Nuclear Jericho


With world attention focused on the nuclear ambitions of rogue states like North Korea, one might assume that the producers of CBS' promising new drama "Jericho," which deals with the aftermath of a nuclear attack, are merely playing on Americans' fears.

"Jericho" executive producer Jon Turteltaub does admit that a bit of real-life worry over an attack helps make the show more compelling.

She often smiles and cocks her head as if she's letting you in on a secret. "It's going to be a great book."






The next Republican National Convention must be held in a giant closet. Every week, there's a new gay Republican outed. I have a feeling that big tent they're always talking about is in their pants! There are so many Republicans in the closet, their symbol shouldn't be an elephant; it should be a moth! -- Bill Maher
