And now for the important news ....

Lance Armstrong won the Tour de France Sunday for the
seventh time, prompting Bill Clinton to give him a congratulatory
call. He never lost a race despite his career-threatening
testicular problems. Lance Armstrong also has an inspiring story.
New York police said Sunday young Arab men won't be profiled
at subways. Next in line for profile exemption will be women,
gays, blacks, Latinos and Italians. Prince Charles is coming to
New York City in September, perhaps they can arrest him.
Wedding Crashers angered veterans groups Tuesday over a
scene where two guys wear fake Purple Hearts to pick up rich
chicks. It proves one thing. At least one Hollywood screenwriter
was paying attention to the presidential race last year.
Supreme Court nominee John Roberts refused to say Monday
whether or not he's a member of the conservative Federalist
Society. No one cares. Baby Boomers are simply overjoyed to hear
people on television constantly saying that fifty is young.
Hillary Clinton on Sunday demanded an end to outsourcing
jobs overseas. This is a good issue for her. Something must be
done to save union jobs in the rust belt before the Cleveland
Indians end up with a team payroll of ten thousand rupees.
President Bush on Monday named Richard Jones to be U.S.
Ambassador to Israel. The appointment is a novel idea. It's just
like President Bush to send a Protestant to try to get the Jews
and Muslims to settle their differences like good Christians.
