And now for the important news ....

Marie Antoinette, directed by Sofia Coppola, had its world
premiere Tuesday at the Cannes Film Festival. The Democrats are
already one-upping each other. Al Gore's movie no sooner opens
before a movie about Hillary Clinton steps all over it.
The Country Music Awards was hosted by Reba McIntyre on
Tuesday night in Las Vegas. It had two problems. An awards show is
not the place to issue a public health warning, and you cannot
catch the bird flu from listening to the Dixie Chicks.
Al Gore gave a speech on global warming at the National
Geographic auditorium in Washington Friday evening. He spoke in
the usual drone. By the end of his show he had the entire audience
flapping their arms like chickens and quacking like ducks.
U.S. Congressman William Jefferson of Louisiana was caught
Sunday with ninety thousand dollars cash in his Washington D.C.
freezer. His career is over. It's considered arrogant and out of touch
to show off a working refrigerator when you represent New Orleans.
President Vicente Fox spoke to Mexicans in Utah Wednesday. He expects the U.S. to give them education, health care and jobs in exchange for Mexico's friendship. That's the price you pay for having a place to shoot Girls Gone Wild videos legally.
