This also just in:
Al Gore was in the oval office for a ceremony for Noble Peace Prize winners. Sadly, this nice moment was marred when President Bush had to have the secret service physically remove an unrelenting Al Gore from the Oval Office.

Pourquoi sonne-t-ceci une cloche ?

French President Nicolas Sarkozy pleaded for Parisian rioters to stop their violent attacks; a French leader begging people not to attack? Why does that sound so familiar?

This month marks the 25th anniversary of arguably the most famous moment in college football -- California's miraculous comeback against Stanford on Nov. 20, 1982. Stanford fans remember this as an unfair ending to a great John Elway comeback, Cal fans saw it as a miraculous reward for not giving up, and the rest of us liked it because a tuba player got knocked on his ass.

In fact, the only way that play could have been any better is if the Cal football player also knocked over a banjo player, an entire mariachi band and a bagpiper.

"We've got a piper down, repeat, a piper is down."

(Polite applause for the obscure "So I Married An Axe Murderer" reference.
