SpaceShipOne achieved the first fixed-wing flight into space
on Monday. The pilot took it three hundred thousand feet above
everybody's heads. At one point the aircraft spun out of control
after colliding with John Kerry's train of thought.
The Clinton Presidential Library received a donation of
Beatles memorabilia from George Harrison's estate. It's only
right. In a hundred years historians will be arguing whether the
Beatles or Bill Clinton started the Free Love Movement.
Mount St. Helens began spewing ash along with steam Tuesday,
giving geologists hope of seeing a huge eruption. You won't see
the same mistake they made twenty-four years ago. This time the
volcano's agent got it an endorsement deal with Cialis.
Tiger Woods fell to third place in world golf rankings
Sunday after slipping to second the week before. Staying on top

California desert Monday for reaching outer space in a vehicle

Dallas Cowboys coach Bill Parcells told CBS' 60 Minutes he

Dick Cheney and John Edwards held a vice presidential debate
at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland Tuesday. Viewers

stand onstage between a trial lawyer and an oilman.

day. After the game John Kerry telephoned the locker room and
congratulated them on advancing in the America's Cup.
John Kerry talked about stem cell research in New Hampshire
Monday alongside a stage full of seriously ill people. It didn't
have the intended effect. They took one look at John Kerry and
thought that the Grim Reaper had come for them.
Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 was released on DVD to video
stores nationwide Tuesday. He's famous for his negative outlook on
life. When Michael Moore was a child he moved all his stuff into
the basement just so he could be closer to hell.
Baghdad liquor store owners were targeted for death Monday
by Muslim radicals who say selling alcohol breaks Islamic law.
There have been nightly shootings, bombings and arson. The place
