Durst: You Can't Make Stuff Up Like This

- Hillary Clinton asked Bill to withdraw his offer to commute the sentences of 16 members of a Puerto Rican terrorist organization. Apparently she discovered one of her great aunts was Puerto Rican in an earlier life.- A team of researchers at Princeton isolated a gene that makes mice smarter. Great, just what we need; smarter mice. We can only hope another team of researchers is working on that whole "build a better mousetrap" thing.- The manufacturer of Beanie Babies announced the entire collection will be retired at the end of the year. Even though he shares their cuddly nature, it is not expected this action will affect Strom Thurmond.- The Clintons purchased an 11 room Dutch Colonial home in Chappaqua, New York, for $1.7 million, after their top fundraiser, Terry McAuliffe, personally secured a loan to cover the mortgage. Wonder how 8 percent plus a monthly vig is defined under "conflict of interest?"- The Paris Hotel has materialized on the Las Vegas fantasy landscape already cluttered with faux replicas of ancient Egypt, Caesarian Rome, Venice, New Orleans, New York, Texas and Mandalay Bay -- with a San Francisco themed Casino soon to come. Eventually every geographical point past and present will be represented. Looking forward to the Calcutta Casino with a rotating stream of losers brandishing begging bowls rimming the entrance. Now known as quarter poker video players. Will Durst was dealt a royal flush once. That was a long time ago.
