THEY FIRED SUPERMAN!
Inspector General, Clark Kent Irvin may actually be Superman. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) distributed about $1.5 million in individual cash awards to 88 executives during 2003, making its average award more than any other agency's average award to executives, according to his report.
You see, boys and girls, the Inspector General's job is oversight, and he is apparently good at it.
Having told his bosses (the President, Vice President, etc.) of the irregularities in Homeland Security funds being spent by the TSA, Mr. Irvin was given the present of never having to report to work again after January 20, 2005.
right, boys and girls, THE PRESIDENT FIRED
There is no truth to the rumor that, for a parting gift, Clark Kent Irvin received a pocket watch made of kryptonite.
THE RULE OF THE DAY
In Plano, TX, Jonathan Morgan, an elementary school teacher was allowed to distribute and share the religious origin of the dreaded "Christmas Candy Cane" with his students after first being told he could not due so. It seems that the Thomas Elementary School was sued by those who want to allow the teacher to express his "First
Amendment Rights" to his students.
The plaintiffs are represented by the Liberty Legal Institute, a Texas-based advocacy firm dedicated to protecting "religious freedoms and First Amendment rights for individuals, groups, and churches," according to their Web site.
The problem here is that just a year ago families sued to make sure that Harry Potter wasn't read to these same students because it promoted the Wicca religion.
Someone please give me a list of religions that fall under the First Amendment and those that don't.

Stupid Quote of the Day
"Overwhelmingly, from the grass roots of the party, the feeling is `Don't give up. Keep fighting,'"
-Nope, this isn't the quote of any Democrat in Ohio.
-Nope, this isn't any Democrat who fights for the rights of every American to have his or her vote counted.
-This is the voice of Chris Vance, the Washington State Republican Party Chairman, after all votes were actually counted in Washington State. Democrat Christine Gregoire defeated the favored Republican Dino Rossi in what one might call a "fair and balanced" recount.
