And now for the important news ....

Michael Irvin told ESPN Monday Dallas Cowboys star quarterback Tony Romo must be part black, because he's so gifted athletically. Reaction was swift. It's not going to cost him his job, however he was just disinvited from the Seinfeld reunion.
Michael Richards was caught on tape unleashing a racist tirade against black hecklers in a Los Angeles comedy club on Friday. He violated an unwritten law of stand-up comedy. White guys can't say the N-word and black guys can't say Episcopalian.
Magician David Blaine was shackled in a gyroscope suspended over Times Square Thursday and he will try to escape the spinning death trap today. All his escapes are original. You certainly don't steal this kind of material from Donald Rumsfeld.
Bill Clinton went on the Ellen DeGeneres show Tuesday and talked about his wife's Senate career. For once during an interview he didn't point his finger and turn red in the face and get all heated up. What good would it do, Ellen is gay.
U.S. Airways refused to fly six Muslims from Minneapolis Airport Tuesday. It's time to take a stand. We may have lost the World Trade Center but nothing's going to happen to the Mall of America three days before the busiest shopping day of the year.
Harper Collins publisher Judith Regan lost her O.J. Simpson book deal Monday when parent company News Corp. pulled the plug. She made a fortune on Jose Canseco's steroids book and Jenna Jameson's book on how to make love like a porn star. They are the most successful science textbooks the Los Angeles school system's ever used.
The Homeland Security Department announced Tuesday that beginning in January all American air travelers who leave the country will have to show a passport to get back in. It could actually do a lot to deter terrorism. If there's one thing a terrorist hates more than America, it's the way he looks on his passport photo.
The New York Times reported Monday that Hillary Clinton spent thirty million dollars to beat her no-name GOP opponent. She spent thirteen thousand dollars on flowers. At the rate her friends and neighbors get shot, it really starts to add up.
