Moore comedy, less truth - Zach Porter

Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 is a really hilarious film. Watching some of its opening scenes, like the one where Bush asks "anybody want some grits?" I can't help but double over in a fit of laughter. And who could forget song and dance man John Ashcroft gracing our ears with, "Let the Eagle Soar." What a great comedy!

Doing it my way in New York again - Kathy Jefcoats

Well, folks, I am headed off to New York again but this time I am flying. For the first time. Not the first time flying to New York but the first time flying ever. I always think that makes me sound like such a hick but it's true. Someone asked me once, "You mean you've never been on vacation?" I said, "Of course, idiot, I just never went anywhere I couldn't drive to."

Lazlo is a 3-month-old tabby domestic medium-hair. He has been neutered and vaccinations are current.

He's a sweet kitten who craves human attention. For adoption information call the Clayton County Humane Society at (770) 471-9436.
