And now for the important news ....

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Congressman Chris Lee resigned Wednesday after he was caught sending shirtless photos of himself to a woman on Craig's List. The site is a playpen for neurotic men and women. She had advertised for a financially and emotionally secure man, in this economy.
Homeland Security's Janet Napolitano told Congress the U.S. faces a terror threat. She said she tightened airport security to keep terrorists out of the country. If they want to come to the United States they'll have to fly to Mexico and walk across like everybody else.
President Obama approved a role for the Muslim Brotherhood in any new Egyptian government Sunday. It demoralized many in Cairo. Men have begun staring at women in street clothes like it's a photograph that they'll have to remember the rest of their lives.
The White House refuted criticism Wednesday that the U.S. doesn't have a coherent Egypt policy. Our message has been perfectly consistent. From day one the administration has maintained that Hosni Mubarak is vital to stability in the Middle East, so he must go.
Egyptian protesters stood in front of Egypt's parliament building on Wednesday to demand an accounting of Hosni Mubarak's fortune. It's huge. Forbes estimates that he is worth forty billion dollars, but he will have a lot more once his unemployment kicks in.
CIA officials testified in Congress that they predicted the unrest in Cairo last fall, but the agency wasn't able to foretell the protesters' ability to organize using Facebook. How could they have missed it? Every time a rocket lands in Israel ten million people push Like.
St. Louis cops cleared Budweiser heir August Busch IV of wrongdoing in the death of a girlfriend at his mansion. Twenty years ago he was cleared in another girlfriend's death. His attorney just advised him never to try to buy his memorabilia back in Las Vegas.
An Arkansas woman realized her lifetime dream Tuesday when she was permitted to fly a plane at the age of eighty-one. It shows that anything's possible in today's world. A small town in Wisconsin just won the Super Bowl, Charlie Sheen has ten days of sobriety, and the dictator of Egypt is being rescued from overthrow by the American Israel lobby.
