And now for the important news ....

Triple Crown contender Big Brown's breeding rights were sold to Three Chimneys Farm in Kentucky before the Preakness Saturday. The farm bought his stud rights for fifty million dollars. Only Katie Holmes ever made a bigger bet that a guy wasn't gay.
Jimmy Carter's Habitat for Humanity said it's made good use of the foreclosure crisis. They're scooping up foreclosed properties at bargain prices. Jimmy Carter can't throw the families out fast enough so he can give the homes to deserving families.
Barack Obama blamed his struggle in Kentucky on the influence of Fox News Monday. This is nuts. You know the world is upside down when the Yankees are in last place, the Cubbies are in first place and Fox News is accused of helping the Clintons.
Barack Obama went on ABC's Good Morning America on Monday and warned Republicans to lay off his wife during the upcoming election. They're happy to do it. There's nothing that gets a Republican's blood pumping like the prospect of laying someone off.
Hillary Clinton went to a Methodist church in Kentucky Sunday and got a sermon on adultery. Imagine her bewilderment. It was Trinity Sunday on the church calendar and the last thing Hillary wanted to be reminded about was Gennifer, Paula and Monica.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Larry Craig co-sponsored an amendment letting illegal aliens work on U.S. farms. They have their reasons. She wants to lower food prices and he wants to meet guys who are away from their families and might be lonely.
Palestinian leaders disowned Osama bin Laden's statement of support Monday. No one can believe even terrorists are distancing themselves from him. If they had any initiative they would invite him over for coffee, then turn him in for the reward money.
Hank Aaron gave the commencement speech at Concordia University Saturday where he said he still considers himself the home-run king. He's within his rights. The only reason we are not still part of Britain is so everyone can consider himself king.
