And now for the important news ....

Prince William piloted a military helicopter on a daring rescue mission Friday and swept a stricken hiker off a mountainside during a snowstorm. He flew the mission a day after he got engaged. The poor guy doesn't want to get married any more than his father did.
St. Louis was named the most dangerous place in America in a survey released this Monday. The Gateway City headed a top-five list that nobody wants to make. The other four scariest places on this survey were Detroit, Flint, Southside Chicago, and the dentist.
Mexico City hosted a climate change conference on Sunday ahead of next week's U.N. Climate Change Conference in Cancun. This month's weather has been crazy. Two weeks ago it was so hot in Los Angeles that the Octomom agreed to get spayed for a Klondike bar.
Sarah Palin seized the lead in the GOP polls for president Monday. Since the election Barack Obama has prayed at St. John's Episcopal, a Hindu festival, the world's largest mosque and at Big Buddha in Japan. That's what it took to get Sarah Palin in the GOP lead.
Wesley Snipes was sent to jail for tax evasion Thursday, prompting many taxpayers to fess up. One guy in Arizona just mailed the IRS six hundred dollars he underpaid on his taxes, saying he couldn't sleep at night. He said if he still can't sleep he will send the rest.
Donald Trump told reporters on Monday he's still considering running for president in two years as a Republican. Is he eligible? Any schoolkid will tell you that the silkworm is indigenous to Asia so there's no way Donald Trump's hair was born in the United States.
The Energy Department reported Monday that truck drivers are driving drunk while hauling nuclear weapons across the country. The drunker the better. When you hit a pothole while transporting a nuclear bomb, the last thing you want to realize is the danger you're in.
North Korea's Kim Jong Il showed off his nuclear enrichment plant Sunday. The U.S. may give nuclear weapons to Japan to help keep North Korea and China in line. The thinking is, now that we've duplicated the Great Depression, maybe we can duplicate the exact same conditions that led up to World War II which got us out of the Great Depression.
