• So, let me get this straight . . . baseball and softball are no longer Olympic sports, but halfpipe snowboarding is?
  • Lately, every article about Saddam Hussein’s trial describes him as “Haggard-looking”. I thought this was poor writing, until I saw a photo. Turns out, he really does look like Merle Haggard.
  • Doesn’t it say everything that needs to be said about Public Education that attendance is enforced by law?
  • in some of the news stories about Dick Cheney accidentally shooting a fellow hunter, some reporters felt it was appropriate to include a quote from Jim and Sarah Brady. As if Mr. Brady was shot during a quail-hunt and not an assassination attmept. American journalists seem to have completely run out of ideas, and to have completely given up even trying to appear objective.
  • I think it took courage for Steve Martin to attempt to play Inspector Clouseau. I don’t think it was a good idea, but it certainly took courage. I don’t think it’s possible to do justice to Peter Sellers’ work in that role, but if anyone could, he’s probably the one.
  • The more I think about what I would do if I won the lottery, I begin to suspect it would be more trouble than it would be worth. I mean, $200,000,000? What would you do with that much money? I’ll tell you what you’d do, you’d spend the rest of your life answering your doorbell and your telephone, wondering where all the extra relatives came from. Your best bet would be to spend it all in the first week. Debts, gifts, trust funds, charity, tithes, some safe investments, and a nice spread of land where nobody could find you.
