A two paragraph story next to today’s sudoku puzzle

Will help offset a solid month of ill-informed stories presented with maximum screaming on the cable news networks in 2009.

A report issued today by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) finds little to support the charges that led to the demise of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), a grassroots consumer advocacy organization driven out of existence by Congressional critics.

Thank goodness the Administration and Democratic leadership bravely managed not to stand in the way of this phony scandal.

I’m sure the reason the correction to this overplayed non-story will receive so little notice at this time is because another politician has tweeted a picture of his penis.

Oh, I’m sorry that is just Rick Scott. Word of advice Governor, don’t go out in khaki.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
