SPECIAL ALERTS!!! Two more web sites now running my material. The first is Enduring, and the second is The Fake They are both sites that use longer-form stories like "The Onion."

Enduring Vision Links: Article #1 &
Article #2

The Fake News Link: Article

Barbie's Clothes
Mattel is coming out with the "Barbie" line of clothing for adult women later this year. But the idea of offering Barbie's style to real women isn't really new; plastic surgeons have been selling the doll's fake boobs for years.

GOP Convention
New York City is making several changes in order to help visiting Republicans feel more comfortable during this summer's GOP convention. Those changes include suspending parking rules, freeing up hotel rooms, and instituting a "don't ask, don't tell" policy on Broadway.

Puerto Rican Day Parade
Hundreds of thousands of people jammed the streets of New York yesterday for the Puerto Rican Day parade. The revelers celebrated
Puerto Rican heritage, music, and the fact that J. Lo and Mark Anthony's marriage has lasted more than a week

Campaigns Resume
The memorial week for President Reagan is over, but millions of Americans still have the late leader in their thoughts. That's because now that the presidential campaigns are resuming, most Americans are wishing they were dead too.

Clinton Book Tour
Former President Bill Clinton's plans to endorse John Kerry on his book tour this summer raises some ethical questions. But Democrats aren't worried that any campaign finance laws will be broken since the principal purpose of each Clinton appearance will obviously be selling his book and checking out hot chicks.

Supreme Court on the Pledge
The U.S. Supreme Court preserved the phrase "one nation, under God," in the Pledge of Allegiance today. The justices unanimously reasoned that Atheists could not challenge the patriotic oath while sidestepping the fact that 99% of American school kids can't remember any of the other phrases in the pledge either.

Lakers on the Brink
Despite 36 points and 20 rebounds from Shaquille O'Neil, the L.A. Lakers lost Game 4 of the NBA Finals last night, 88-80. Usually Shaq doesn't work this hard in a losing cause unless he's trying to memorize the lines in one of his movies.
