And now for the important news ....

Colin Powell defended illegal immigration on Meet the Press Sunday and praised all the work illegal aliens do. He cheerfully admitted that illegal aliens were all over his house. It just goes to show that your view of slavery depends on where you sit and what cards you hold.
The National Bureau of Economic Research met Monday and announced that the recession ended over a year ago in June. It prompted jubilation in Washington D.C. President Obama just authorized two million dollars in stimulus funds to pay for a Mission Accomplished banner.
President Obama escorted his wife and two daughters from the White House to St. John's Episcopal Church Sunday where the president attended services. His appearance in church was no surprise at all. We're all good during the first few days of our Ramadan resolutions.
CraigsList announced Monday it's closing down its infamous personal ads website on its Internet contacts page which strangers were using to hook up. It's just as well. The Internet is a place where men are men, where women are men, and where children are FBI agents.
Iran released American hiker Sarah Shourd Friday, one year after they caught her hiking in the mountains west of Teheran near suspected nuclear facilities. She denied being a spy, then she addressed reporters in Arabic and Farsi. It's the first thing they teach you at hiking school in Langley.
Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Abdul Rauf argued on Sunday talk shows that Muslims are part of our nation's fabric. He went on to point out that Muslims work on Wall Street as investment bankers. Every time something crashes, al-Qaeda wants credit for it.
Joe Biden told a crowd Monday he's second in line for the presidency, prompting a CBS reporter to remind him that he's first in line, the House Speaker is second in line. Actually Biden's right. Whenever a Democrat is president, Hillary is right outside the door.
Chicago FBI agents thwarted a terror plot to set off a huge bomb Monday in front of a sports bar outside Wrigley Field, intended to destroy the historic home stadium of the Chicago Cubs. The locals are outraged. They've got a lot of great memories associated with that sports bar.
