Thursday, June 7 in the news......

  • Russian President Vladimir Putin turned the tables on Washington on Thursday by suggesting the United States use a Russian-controlled radar instead of U.S. anti-missile hardware in central Europe. The Russian-controlled radar was built after extensive Soviet cost cuts in the 80's, so it also plays all Commodore 64 games.

  • Law enforcement sources have said that Paris Hilton's medical condition was purely psychological and that she was in peril of having a nervous breakdown, that's why she was released from jail after just three days. Hilton's doctor has said she needs to be put back on the medication she was taking before jail to cure it: cocaine and sex shows filmed for the internet.

  • Reverend Al Sharpton has blasted the justice system for what appears to be favoritism in the early release of celebrity Paris Hilton. The high profile black preacher said he hadn't seen an outrage like this since the OJ Simpson verdict. When reminded that OJ got off the murder charge which he supported, Sharpton laughed and said "Ha ha, whoops, for a minute there I lost my mind, now where was I, oh yeah, famous white rich people are the devil."

  • Prince William has surprised staff at a supermarket when, dressed in a t-shirt, jeans and baseball cap, he dropped by to pick up $2000 worth of booze and chips. His explanation that it was for a quiet night with just his brother watching soccer did not surprise staff however.
