Barack Obama was reported Monday to be buying a thirty thousand dollar diamond ring for his wife. He rides in a limo, travels with bodyguards and now he's buying jewelry. He was sick of hearing that his administration doesn't have enough diversity.

David Gregory reportedly was chosen to be the new permanent host of NBC's Meet the Press. The thirty-eight-year-old was born and raised in Los Angeles. He won the California statewide spelling bee in the Seventies when he correctly spelled O.D.

The Washington D.C. City Council Thursday approved the sale of alcohol around the clock at liquor stores during Inaugural Week. Bars may stay open until five in the morning. In honor of the new president they want to make everything just like Chicago.
