Columbus Day was celebrated in New York City Monday and thousands of Italian-Americans paraded up Fifth Avenue. The famed explorer landed in the West Indies thinking he was in India. This may explain why Italy has never won the America's Cup.
House Clerk Jeff Trandahl said Monday he warned House leaders several years ago about Mark Foley's sexual pursuit of underage male pages. The leaders never should have turned their backs on Mark Foley's conduct. That's what gets him started.
South Korea's foreign minister was nominated to be the next Secretary-General of the United Nations Monday. He has widespread support. A lot of people around the world wanted Bill Clinton for the job but they didn't want to give up junk food.
North Korea announced Sunday it has conducted an underground nuclear test. The American intelligence community was slow to confirm the claim. Every time they think they spot a weapon of mass destruction it turns out to be an article of impeachment.
Chinese President Hu Jintao phoned President Bush Monday and warned him not to aggravate the North Korean situation. China is worried about desperate refugees pouring over the border. They have all their money invested in Texas and California.
The U.N. Security Council met Monday to discuss North Korea's nuclear test the day before. They demanded a return to the six-party talks aimed at stopping North Korea's nuclear testing. The U.N. is still in re-runs until the November sweeps start.
