http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | The Carolina Hurricanes won the Stanley Cup Monday by upsetting the Edmonton Oilers in game seven of the finals at home in Raleigh. It's the first time the Hurricanes won the annual championship on ice. Al Gore blamed it on global warming.


Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were given a banquet by the African nation of Namibia for having their baby there. What a feast. Their hosts served up forty pounds of prime rib, homemade bread, a bushel of sweet potatoes, and the publicist is missing.


Arizona and Southern California were ravaged by rapidly spreading brushfires along remote ridgelines Tuesday. It was a bad sign. The reluctance to put them out was perceived by Hispanic immigration activists as an escalation of the rhetoric.


The White House offered North Korea food aid Monday if they'll halt all long-range missile testing. The food situation in that country is simply wretched. The restaurants in North Korea have signs on the front door that read Sorry, We're Open.


Washington D.C. buzzed with rumors Tuesday that Scooter Libby will be pardoned by President Bush before he goes on trial for lying in the CIA leak case. It wouldn't be unprecedented. President Ford pardoned Richard Nixon, President Bush's father pardoned all of the Iran-Contra conspirators, and President Clinton forgave himself.


Dan Rather was let go by CBS' 60 Minutes Monday, a year after he was sacked as nightly news anchor. Everyone's going to miss him. For forty-two years Americans have tuned in to CBS to observe Dan Rather, wondering if this is the night he snaps.


Senator Dick Durbin stood on the Senate floor Tuesday and begged Republicans to support a raise in the minimum wage. It's the decent thing to do. Democrats want to raise the minimum wage for every American job by two hundred rupees an hour.


Democratic Senators Evan Bayh and Barack Obama proposed the Responsible Fatherhood and Healthy Families Act last Sunday. It gives job training and tax breaks to dads who pay their back child support. The original title was the NBA Rehabilitation Act.


Saddam Hussein's prosecutor asked for the death penalty Monday in Baghdad. He could be hanged. Saddam Hussein may learn that keeping a lid on a multi-ethnic society in the heart of the Middle East not only broadens you, it also lengthens you.


CBS News said Tuesday Tennessee moonshiners are selling steel drum stills to customers nationwide who want to make their own ethanol. That's how expensive gasoline is. Either way Jed Clampett was going to wind up with forty million dollars.
