Mark McGwire appeared on the Hall of Fame ballot on Monday, sparking a debate among purists. Three-quarters of baseball writers believe he shouldn't be in the Hall of Fame because he cheated. It's why Bill Clinton had to build his own library.
Mel Gibson's Apocalypto comes out Friday about the demise of the Mayan Empire in Central America. It shows human sacrifices. Mayans are thrown off pyramids to their deaths in the belief they will come back as dry wall contractors in San Diego.
Joe Kennedy thanked Venezuela Monday for providing low-cost heating fuel for New England. Gasoline is a nickel a gallon in Venezuela and coca plants grow wild there. It's where Los Angeles Sunday school teachers locate the Garden of Eden.
Congress voted Tuesday to restore the internment camps where Japanese-Americans were imprisoned after Pearl Harbor. It's very important to preserve these camps. Muslim air travelers keep demanding a place to pray without being disturbed.
Danish scientists in Copenhagen Tuesday released the findings of their study on the dangers of cell phone use. The study said years of research found no link between cell phone use and brain damage. Californians just talk that way naturally.
Dick Morris said Tuesday he will bet anyone that if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency she will insist on being called President Rodham. That's catty and untrue. Once she's safely elected she will insist on being called the Widow Clinton.
Jessica Simpson ran offstage weeping at a Dolly Parton salute at the Kennedy Center after forgetting the lyrics of a Dolly Parton song. She was way out of her league. Jessica Simpson can't measure up to Dolly Parton, and she can't sing, either.
