The Miss America Pageant will be televised on Saturday in
Atlantic City. The pageant says the event encourages women's
education by giving the winner a full college scholarship. That's
just what CalTech needs, bulimics who play the ukulele.
New Orleans was warned to evacuate Tuesday due to the
uncertainty over where Hurricane Ivan might land. Not everyone
minded the evacuation order. The jazz community in the French
Quarter never needs any encouragement to seek higher ground.
The Texas Rangers suspended a pitcher for hurling a chair
into the bleachers and beaning a woman Monday. The first rule of
any business is never kill the customer. If OPEC could grasp this
simple concept, the War on Terror would be over by Tuesday.
Downfall is a controversial German movie that portrays Adolf
Hitler as a madman as well as a charmer who seduced a nation. It

gave away Pontiacs to everyone in her studio audience. This could

John Kerry hired President Clinton's former White House
press secretary Mike McCurry on Tuesday. He will be bored out of
