And now for the important news ....

Los Angeles octuplet mother Nadya Suleman got a million dollar offer Thursday to star in a porno movie. The producer wants her to do many of them. The taxpayers of Los Angeles absolutely refuse to allow it unless there is birth control on the set.
Tiger Woods got a hero's welcome Wednesday when he returned to the PGA Tour in Tucson. The stock market rose two hundred points his first hour on the course. The Treasury Secretary should ask Tiger's orthopedic surgeon if he knows how to fix banks.
Charles Barkley was sentenced to five days in jail Monday for getting arrested for drunk driving in Scottsdale. He was smashed. When the officer told him he was twice the legal limit, he thought that the girl he picked up was thirty-six years old.
Michael Jackson held an online auction of Neverland Ranch items Tuesday which included a knight's armor, a painting of him, and his old stage costumes. He has no choice but to leave the house. The neighbors no longer believe it is a junior high.
Attorney General Eric Holder announced the arrests of seven hundred and fifty Mexican drug dealers operating out West Wednesday. The streets are overrun with people buying and selling drugs. They were all rounded up and arrested for capitalism.
President Obama promised Tuesday that his mortgage assistance program won't help undeserving homeowners. A lot of people took cash out of their houses to buy trips and cars and furniture and jewelry. The Price is Right almost went off the air trying to compete with the prizes Americans were winning with their home-equity loans.
US Airways pilot Sully Sullenberger got a huge ovation from Congress on Tuesday at the State of the Union. His constant public appearances are annoying. How many times do we have to be reminded that he can survive a crash and the rest of us can't?
President Obama got generally good reviews on the quality of his speech to a joint session of Congress Tuesday in the U.S. Capitol. His nighttime speeches inspire, but his daytime speeches crash the markets. Mick Jagger can save capitalism if he can just teach Barack Obama to sleep until four in the afternoon like the rock star that he is.
NBC's Andrea Mitchell blamed the media Tuesday for not doing a good job explaining the president's economic plan to America. They've been trying. Cable news hosts think they know how to rescue banks just because ten years ago they were experts on perjury about sex.
The White House revealed plans to pull U.S. troops from Iraq by next year. Fifty thousand U.S. soldiers will be left in Iraq as non-combat troops. Everything hinges on getting the Iraqi government not prosecute them under international loitering laws.
