Hollywood takes on Big Oil Tuesday in a California ballot measure that would produce alternative fuels by taxing all oil produced in California. That figures. Everywhere else oil is drilled or refined but in Los Angeles everybody's a producer.
Universal on Monday released the first season of NBC's Saturday Night Live on DVD. It was thirty years ago. The show's cast spent the entire season making fun of President Jerry Ford, never dreaming that his wife would save most of their lives.
U.S. Congressman Charlie Rangel called Dick Cheney a son of a bitch Monday for ripping Democrats. He's a decorated Korean War hero. Only a guy who's held off the Chinese Army would say that to the vice president on the opening day of hunting season.
Michael Jackson announced Monday he will leave Dubai for London in two weeks to appear at the World Music Awards. It's best he stays overseas. He's better off staying in countries where they are not bothered by his congressional tendencies.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Il agreed Tuesday to return to the six-party peace talks. The luxury import ban worked. Once you cut off their cognac and little blue pills, dictators start to lose their competitive edge over the junior officers.
NASA chief Michael Griffin said Tuesday the Space Shuttle Discovery will fly to the Hubble Telescope to make adjustments. Ten bucks says they're going to aim it at earth. You knew that warrantless wiretapping wasn't going to be the end of it.
