And now for the important news ....

The White House hosted a science fair last week hoping to inspire teenagers to take an interest in science. It's critical to our nation's future. U.S. test scores in math and computer science are so low that it's got al-Qaeda wondering if it's worth the trouble to destroy the country.
President Obama hosted dinner at the White House on Thanksgiving. After dinner the chef served up blueberry pie, sweet potato pie, pumpkin pie, banana cream pie, cherry pie and apple pie. We used to win wars to inspire children to want to grow up to be president.
The White House was evacuated Tuesday when a small plane accidentally wandered over the mansion. It was just a student pilot in a Cessna. The kid was flying directly over the United States so President Obama was never in any danger of being struck by the plane.
Los Angeles Airport reported no lines at security gates on Thanksgiving Day. It's the only airport where they scan arriving passengers. When you get off your plane the TSA runs you through the machine and if you have a nice enough body you're allowed into Los Angeles.
Tom DeLay faces prison time after his conviction on money laundering and fraud charges Wednesday. He's not through making history. His hot samba number on Dancing with the Stars could make Tom DeLay the first Republican ever initiated into a Mexican prison gang.
The U.S. Mint unveiled the new Abraham Lincoln one-dollar coin Wednesday to honor his many great speeches. He was killed by stage star John Wilkes Booth in the balcony of Ford's Theater. The Civil War had just ended but not the animosity of actors toward comedians.
