"President Bush was in Saudi Arabia to mark 75 years of official relations with the royal family. And 40 years of officially being screwed royally by that family. Did you see the present the royal family gave President Bush? You see what it was? ... A Schwinn. A brand new Schwinn, yeah. That pretty much says it all, doesn't it? He goes over there looking for solutions to the energy crisis, they give him a bicycle." --Jay Leno

Responses to Jim's Email

 

Dear Lisa,

I'm so sorry you had to receive that truly hateful email from Jim in Mass. What he completely overlooks (aside from your wonderful picture-toons) is that there is a very real kind of originality involved in compiling web sources in a certain way. You are doing a huge amount of work for your readers in searching for just the right articles in each category to put on your site - information that will both keep us informed and keep us from despairing as well.

I would be bereft if you didn't do what you do!

Please be encouraged. Keep up the good work. Jim's issues are just that: HIS.

Love,
Ellie

George W and the Kingdom in his Dense Skull
By: Hubert Wilson


Macho man?
Excusing the Vietnam War from which he ran!
Greatness personified?
Absent the truth from which he does hide!
Looking regal?
Only if admiring a homely beagle!
Morally decisive?
Alleging all others to be only derisive!
Notable in all of history -
Incompetence mystery -
Calamity greater than even anything in protohistory!

 


 

 

 


Too Many Max Headrooms

 

 

Television's news networks brought all of their punditry and electronic firepower to the Democratic presidential primary coverage on Tuesday, but left viewers yearning for the simplest of things.

Say, a reporter with a microphone who could walk into a bar in rural Kentucky and ask some voters what was on their minds.
