important news ....
Texas was flooded by storms that dumped twelve inches of
rain on the Lone Star State Monday. It resulted in a lot of
lawlessness. When residents of Austin were told to go to higher
ground, the Democrats moved the party over to Willie Nelson's house.
President Bush personally wrestled aside South American
police who tried to bar his Secret Service agent from following
him into a banquet hall in Chile Sunday night. His aggression was
widely applauded at home. How dare these countries try to stop an
American from crossing a border.
Britain foiled an al-Qaeda plot to crash an airliner into
London Monday. The news startled everyone. Normally when Londoners
see airliners diving overhead they figure its nothing more serious
than Take Our Grandfathers to Work Day at Lufthansa.
Sir Paul McCartney was hired Monday to perform at half-time
of the Super Bowl in February. It's come to this. Popular culture
is so debased that the troubadour of the sexual revolution is now
the family-friendly choice for Sunday entertainment.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday that
cell phones are exploding. The batteries overheat and they burst
into flames. It looks like politicians can stop worrying about the
youth vote and give the seniors the drug benefits they want.
The NBA Players Association blamed Detroit fans for Friday
night's brawl. It's gotten out of control. Los Angeles fans had to
be warned by the public address announcer Monday not to throw
cocaine on the players no matter how tired they look.
Indiana Pacer Ron Artest sounded mentally unhinged on the
Today Show Tuesday as he told what triggered Friday's brawl. It's
sad. Perhaps the toughest time in any young man's life is when he
has to slug somebody because they're the devil.
