important news ....
Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr's famous duel was re-
enacted in New Jersey Sunday on the event's bicentennial. Their
bitter factional rivalry was settled by gunfight. They are
immortalized in history books today as America's first rap moguls.
Alaska hailed oil tanker captains in Prince William Sound
Monday for their perfect records. Last year the pilots had no oil
spills for the first time ever. Only in Alaska do they
congratulate people in Alcoholics Anonymous for not spilling a drop.
Chicago observed the twenty-fifth anniversary of Disco
Demolition Day. Baseball fans at Comiskey Park rioted and burned
disco records. During the primitive days of drug treatment, baby
boomers thought if they destroyed their disco records they could
stop doing cocaine.
The U.S. Senate debated a constitutional ban on same-sex
marriages Monday. It's not enough. The way John Kerry and John
Edwards spent all last week hugging and smiling and tousling each
other's hair, they should also ban same-sex running mates.
Condoleezza Rice said Monday there are no plans to postpone the November election if terrorists attack. That's reassuring. There are rumors if Kerry and Edwards win they will postpone the inauguration until the first really good hair day in January.
