Paris Hilton's dad Rick Hilton was dissuaded Monday from throwing a huge party in Las Vegas tonight to celebrate his daughter's release from jail. The poor girl. Her whole generation may be wiped out by Baby Boomers living vicariously through their children.
Lake Tahoe was the site of swift wildfires Sunday which burned fifty-two houses on the California side of the lake. Who knows how long those people will be out of their homes. The construction workers are refusing to rebuild unless they get amnesty.
Teddy Kennedy sang a song in Spanish on a Hispanic radio station, where he was appearing to promote immigration reform Monday. It was a drinking song that paid tribute to Guadalajara. The great senators are always thinking three elections ahead.
The U.S. upset Mexico in the Gold Cup soccer finals in Chicago Sunday. The sixty thousand fans there all cheered for Mexico. Disgusted American parents across the country pulled their kids out of soccer and signed them up for a summer poker league.
Hillary Clinton collected millions at a fundraiser at the Sheraton New York on Sunday thrown by Indian-Americans. It's a tricky phrase. Indian-Americans applies to Americans whose families came from India, not U.S. native tribes, who are known as Casino-Americans.
Germany prohibited filming at its military sites of a movie about a plot to kill Adolf Hitler, because it stars Tom Cruise and the government shuns Scientology.

Germany isn't so much banning Tom Cruise as it is declining a drink after sixty-two years of sobriety.
