And now for the important news ....

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, received her own coat of
arms Sunday which includes a boar, a lion and a crown. Officials
said Queen Elizabeth took a keen interest in the design. She wrote
the pre-nuptial agreement that's printed on the back.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was a huge hit
Friday. Reviewers warn that kids may cry from a plot twist that
seems gratuitously dark. There's simply no reason for Pauly Shore
to enroll in Hogwarts Academy to try to get his magic back.
Bill Clinton began a six-nation tour of Africa Sunday to
deliver cheap AIDS drugs. He's a leader in this. Twenty years ago
when the AIDS epidemic frightened most Americans into a monogamous
relationship Bill Clinton was a profile in courage.
Hurricane Emily slammed into the coast of Mexico Sunday. It
shut down oil wells and offshore rigs. Gasoline prices shot up so
high they pushed the International Space Station back up into the
correct orbit and now we don't need the space shuttle.
American skateboarder Danny Way leaped over the Great Wall
of China last week on his skateboard. He did a complete spin above
the wall and landed on all four wheels. It's a perfect way for
Mexicans to land in San Diego without anybody noticing.
Whirlpool made a two-billion-dollar offer to buy Maytag
Tuesday. The Justice Department is aware of the anti-trust
possibilities. As soon as Whirlpool has the Maytag repairman on
the payroll they are going to put him to work fixing prices.
