Atlanta Falcons star Michael Vick was fined Wednesday for flipping off home field fans who booed him on Sunday. They were sitting in field level boxes. As if there weren't enough holidays on the winter calendar now we have interracial heckling week.
Michael Richards's publicist reversed himself Wednesday and said the comedian is not Jewish, after previously saying he was Jewish following his racist rant. It was an honest misunderstanding. What the comedian said was that he's become circumspect.
The London Evening Standard on Tuesday raved about a new German comedy movie called Mein Fuehrer. It's about a Jewish acting teacher who is pulled out of a concentration camp to improve Hitler's radio delivery. Every time Iraq thinks it has cornered the market on ethnic hatred, Germany steps forward to take back its crown.
British Airways passengers were tested for radiation poisoning following the murder of a Russian spy by polonium. British Airways passengers are top drawer. They don't mind getting radiation poisoning as long as it wasn't on a low-fare airline.
Ohio election officials considered throwing out all electronic touch-screen voting machines in Cleveland Wednesday. They tried to sell them but they can't. People in California would just pull the curtains closed and vote for the porn star.
Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack made the announcement that he's running for president at a potluck supper in Iowa on Wednesday. His wife brought a cheesy corn casserole to the supper which won a blue ribbon at the Iowa State Fair. To match that, Bill Clinton is working on a grilled cheese sandwich that he makes on the hot plate in his doghouse.
