http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Michael Jordan gave an interview to CBS' 60 Minutes Sunday night in which he adamantly denied that he has a gambling problem. He said he has a competitiveness problem. It's everybody favorite joke at Gamblers Anonymous and he tells it so well.


Michael Jordan was interviewed by CBS' 60 Minutes Sunday and insisted he does not have a gambling problem. He can deny his sickness all he likes but nobody beats the house odds. Al Gore was the only American ever to quit while he was ahead.


The Simpsons TV show was introduced to Mideast countries on Arab stations Sunday. It is edited for cultural reasons. Homer is named Omar, he drinks soda instead of beer, and the nuclear power plant where he works is disguised as a baby milk factory.


Bill Clinton spoke in Toronto and Calgary last week to huge crowds who paid a thousand dollars apiece to see him. He loves going to Canada. They agree with his social philosophy up there and it gives him a chance to see his old war buddies.


Bill Clinton announced Thursday he will join with the Nickelodeon TV network in a new campaign to persuade kids to eat healthier foods. Is this a good idea? The last time he told a young person what to put in her mouth all hell broke loose.


Al Pacino was honored for his career at a banquet in Beverly Hills Friday. He's played a mobster, a mayor, a revolutionary, a cokehead, a sex addict and the devil. For thirty years the Democratic nomination for president has been his for the asking.


Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan said glowing things Monday about his replacement, Ben Bernanke. He's not retiring by any means. Today Alan Greenspan receives the Harry S. Truman Medal for Economic Policy and with this award generally comes a lucrative modeling career.


The London Times reported Monday that a dead parrot turned up in Britain with the bird flu virus. The same day, a dead duck in Sweden showed the same thing. This is the first Thanksgiving where Americans will pray after they eat the turkey.


ABC's Commander in Chief show was accused of being a fantasy Hillary presidency by conservatives on Monday. That may be true. In next week's episode, global warming threatens to break up the ice shelf, but she and her husband manage to stay together for the sake of their careers.


Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers was endorsed by Texas lawyers Monday. It is true that some lawyers are ruthless, amoral, greedy and dishonest. However, it's very unfair to judge an entire profession by a few hundred thousand bad apples.
