And now for the important news ....

Willie Nelson performs Jamaican reggae music in a new album
he released last week which displays a cannabis plant on the
cover. Willie Nelson is feeling much better ever since he got the
marijuana patch. It's in his back yard.
Wedding Crashers is a hit about two Washington D.C. lawyers
who crash weddings to seduce vulnerable bridesmaids. The movie's
message is clear. Democrats can relax and be themselves now that
the special prosecutors are picking on Republicans.
Colombia offered Sunday to buy up the coca harvest to
eradicate cocaine. Farmers would then vow never to grow coca
again. Masterpiece Theater can't compete with some of the plays
that are staged when the U.S. Congress is debating the foreign aid bill.
The Secret Man by Bob Woodward is a best-seller about FBI
official Mark Felt, who admitted leaking Richard Nixon's
involvement in Watergate. The scandal is quaint by later
standards. Mark Felt claims he was Deep Throat and all he ever
blew was the whistle.
Democrats demanded Friday that Karl Rove get fired for
outing a CIA agent to the media. It's nuts. The CIA blames the
White House, the White House blames the media and the media just
wants to know when they get their one phone call from jail.
The Weather Channel last week attributed the nationwide heat
wave to global warming. It sounded partisan. You got the feeling
the weatherman was a Democrat when he said the new weather pattern
will feature colder winters and Hooter summers.
Al Gore told the New York Times he used to call Johnny
Carson for his advice on delivering jokes. He said Carson told him
not to talk until the crowd stops laughing at him. This explains
why he hasn't issued a public statement in five years.
The New York Assembly is debating a bill to require a
minimum wage for stand-up comics. They don't know club owners. If
a minimum wage law is passed the only comedians working in New
York will be wearing prison uniforms and speaking Chinese.
