Email this article | New York Giants star Plaxico Burress was arrested Monday for carrying an unlicensed gun in a nightclub. He shot himself in the leg to keep from spilling his drink. He lost a lot of blood but luckily John Daly was a perfect match for a blood transfusion.

Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis came under heavy fire Thursday from alumni. They are mortified. He's losing games, he's not getting top recruits and worst of all, scientists just discovered that the English and the Irish share the same Y-chromosome.

Hillary Clinton was nominated Monday to become the country's next Secretary of State. Her job will be to improve America's ranking in the world. Germany remains number one in the poll despite its last two losses, due to their strength of schedule.

Harvard Medical School scientists announced Monday they found the gene that is responsible for the aging process. They said it may be possible to reverse many aspects of aging. This discovery came just in time so people can enjoy a long life with no money.

The Screen Actors Guild asked members to authorize a strike against the studios as a bargaining tool. The studios' first concern is to maintain good relations with the most creative people in the movie industry. It would be suicidal to offend the accountants.

Barack Obama attended the National Governors Conference Monday. He said states face tough choices because many state laws require a balanced budget. If federal law required a balanced budget, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington would have been a prison movie.

It would have taken four hours in a muscle car, but they didn't want to be blamed for global warming when they pulled into the parking lot.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid opened the new U.S. Capitol Visitors Center on Tuesday. He said that thanks to the air conditioning, lawmakers will no longer have to smell the tourists as they enter the Capitol. Ever since San Francisco put netting under the Golden Gate Bridge, people have had to commit suicide in more creative ways.
