Ford Dies
Former President Gerald Ford is dead at age 93... putting an end to any chances of a pardon for Saddam Hussein.

President Bush took time out this morning to pay tribute to Ford. The two of them had a lot in common, neither was ever elected President by the American people.

Gerald Ford truly was an impressive man; most Fords usually die after 5 years or 50,000 miles.

President Ford will always be remembered for his greatest gifts to the world: federal anti-inflation measures, the Helsinki Accords, and foam-padded tarmacs.

Gerald Ford's death is a bittersweet moment for this country. We mourn the loss of this rare dignified statesman, but relish the fact that no one has any reason to laugh at Chevy Chase ever again.

The Hajj Begins
More than 1.6 million Muslims have gathered in Mecca to worship for the Hajj. Usually to see this many Muslims crowded together you have to go to Guantanamo Bay.

The Hajj Begins II
More than 1.6 million Muslims have gathered in Mecca to worship for the Hajj. In 2005, 250 people were trampled during the ceremonies. Last year, 360 were trampled. This year they're going for a new record!
