's the King of Pedophiles.
John Henry Williams died Saturday and had his body frozen
next to his father Ted Williams in Scottsdale. Red Sox fans smell
a rat. It's rumored that George Steinbrenner agreed to pay the
storage bill if Ted Williams's DNA would sign with the Yankees.
CIA Director George Tenet appeared before the Senate to
explain his pre-war report saying Iraq was a nuclear threat. Teddy
Kennedy was waiting for him. The director prepared for his
testimony by reviewing his Chappaquiddick scrapbook album.
Defense Intelligence Agency chief Lowell Jacoby was fingered
in the U.S. Senate Tuesday for giving Dick Cheney wildly
inaccurate reports about Iraq's arsenal of weapons. The DIA was
originally founded by Robert McNamara to keep the U.S. in Vietnam.
It's touching that after forty years they remain true to their
John Kerry ripped the administration's handling of the
economy and foreign policy at a town hall meeting in Florida
Monday. Everyone in the audience had the same question for John
Kerry that every bartender asks him. Why the long face?
Hillary Clinton said Tuesday she is giving Martha Stewart's donation for her Senate campaign to charity. She's walking away from a chief executive who lied to federal authorities. This proves that it's never too late to turn over a new leaf.
