steroids and demanded the commissioner do something about it.
Something is obviously amiss. Yesterday a woman was arrested in
Wal-mart trying to pay the cashier with Barry Bonds' home run record.

that blew out when drillers hit natural gas in Carlsbad. These
things can get out of control. When Dean Martin died he was
cremated and it took Red Adair six days to put out the fire.
Democrats and Republicans began major fundraising efforts

that he plans to raise taxes only on the rich. His own wife is

tough on the rich he elbowed them twice during his speech.
Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter agreed Thursday to headline a
Democratic Party dinner in Washington. They always provided great
release for Republicans. For Jimmy Carter they released the
hostages and on Bill Clinton they released the hounds.
California's former Governor Gray Davis was a hit last week
in his guest stint on Yes Dear. It's good to see that his charisma
quotient is at last improving. Gray Davis is the only man in Los
Angeles that Madonna ever told she has a headache.
Congress protected fast-food chains from obesity lawsuits Thursday. There's more than one way to skin a fat cat. The next day you couldn't get up to the counter at McDonald's for all the lawyers standing around throwing banana peels on the floor.
