The Senate continues to debate a nonbinding resolution that "disagrees" with President Bush's plan to send more troops to Iraq. But there already is a document that disagrees with President Bush and has no real effect; it's called "The New York Times."

Super Bowl Rain
Sunday's Super Bowl marked the first time the game was played in the rain. It was the also the first time the corporate snobs who were at the game had been physically inconvenienced in a decade.

Peyton's Priority
Sunday's Super Bowl victory means Peyton Manning can finally stop worrying about adding a world title to his stellar resume. Now, he can focus on less important things; like learning how to read.

Paying the Fine
TimeWarner has agreed to pay $2 million to the city of Boston for the Cartoon Network advertising campaign that caused a widespread bomb scare. Most of the money will be spent on giving the guys who pulled the stunt a bath and a haircut.

Muslim Prayer for Peace
Over 3 million Muslim devotees in Bangladesh raised their hands Sunday in prayer for global peace. Then, as is the custom in that country, they all drowned in a sudden flood.

Saudi Justice
A Saudi Arabian judge sentenced 20 foreigners to receive lashes and spend months in prison after he convicted them of attending a party where alcohol was served and men and women danced. The foreigners would have actually received the same treatment here in the U.S., because they were all visiting students from Bob Jones University.

Trotter Probe
A New York State grand jury is probing allegations of harness-race fixing at Saratoga Raceway, specifically that horses were drugged with painkilling snake venom and an energy-boosting drug. Investigators became suspicious when they saw Barry Bonds hanging around the stables every weekend.
