And now for the important news ....

Sen. Barack Obama hinted at a presidential run on Meet the Press Sunday. It would cause major problems for Hillary Clinton. He's anti-war and he's black and he is so charming it would take a DNA test to prove that Bill Clinton isn't his father.
French police admitted Sunday they now face a permanent intifada from Muslim youths rioting in the Paris suburbs. The French blame the United States. If America had not liberated Paris, the suburbs would still be under German supervision.
The World Series had low television ratings on Fox Sunday. The players tried to make the action viewer-friendly. One rundown on the base paths went on for an hour so people in Los Angeles would think they were watching a slow-speed car chase.
Detroit Tiger Kenny Rogers rubbed illegal pine tar on the ball as he pitched on Sunday. Instead of suspending him, the umpire told him to wash his hands. John Gotti Junior got the umpire's name and put him in his future jury foremen file.
San Diego Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman was suspended for four games on Sunday for using steroids. The stuff fills you with rage. Already this year he gave two quarterbacks concussions and that was just with his car in the parking lot.
