And he was the perfect guy to offer up expert testimony. * Q. What do you call Al Gore leaning on a podium? A. A wood pile.* The good news is Whoopi Goldberg is going to host the Oscars. The better news is production on "Hollywood Squares" will shut down for at least a week.* The city of Los Angeles has limited gun purchases to one a month. I wonder if you can get a waiver if you can produce a note from your principal.* During the Impeachment proceedings, Congress kept saying they were voting their conscience.

It will be repackaged and re-released at a higher price.* In Washington DC, a mayoral assistant used the word "niggardly" in front of people who didn't know what it meant, were offended, and forced him to resign.
