important news ....
Wall Street exhaled Monday after oil prices hit fifty-three
dollars a barrel last week. The price at the pump is through the
roof in Los Angeles. In Beverly Hills you can't even get into the
Chevron Station unless your name is on the list.
The Episcopal Church suffered schism Monday as forty
parishes in New England split from the national church. It's over
last year's ordination controversy. The reason Episcopalians are
lousy at chess is because we can't tell a bishop from a queen.
John Kerry repeated his plans Monday to raise taxes on the
rich and spend the money on health care. It opens him up to
charges of trying to incite class warfare. If Democrats had their
choice, the America's Cup would start a mile above Niagara Falls.
Mohammed al-Zarqawi joined forces with Osama bin Laden
Monday and merged his Iraq terrorist group al-Islam with al-Qaeda.
This is great news. If the AOL Time Warner merger is any guide the
new terror network will self-destruct in about a year.
Governor Jeb Bush announced Monday he won't run for president in four years. Reaction was predictable. Everyone enjoyed the same gentle and understanding laugh they have every time Prince William tells reporters he doesn't want to be king.
