Toys for Tots Reject
A talking Jesus doll has been turned down by the Marine Reserves' Toys for Tots program. If only the Marines had turned down the talking Jesus doll in the White House, they might not be stuck in Iraq.

Middle East Peace
British Prime Minister Tony Blair says any solution to the Iraq crisis must involve a "whole Middle East" that addresses the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Iran's nuclear ambitions, and the fact that most Arabs are nuts.

Citizenship Quiz
Government officials writing the new U.S. citizenship exam wanted it to be less of a quiz on historical facts and more of a test of the applicants' grasp of American democracy. But since American democracy is a mostly a thing of the past, it's still going to be a history test.

Vatican Summit

Al-Jazeera will launch its English-language network Wednesday, otherwise known as the "BBC."

Katie Goes Shopping
L.A. gossip columnists say Katie Holmes was seen this week buying more than $3,000 worth of lingerie at a West Hollywood store. Okay, so now we know what Tom's going to be wearing to the wedding, but what about Katie?

Tokin' Profs
Two professors at the University of Toronto and at York University have been granted the right to smoke medical marijuana on campus to relieve medical conditions. 45,000 students are pre-registering for their courses this semester in hopes of getting a contact high.
