And now for the important news ....

U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney hit a U.S. Capitol guard who
stopped her after she sidestepped the Capitol entrance metal
detector. Lawmakers should have to go through the metal detectors
on the way out of the building. That's when they've stolen the silverware.
San Diego witnessed a massive protest march on the streets
Sunday by Hispanic activists. It was carefully timed. By waiting
until gas was three dollars a gallon, the organizers were able to
claim that everybody walking to work was on their side.
Colorado saw the immigration debate hit the boiling point
Tuesday at Skyline High School in Longmont. The school tried to
mollify both sides by banning the display of both the Mexican and
American flags. It is a tactic known in Mexico as Stage Two.
The New York Mercantile Exchange reported Friday that oil
prices are nearing a record seventy dollars a barrel. Gasoline is
over three dollars a gallon in Southern California. This is what
happens when the gasoline is picked by U.S. workers.
Hillary Clinton co-sponsored a bill Monday to publish a
nationwide database of guns used in crimes. Her motives are
transparent. She's trying to track down the handgun used to kill
the Scarsdale doctor to help keep Bill in line until she's elected president.
Czech Republic officials announced Monday they evacuated one
thousand people from a village near Prague to keep them from being
drowned by the approaching floodwater. It all went very smoothly.
The jazz musicians left the village years ago.
The Ten Commandments airs on ABC Sunday in a miniseries
version of the Bible story. It's a holy time of the year for all.
Last week Christians in Congress experienced the Rapture when they
raised the debt ceiling to nine trillion dollars.
Universal said Monday King Kong made one hundred million dollars in DVD sales its first week out. The movie is a service to humanity. Maybe this time men will learn once and for all that the road to hell is paved with Summer Blonde by Clairol.
