Now They Tell Us?
Saudi Arabia foiled a 2003
terror plot by militants who planned to hijack a plane and blow it up over a
densely populated American city, a Saudi official said Sunday.
The official said the plan, first reported Sunday in government-guided Al-Watan newspaper, was for the attackers to transit through the U.S. to another destination so they could avoid applying for hard-to-get American visas required for Saudis. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, said the militants were preparing to execute the alleged plot when it was halted.
Fifteen of the 19 hijackers who attacked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, were Saudis.

Obsessiveís Lament (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Writing verse about Palinís been fun.
But enough! I must know who has won.
Although something disturbs me,
Alarms and perturbs me:
Just what shall I do when itís done?
"And a lot
of juicy gossip on the campaign trail. Insiders of the McCain campaign say that
Sarah Palin has gone rogue. Republicans are complaining that she's not listening
to their advice, she's not taking their notes and she's going off on her own and
saying whatever she wants. And then when the campaign was asked what they like
best about her, 'She's a maverick!'" --Jay Leno

Japan Is Shaking It For Obama
(Reuters) Ė Dancing, singing and playing the guitar, residents in the sleepy
Japanese fishing port of Obama are readying to party for Barack Obama before
Tuesday's U.S. presidential election.
Around 50 men, women and children wearing "I Love Obama" T-shirts practiced hula dancing over the weekend for the Honolulu-born Democratic candidate, hoping he will win the vote and one day visit the town as U.S. President.
Republicans now say that the $150,000 worth of clothes they bought for Sarah
Palin will probably go to a charity. Charity, is that a good idea? Isn't that
kind of counterproductive? I mean, you're going to give a homeless woman your
spare change when she's wearing a Dolce & Gabbana jacket and Jimmy Choo shoes,
you know?" --Jay Leno

One Final Turn Of The Screw
As the U.S. presidential
candidates sprint toward the finish line, the Bush administration is also
sprinting to enact environmental policy changes before leaving power.
Whether it's getting wolves off the Endangered Species List, allowing power plants to operate near national parks, loosening regulations for factory farm waste or making it easier for mountaintop coal-mining operations,...
out on the campaign trail, John McCain called Barack Obama a socialist, and
President Bush defended Barack Obama. But see, again, I don't think President
Bush really understands. Like, he told McCain, he said, 'When you're president,
you get a lot of visitors to the White House. You have to be a good socialist.
It's good manners'" --Jay Leno
