And now for the important news ....

Mark Twain's publishers agreed to print Huckleberry Finn without the N-word in the next edition of the literary classic. The publishers put up a valiant legal fight. In the end they couldn't afford to pay the royalties to Richard Pryor's estate.
The Weather Channel reports a heavy snowstorm approaching the Eastern Seaboard this week. This is a good time of year to be in Southern California. It was so beautiful in Los Angeles Monday that Mel Gibson unleashed a tirade of pleasantries.
Tucson sheriff Clarence Dupnik blamed talk radio for Jared Loughner's state of mind Sunday. The sheriff called Arizona the Mecca of hatred and bigotry. It's just like a public official to take advantage of the tragedy to engage in local boosterism.
Tucson college dropout and pothead Jared Loughner was arraigned Monday for the parking lot shootings. He was recently rejected by the U.S. Army when he tried to enlist. Straight white men are at the bottom of the pecking order in today's economy.
Tucson shooter Jared Loughner's notebook writings revealed Monday that he wants pot to be the U.S. currency. Sounds like a Baby Boomer's idea. Our work as generation isn't done until Andrew Jackson's portrait is on the side of the twenty-dollar baggie.
Democrat Jim Clyburn said the Tucson shootings showed that House members shouldn't have to go through airport security. Now that's a statesman. The idea has got nothing to do with the shooting but he proposed the one measure that'll pass Congress unanimously.
Jeb Bush told a Republican Monday the GOP must reach out more to Hispanics. He believes that Republicans can't win without the Hispanic vote. He must have been out of the country when the Republicans picked up sixty-three House seats in November.
Dallas Ft. Worth Airport took legal action Saturday to stop a local strip club from opening down the street from the American Airlines terminal. It's strictly regulated. No one is allowed to touch the dancers except the TSA agents who are on their break.
