“A 41-year-old teacher in Albany, New York, suspended after he got caught giving a 10-year-old student a wedgie. You know where a pervert like that will end up? The Department of Homeland Security!”--Jay Leno
Cheney Shot While at Halliburton
Years before Vice President Dick Cheney
accidentally shot a lawyer on a Texas quail hunt, Cheney himself was on
the receiving end of an errant shotgun blast during a quail outing in New
Carlsbad Mayor Bob Forrest said he doesn't know for certain if he or his twin brother, Dick Forrest, fired the shot during the late 1990s that accidentally pelted Cheney -- at the time the chief executive at the Halliburton company.

Frist's Southern Hospitality
It was with some trepidation that we opened a
most interesting card, which announced on a blue-jeaned cowboy's belt
buckle something called the "5th Annual VOLPAC '06 Weekend" in Nashville
on April 21-23.
Problem was you had to unbuckle the cowboy's pants and look inside to see what this was all about. Seemed a bit too "Brokeback Mountain."

Air Force Website Spills Secrets
Whenever the president travels, security is a prime
consideration. Motorcade routes are kept secret, and premature release of
information about a presidential trip aboard one of the twin Air Force One
planes can result in the Secret Service canceling a visit.
Thus, the Air Force reacted with alarm last week after The Chronicle told the Secret Service that a government document containing specific information about the anti-missile defenses on Air Force One and detailed interior maps of the two planes -- including the location of Secret Service agents within the planes -- was posted on the Web site of an Air Force base.

Texas Returning to Dark Ages
Audience members who expected to see Bill Nye
“The Science Guy” conduct experiments and wow their children received
quite a surprise Wednesday when Nye spoke at McLennan Community
College...The Emmy-winning scientist angered a few audience members when
he criticized literal interpretation of the biblical verse Genesis 1:16,
which reads: “God made two great lights — the greater light to govern the
day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.”
He pointed out that the sun, the “greater light,” is but one of countless stars and that the “lesser light” is the moon, which really is not a light at all, rather a reflector of light.
A number of audience members left the room at that point, visibly angered by what some perceived as irreverence.
“We believe in a God!” exclaimed one woman as she left the room with three young children.
Did you have a good time today?
