Mel Gibson entered rehab Monday after his drunken anti-Semitic rant. He said the Jews cause all the wars in the world, prompting Disney to cancel his Holocaust television movie project. Condoleezza Rice said that at least both sides are talking.
Tour de France winner Floyd Landis's family said Tuesday they expect his title to be stripped away. It's a week he won't forget. When he won he got a call from President Bush, and when he got caught cheating he got a call from President Clinton.
Tony Blair became the first British prime minister to come to Los Angeles on Monday. Once again he was a victim of bad intelligence. He agreed to speak to the World Affairs Council of Los Angeles, not realizing it was a swingers convention.
Bill Clinton spoke in Seattle Tuesday and slammed the Republicans for favoring ideology over evidence. Why is he a fan of evidence? Thanks to evidence, both he and Barry Bonds will always have an asterisk by their names in the record books.
The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla said Tuesday their scientists are developing a vaccine against obesity. If you've ever seen the beautiful women in that town you wouldn't be surprised. La Jolla is the Spanish word for liposuction.
Celebrity Cruise captain Periklis Petridis pleaded guilty Monday to operating a ship while drunk on alcohol. They should make an example of him. He tested at four times the legal limit and he still didn't have a bad word to say about the Jews.
