"This week the Bush administration begins testing a new program called 'The Registered Travels Program' which allows people to avoid long security lines at airports by paying an extra fee and agreeing to a background check. Boy that's a great idea, a separate line for rich people! It's hard to believe the Republicans came up with that. I'm stunned." -Jay Leno
Did Limbaugh cheat on ANOTHER wife?
By Jackson Thoreau - DC Indymedia
…Here’s a conservative who often harps on "family values," who once called himself "your epitome of morality of virtue, a man you could totally trust with your wife, your daughter, and even your son in a Motel 6 overnight." Then he goes through almost as many wives as the Gabor sisters did husbands, admits he watches pornography and doesn’t even father a child….

I often think that with all the sanitized news coming out of Iraq
and with all the movies showing "the good guys" always winning
and with no real perception of what war is really like, Americans are
left to imagine what is going on in Iraq. Here's a Korean reporter's view
that may help you better understand what our troops have to put up with daily.
You can bomb the world to pieces;
You can not bomb the world to peace.
"According to a new poll, 53 percent of Americans say the war in Iraq was not justified. The other 47 percent say, 'There's a war in Iraq?'" —Jay Leno

"The State Department released a memo saying that terrorism has gone down. And so it turns out the only reason they released that statement was because of a mathematical error. Apparently terrorism hasn't really gone down at all. It was only released because of a mathematical error. Mathematical error? Isn't that how Bush became president in the first place?" -David Letterman

Your lead picture caption for today's (June 14) issue says.........."I need some uplifting news from home, Sarge. This war is hell."
The poignancy of the caption is lost unfortunately because the two "American" looking men in the picture are not soldiers. They are most likely private security contractors from KHAKI who are being paid HUGE salaries by Halliburton, General Electric, and other profiteering companies in Iraq.
I read your page as often as possible. Humor is hard to find these days.
Good catch Ron!

Hi, Lisa, as much as I hate to defend Barbara Bush, the suit she wore
at the funeral service was a summer mourning color, so she did comport
to Miss Manners and Emily Post-for once. Keep up the good work!
I wonder why Babs was the only woman in attendance to do so? I would have worn black to a president's funeral.
Thanks for writing.
