Al-Qaeda was revealed Friday to be plotting chemical attacks on U.S. cities, prompting the Orange Alert. The chemicals could cause brain impairment, lethargy, coughing and choking. In other words, the attack would go virtually undetected in Los Angeles.

Democrats in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee complained Thursday that the White House is ignoring the nuclear threat from North Korea. This may not be good for the party in the long run. The last time the Democrats wanted to attack the north, Richard Nixon scooped them up and rode off to GOP headquarters with them.
LeBron James was ruled eligible by an Ohio judge to keep playing high school basketball Friday. He gets lots of help. Last week he backed his new Hummer into an 88-year-old woman's parked car, and she was ticketed for setting a illegal pick.
