Apparently So

1. Vice President Cheney will have the electrical device that makes his heart work replaced today.

Is there a pacemaker that can be installed in the soul?
(Oddly, people close to the Veep claim his personality changed after he got his pacemaker in 2001...let's hope the new one fixes whatever went wrong)

2. A man stole a city truck in California and took off while being chased by the police. Tragically, two rival TV news helicopters collided while trying to video the chase. Authorities say they now plan to charge the truck thief with causing the deaths of the four men who died in the crash.

I guess that means we should charge Paris Hilton when photographers following her screw up and wreck their cars too?

Who do we charge with the murder of the more than 100 reporters who have been killed in Iraq. By the reasoning above, there are several suspects.

3. "When I look at today's world I have a worrying feeling about the growth of world disorder," former Soviet Leader Mikhail Gorbachev says.

He also says it's America's fault.

"I don't think the current president of the United States and his administration will be able to change the situation as it is developing now -- it is very dangerous," he said.

Gorbachev also says that this administration is wrong because it doesn't follow the will of it's own people.

We need a Russian leader banned in his own country to tell us that?


Sometimes the journalists can't say it without getting mauled, but cartoonists can lay it right out there.
