And now for the important news ....

President Obama cited Judge Sotomayor for her role in the baseball strike. She saved free agency. If not for her ruling, Barack Obama would have to confiscate all that money from the owners instead of the players in order to pay for health care.
North Korea conducted more missile tests Tuesday after a busy weekend detonating nuclear bombs underground and firing short-range missiles. They fired six missiles in two days. Not everyone takes bird attacks on their airliners lying down like we do.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Il's missile launches and atomic bomb test Monday set off worldwide alarm. There was no advance announcement at all. North Korea is such a secret society, not even the Bushes or the Kerrys could get into it in college.
The White House condemned North Korea's missile tests Tuesday. Our options are limited. We could heat up the atmosphere high enough to melt North Korean missiles before they could land, but that would mean building automobiles Americans want to buy.
Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons snubbed President Obama in Las Vegas Tuesday. It's because he demonized businesses that held conventions in Las Vegas. Just because the
president's happily married doesn't mean he has to deprive everyone else of a week off.
O.J. Simpson appealed his Nevada conviction Tuesday saying he did not get a fair trial because his jury wasn't diverse. It was just bad luck. You'd think if you had a jury of twelve people in Nevada you'd get at least two murderers and an armed robber.
General Custer comes back to life in the movie hit Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. He died protecting gold miners poaching in Sioux territory. This is what was known as a compelling American story when only white males could vote.
