important news ....
The Treasury Department took in its annual tax haul Thursday
as deadline day passed. The Democrats say we live in a great
country and we should pay our taxes with a smile. Willie Nelson
tried that one year but the government insisted on cash.
The Los Angeles Lakers were favored Tuesday to win the NBA
playoffs. They run from April to June. The playoffs must be over
by Father's Day, when NBA players traditionally sit around the
house, relax, and take calls from all over the country.
John Kerry offered Wednesday to grant free college to young
people who agree to do community service. Great idea. If people
got free education every time they did community service there
would be seven Dallas Cowboys on the Supreme Court.
John Kerry read to pre-schoolers Wednesday and had to be
told twice to turn the book around so the kids could see the
pictures. It's bad. If John Kerry can't read to a bunch of children
how will he ever give a State of the Union address to Congress?
CIA Director George Tenet defended his record Wednesday
before the September 11th Commission. He said the CIA gives the
American people a very good bang for the buck. Americans certainly
heard the bang but the buck is still being passed.
The CIA admitted Tuesday it knew al-Qaeda wanted to hijack airliners in the summer of 2001. The agency decided not to recommend any passenger screening measures at the nation's airports. They were afraid if they offended any Arabs the Saudis would feel insulted and we might end up paying two dollars per gallon for gasoline.
