NBA Racism?
A new study of NBA officiating found that referees favor white players... which would be disturbing if the NBA had any white players.

Iranian Loan
Iran has extended $1 billion in loans for reconstruction projects in Iraq. But the loans will be called in if the new buildings do not explode by the end of next year.

Cablevision Goes Private
The Dolan family, owners of the Knicks and Rangers, has finally succeeded in its attempts to take Cablevision private. It was the only way to make sure they would no longer have to listen to the shareholders complaining about Isiah Thomas.

No Joan
Folk singer Joan Baez has been barred from performing at Walter Reade Hospital. Looks like the hospital's officials have finally decided to do something to make the wounded troops feel better.

Hamas Plea
Hamas leader Sheik Ahmad Bahr gave a sermon at a Sudan mosque Friday, calling on Allah to kill Jews and Americans "to the very Last One." The U.N. is rejecting calls to sanction Hamas, but promises to be "on the lookout for that Allah fellow from now on."

Touching Moment
This week, a Massachusetts high school welcomed back a 79-year-old World War II veteran who missed his original prom 62 years ago when he was shipped overseas. The fun and nostaglia ended, however, when he was busted while dancing with a 15-year-old sophomore by the folks from "To Catch a Predator."

Streisand Tickets
Barbra Streisand is charging up to $1,000 for tickets to her concert in London this July. Streisand apologized for the high prices, but reminded fans that she's got a lot of Democratic presidential candidates' mouths to feed.

Yankees Fire Coach
With the Yankees suffering from a rash of suspicious injuries, the team has fired 1st-year strength coach Marty Miller. Miller will now return to Florida, where he's expected to make a fortune in health insurance fraud.

Mom's Pay
New research shows that if the typical stay-at-home mother were paid for her work, she would earn $138,095 a year. Of course if she were really paid that much, her job would have been outsourced to China years ago.
