Major League Baseball announced a new policy on steroid
testing Tuesday that would banish third-time offenders. The
wording is expected to be airtight. The commissioner has just
hired the Pete Rose family to examine the policy for loopholes.
Texas grapefruit growers reported a bumper crop Tuesday with
high prices due to Florida's hurricane destruction. Growers say
the larger the size, the better the price. In Los Angeles, that's
the philosophy which has built seven movie studios.
Bill O'Reilly insisted Monday that his invitation to al-
Qaeda to attack San Francisco was satire after the word got around
about what he said. An investigation is underway. They're looking
for the person in San Francisco who was watching Fox News.
Congress voted Tuesday to name the Ellis Island Immigration
Center library after Bob Hope. The comic was America's most famous
immigrant. He left England at an early age, just as soon as he was
old enough to realize they already had a king.

For the last two months New Orleans residents have been cheerfully rebuilding the Mardi Gras headquarters. The most insane thought that ever goes through an alcoholic's mind is that next time it is going to be different.
