the moon. There is much riding on it. Apparently Colin Powell made
a bet with Don Rumsfeld that there will be democracy on the moon
before there's a functioning government in Iraq.
British Airways resumed flights to Washington D.C. Friday
without any security problems. Things had gotten too tight. U.S.
Ambassador to Great Britain William Farish was detained for two
days when he told the customs officer he breeds Arabians.
Tom Ridge relaxed his grip on the throats of air travelers
Friday and lowered the threat level. Today grandparents tell
grandkids what it was like to go through the Great Depression.
Sixty years from now, grandparents will tell their grandchildren
what it was like to go through airports before everyone had their
Senator Tom Harkin endorsed Howard Dean Friday, calling him
the Harry Truman of our time. If you are keeping score at home,
Hillary Clinton is telling Gandhi jokes and Howard Dean is being
compared to the only president who ever belonged to the Ku Klux
Klan. The Democrats aren't giving up the red states without a fight.
Howard Dean was reported Friday to have accepted speaking
fees while Vermont governor from drug firms doing business in his
state. Why encourage these guys? Giving a Democrat money to talk
is like paying a waterfall to go over a cliff.

Pete Rose admitted gambling on Major League Baseball
Thursday and demanded the forgiveness of everyone involved. He

on ABC Prime Time Thursday. It was uncomfortable to watch. At one
point they showed old footage of Pete Rose holding his infant son
in one hand and feeding a loan shark with the other.

NATO troops to fight the Russian Army over an airport in Kosovo

domestic partnership rights. It's bound to be misunderstood.
Normally when one man kisses another man in New Jersey, it means
that the Sopranos are about to lose another cast member.
NBC News dug up tapes of Howard Dean as a pundit on a
Canadian talk show. He said some crazy and off-the-wall things.
Now that we know he was in Canada, there is a lot of concern that
his symptoms may be the first sign of Mad Democrat Disease.
