Gov. Spitzer’s apparent violation of the Mann Act (read it for yourself) reminds me of this terrible old story that I used to tell. I haven’t told it in years, but….
One day an adventurer named Joe found a cove in Africa where
some beautiful, sleek, shiny porpoises lived. Most impressively,
the porpoises talked. It took some doing, but the porpoises
convinced Joe, quite truthfully, that they could live forever as
long as they could continue to feast on a diet of a particular kind
of baby sea birds and as long as the porpoises remained in that
one, rather large cove. The problem was that environmental changes
meant that fewer and fewer of the birds were nesting in that
particular cove anymore. One thing led to another, and Joe finally
volunteered to go catch some of the baby birds and bring them back
to the cove.
For transporting young gulls across staid lions for immortal porpoises.

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
