And now for the important news ....

Larry King wrapped up twenty-five years on CNN Friday, saying he will do stand-up comedy. That could be fatal. Seventy-five is too old to find out if you're really funny or if everybody was laughing at your jokes just to butter you up for the airtime all those years.
U.S. Army Dr. Terrence Lakin told a Ft. Meade military court Tuesday his deployment order is illegal because he doubts that President Obama is U.S.-born. It's a partisan issue. Republicans believe he was born in Kenya and Democrats think he was born in Bethlehem.
President Obama addressed reporters Thursday to announce progress in the Afghan War. It's all coming together. President Obama recently doubled-down and sent forty thousand more troops to Afghanistan, keeping a campaign promise made by John McCain.
Mitt Romney led all GOP candidates Thursday in a poll of Iowa conservative groups, which includes a group wanting to draft Dick Cheney for president. Good luck on that one. They tried to draft Dick Cheney five times during the Vietnam War and it just didn't work.
Google announced Tuesday it will provide free Internet access in U.S. airports during the holidays. It's a nice gesture to allow travelers to go online. Until now the only way to see something pornographic at the airport was to follow a senator into the men's room.
Bill Clinton said Friday he favors same-sex marriage today even though he opposed same-sex marriage when he was president. Forget the logic. Gay groups won't accuse him of inconsistency because, to be fair, he opposed his own marriage when he was president.
GOP senators forced an oral reading of Harry Reid's spending bill on Friday which was two thousand pages long. It took two days to print. The Democrats brought in Mike Tyson at the last minute to make sure the bill set the record for most number of earmarks.
