And now for the important news ....

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | The World Clown Association is holding its convention in New York City's LaGuardia Plaza Hotel. Strict protocol is observed. One clown must stay outside the convention hall during meetings so in case of a catastrophe there'll be one left to maintain the Libya policy.
President Obama returned home from a trip to South America Wednesday. While in Chile he paid a surprise visit to a grade-school history class. The children explained to the president the dangers of going into war with no clear goal and no clear exit strategy.
President Obama cut off his Central America trip to deal with Libya Wednesday. He canceled seeing a Mayan temple where they used to throw virgins into a volcano. Today we elect inexperienced presidents and make them choose between a dictator and al-Qaeda.
Hillary Clinton held a press briefing at the State Department Wednesday. She fielded questions on the Libyan crisis with great authority. Her sense of command comes as no surprise when you remember she had eight years of experience as Commander in Chief.
Japan continued cleaning up after its epic earthquake Wednesday. The entire Pacific Rim is on edge after Chile, New Zealand and Japan. Just to be safe, people in L.A. watched Kirstie Alley compete on Dancing with the Stars Tuesday night while standing in a doorway.
Toyota announced Wednesday it's shutting down its Lexus plants in Japan for awhile, which could cut off Lexus exports to the U.S. It's a blow to auto safety. The car's tendency to accelerate wildly without any warning made Americans too scared to text while driving.
President Obama demanded that Moammar Khadaffi step down and allow humanitarian aid into his country. We know how this ends. Every time we ship humanitarian aid to an oil-producing country, the packages are wrapped in a note that reads, Your Oil or Your Life.
Germany angrily pulled out of the NATO coalition against Moammar Khadaffi Wednesday after Obama said that the U.S. would cede control of the operation to NATO in a few days. The Germans declared they want stronger leadership. We all revert to type sooner or later.
