important news ....
Scott Peterson was recommended the death penalty by a
California jury Monday for double murder. He was so obviously
guilty that no one can believe he was really convicted. People
forget that fishing has a lot less charisma than football.
Bernard Kerik was revealed Monday to have had a secret wife
before his two known marriages which actually overlapped. He then
cheated on his third wife with two women. It's a good thing the
Scott Peterson jury disbanded or he would be a dead man.
Desperate Housewives got a Golden Globe nomination Monday in
the category of Best Comedy. The viewer ratings are great but it's
not making the producer very much money. Most of the revenue goes
to pay royalties to the Clinton Administration.
The Pentagon said Tuesday Saddam Hussein is doing well in
his cell. The Red Cross visited him and was pleased to see he
hasn't lost his touch. He's trained one cockroach to make a
hundred fifty silverfish gather all the breadcrumbs for him.
George Tenet got the Medal of Freedom Tuesday despite
missing the September 11th attacks and imagining weapons of mass
destruction in Iraq. He didn't see what was right in front of him
and he saw things that weren't there. If we really want to make America
more secure we should ban mushrooms from the CIA cafeteria menu.
Tom Ridge admitted his color-coded threat level warning
system isn't working. Still, some of his ideas have been a hit.
Yesterday a little boy was suspended from pre-school in Los
Angeles when he tried to talk a little girl into playing airport screener.
David Boren defended his decision to ban alcohol at the
University of Oklahoma on NBC News Tuesday. The vice has its
upside. Whenever a student went missing they put his picture on
the side of a bottle of Scotch and they haven't lost one yet.
