May 16 2003 Friday Zelda has returned from Ardmore, OK
... Since we are talking about that thundering sultan
of sanctimony Bill Bennett, high-stakes gambling will do quite nicely. In
eleven books, including the mega-selling Book of Virtues, a PBS cartoon
series on morality for kids, countless speeches at $50,000 a pop, a slew of
op-eds and more face time on TV than the man who squeezes the Charmin,
Bennett has made himself our Cato...
"There's the procedural problem for Bennett critics who hold that private behavior is private behavior and should no more justify the impeachment of Bill Bennett than of Bill Clinton. But we cannot shake off the special animus here. What some critics are saying is that Mr. Bennett is the nation's premier secular catechist of virtue, and that the bigger they come the harder they fall."-William F. Buckley, Jr.
Twin Towers at the Times
Today's cartoon was inspired by Bill Bennett. I took the above photo of Bill on the beach in Biloxi, Mississippi. More photos of Bill in the fabulous Biloxi casinos to come.
Correction notice: I misspelled tentacles in yesterday's toon. I blame Bill Clinton.
WANTED: Spokesperson, Will Train.
"Zelda and Lisa have lots in common but they disagree on some levels, as most, proud liberals are apt to do occasionally. They remain interesting. Zelda loves President Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe and Danny Glover. And Lisa just loves Brian Lamb. She is so twisted. I wish Lisa could be here with us on this trip, but she is busy Being Bill Bennett in Biloxi." - Anita Beer in Gusher's Lounge, Holiday Inn, Ardmore, OK

Oklahoma town sorry to see Texas lawmakers go
Texas Dems End Exile, Declare Victory
What does George Bush have in common with the Texas Democrats who fled to Oklahoma?
They are all members of the Texas AWOL Club. -Lisa
NO WONDER BUSH CANNOT
Lisa, I have a correction: Bush said "subliminable."
Rhymes with criminable.
SUBJECT: Your site
I enjoyed your web site.
I like your wife Alan. Thanks for writing. Prudish Americans aren't allowed to view this site. They're too busy anyway, watching old Jerry Lewis movies just like the French.
Say hi to the Queen for me.
SUBJECT: Your site
DON'T EVER STOP!!!!!
I won't unless Ashcroft puts me in the pokey. -wink-
SUBJECT: The REAL Scarborough Country
I live in Scarborough's old congressional district too. It sucked when he took office and still sucked when he resigned. Your website nailed what we Pensacola people suffered thru under Scarborough. He talked the talk and even safely voted the right way on many environmental issues in a Republican controlled Congress but the bottom line is:
Anyone who doesn't think Joe Scarborough got a pass from the media coverage when that dead aide was found in his office must be living in a dream world. He got a talk show on MSNBC out of his notoriety. Come on. An aide was found DEAD in a recently resigned US Congressman's office and the media was covering that Condit guy instead? Even the coroner had falsified info in his previous job and the Washington Post wasn't interested? The case is cold now. Great novels have been written with weaker plots.
Keep up the unique work and for reporting the facts through humor. I've already decided.
Pensacola Beach, Florida
Within a few hours after returning to the REAL Scarborough Country ( I love your phrase) I was sneezing, coughing and short of breath. Yeah, thanks, thanks so much for Scarborough Country, Joe.

Tell 'em we sent you.
The aircraft carrier Lincoln had a large sign that said "Mission Accomplished" yet Saddam's still missing and no weapons of mass destruction have been found. Apparently the mission was to fabricate a need for a war so that the US could devastate and occupy Iraq's people, seize Iraq's oil and create a diversion so that Iraq's most precious antiquities could be looted.
Zelda Morgan's Mailbag
Senator Lott promised to
"throw himself on the tracks" (to get the tax break back). (CNN-5/15/03)
I love the trains.
Since I used to be a frequent flyer on American Airlines, I prefer the
trains now. I would love to be riding on the train when the GOPigs are
laying down on the tracks.
Where're Osama, Saddam and all those unused weapons of mass destruction? - Lisa
The Omega or Swan Nebula, is located about 5,500 light-years away in the constellation Sagittarius. The image is being released to commemorate the thirteenth anniversary of Hubble's launch on April 24, 1990. The colors in the image represent various gases. Red represents sulfur; green, hydrogen; and blue, oxygen. (NASA)
We should be exploring the heavens instead of Iraq.
