important news ....
The Pentagon triggered public fury last Monday when it
disclosed that U.S. military plastic surgeons have been giving
free breast implants and nose jobs to female soldiers. The male
soldiers get something too. They get court-martialed for adultery.
Fidel Castro aired Fahrenheit 9/11 on state-run television
after the movie played for only one week to packed movie houses in
Cuba. This is the last time Michael Moore strikes a profit-participation
deal with a communist. It's enough to turn a guy Republican.
Hillary Clinton went to a spa Friday to rest after the
Democratic Convention finally ended. Last week was a nightmare for
the New York senator. She didn't know if she was awake or asleep,
but she kept seeing Barack Obama and John Edwards go flying by her.
John Kerry's daughters joined him on the campaign trial
Friday. The family stories in their convention speeches humanized
their dad. Everyone left Boston wondering if they can live for
four years with a president who gave CPR to a hamster.
The Democratic Convention ended in spectacular fashion in
Boston on Thursday night. Everybody who watched it came away with
the same feeling. John Kerry has possibilities but his wife Teresa
may be the best thing for comedy since Bill Clinton.
John Kerry presented his case to a cheering crowd Thursday
at the Democratic Convention in Boston. His tone was optimistic.
He kept repeating that help is on the way until he sounded like
Bob Dole manning the phones at the Viagra hot line.
John Kerry opened up about his life and connected with the
convention crowd Thursday, displaying humility and charisma.
Colleagues who have known him for thirty years had one question
after this speech. What does the Devil get in return?
John Kerry and John Edwards went on a Pennsylvania bus tour
Friday to discuss kitchen table issues with real people. Things
got very emotional. Some of the kitchens didn't have a bell chord
and Kerry had to shake his keys to get any service.
John Kerry released a letter he wrote to President Kennedy
in 1963 thanking him for his hospitality at the America's Cup race
off Newport. The president chose to watch America's 12-meter sloop
Wetherly defeat Australia's Gretel rather than stay in Washington
to watch Martin Luther King's I Have a Dream Speech. To some
people calm winds will always be the real race problem.
Anna Nicole Smith denied having stomach stapling surgery
Tuesday to suddenly to get her figure back. She lost eighty pounds
the same week the richest man in America, Warren Buffett, became a
widower. The question is, does she have an alibi?
Illinois Republicans finally forced Jack Ryan Thursday to quit the U.S. Senate race. Last month he said he would withdraw after humiliating sex revelations but his name was still on the ballot. Nobody retires from show business without a fight.
