The Mars Rover sent back stunning photos Tuesday indicating
the past presence of water. The pictures show tiny splotches of
blue on the Red Planet. The other theory is that the satellite
dish on the rover accidentally picked up CNN's election coverage.
Hillary Clinton wouldn't say Friday when asked if she will
run for president in four years. She was too busy to go into
detail. When reporters caught up with her she was halfway between
a Bible class and her appointment at the shooting range.
Hollywood was demoralized by the Democratic defeat on
Tuesday. There is just no bridging this cultural divide. Hollywood
views Bush supporters as a bunch of shirtless, tobacco-chewing,
beer-guzzling, Scotch-Irish brawlers, and their husbands.
Colin Powell was rumored Saturday to be leaving as Secretary
of State. Don't bet on it. He's been opposed to the president's
policies from the start, but just the thought of flying commercial
is enough to make him back the next invasion.
Washington D.C. game officials report that coyotes were
spotted last week only five miles from the White House. Wildlife

the fence and not even impeachment could get rid of him.

logs. The public has a right to know who the governor is seeing.
If he's been cheating on us, we should get jewelry.
Yasser Arafat was reported near death in a Paris hospital
this week. Now it's about to get interesting. When Arafat's rivals
got to the hospital they wept like Hillary Clinton did Wednesday
when she heard that John Kerry couldn't be saved.
Howard Dean wasted no time after the election and appeared
Thursday in radio and television ads for Yahoo. He's still looking
for the right catch phrase. Yee-hah didn't work out so well for
him, maybe Yahoo will bring him better luck.
Iran marked the twenty-fifth anniversary of its Islamic
revolution Thursday. The radicals burned U.S. flags and seized the
U.S. Embassy and took Americans hostage. Today it is difficult to
describe the degree to which some people hated disco music.
The Democratic Party buckled after losing the presidential
race Tuesday. The party lost House seats and lost Senate seats.
The good news is, with a record like that, Terry McAuliffe will
never have to pay for another hotel room in Las Vegas.
