Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream co-founder Ben Cohen is touring
the country ridiculing President Bush as a liar. The conspiracy is
suddenly clear. One look at Michael Moore and you know he wouldn't
risk his career for anything short of free ice cream.
John Edwards was slammed by Republicans Saturday for the
millions he made as a trial lawyer. No one denies it's lucrative
work. The three richest men in show business are Steven Spielberg,

Playboy released a video game that lets you play Hugh
Hefner in the Playboy Mansion. In this game, the more money you

Bill Clinton said he accepts the findings of the September
11th Commission released in Washington Thursday. He was in fine
form throughout a cheerful early morning press briefing. Bill
Clinton seldom wakes up grumpy, he generally lets her sleep in.
Greece asked NATO Thursday for a presence in Athens in case
the Olympics are attacked by al-Qaeda. Everyone's skills can be
utilized. The U.S. will provide the armor, Britain the air cover,
Germany the street patrol, and France the evacuation.
The West Nile Virus made a deadly appearance in Southern California Thursday, causing many to stay indoors. It's a fluke that it was diagnosed. Any disease that inflicts listlessness and brain damage could go undetected for years in Los Angeles.
