Mark McGwire was on the Hall of Fame ballots mailed Tuesday, one year after his evasive House testimony about steroid use. He has paid for his sins. When Congress couldn't get a straight answer out of him, Mark Foley subpoenaed his e-mail address.
U.S. District Judge James Robertson ruled Tuesday that U.S. currency discriminates against the blind. He wants raised bumps on the bills or bills with Braille dots punched on them. Ben Franklin will look like Vladimir Putin was his waiter recently.
Joe Biden blasted Mexico Monday, saying the corruption there is responsible for immigration and drug problems in the U.S. Why bother? You can bash Mexico all day and they can still get the dents out and have it repainted in less than an hour.
Fidel Castro was a no-show at his eightieth birthday celebration at Havana's Karl Marx Theater Tuesday. He's no fool. A lot of his oldest friends flew in to Cuba for the occasion, but you don't stay alive this long by eating with Russians.
