The rebuilding effort in tornado-ravaged Greensburg, Kansas, likely will be hampered because some much-needed equipment is in Iraq, said that state’s governor.
"The Democrats' problem isn't that they're calling for timetables. It's that they're calling them timetables. You're up against Bush and the Republicans, you got to bring some zing. Don't call them timetables. Call them ... patriot dates ... freedom deadlines ... glory goals. What decent, patriotic American wouldn't stand behind a glory goal?" --Jon Stewart
Somebody is Lying
As for the Iran-contra scandal, the excerpts released on Tuesday show the president denying any knowledge. “It is complete fiction,” he said of a tape delivered to the Tower Commission, which the president had appointed to investigate the scandal. According to a diary entry on Feb. 11, 1987, the tape recorded Lt. Col. Oliver North saying that he had met with the president at Camp David, and that the president “was willing to go all out with arms deliverys in order to get our hostages back & I wanted Iran to win the war.”

A Justice Department prosecutor, lobbyists and military officials are among the clients of a Vallejo woman accused of a running a prostitution ring in the nation's capital, ABC News reported Friday night in a highly anticipated program resulting from its analysis of phone records of the alleged "D.C. Madam."
"Right now, Washington, DC, is in the grips and throws of a big prostitution ring sex scandal. High-powered politicians going to visit prostitutes. The call girl agency had a slogan. The slogan was 'We take care of you below the beltway'" --David Letterman

Imus In The Mourning
Imagine fired radio host Don
Imus, from the witness stand, unloading on CBS Radio executives in a
no-holds-barred battle over whether the one-time shock jock can collect the rest
of his $40 million contract — and another $80 million in damages.
Now hold that thought, because it might never happen. A settlement between the warring sides is more likely than a courtroom showdown to resolve Imus’ five-year deal with CBS Radio, legal experts predicted Friday.
