And now for the important news ....

London cops arrested an American Airlines pilot at
Manchester Airport Saturday for attempting to fly to Chicago while
drunk. It's against the law to allow anyone inside the cockpit
with alcohol on his breath. It's right there in the Koran.
The Iranian government denied stirring up protests over the
Prophet Muhammed cartoons Sunday. The idea of suppressing free
speech in the civilized world is going nowhere. Americans
obviously love political cartoons, we elect enough of them.
Pittsburgh Steelers legend Lynn Swann was endorsed for
governor Sunday by the Pennsylvania GOP convention. This could be
fun. Until now the only candidate to capture the nation's
imagination by the way he ran the fly pattern was Bill Clinton.
The Winter Olympics were criticized Saturday for not having
racially diverse squads. There was evidence of discrimination in
the snowboard events. Officials refused to even consider Marion
Barry's application to participate in the half-pipe.
Democrats slammed President Bush's budget Sunday, saying it
helps the wealthy and it hurts the poor and middle class. It's too
late to play the class warfare card. A revolt of the American
workers would only overthrow the government of India.
Saddam Hussein's lawyers said Sunday Saddam is not planning a hunger strike as announced last week. The idea must appeal to his vanity. If President Bush can compare himself to Lincoln, Saddam Hussein can certainly compare himself to Gandhi.
