News you can...

...get all choked up about, as society continues to crumble.

Let's start by clicking on the link to listen to the opening minute or so of yesterday's John & Ken show on KFI radio here in L.A. This little musical segment is the best wrapup of the Larry Craig mess I've heard; it seems host John Kobylt and news reader Terri Rae Elmer thought so, too.

Compared to that, the news that Elvira Arellano, the illegal whose pro-border-jumpers crusade was rudely interrupted by a well-deserved deportation, is asking the Mexican government to give her a diplomatic visa so she can return to the US as a "peace and justice ambassador" is pretty tame stuff. According to the Associated Press, she said "What I'm asking for is a diplomatic visa so that I can be an ambassador for peace and justice because I'm not a terrorist and the United States can't continue treating undocumented migrants as terrorists."

Of course she said this in Spanish, as she can't speak English....

The clear solution is: send her to Idaho. Or Massachusetts, both of which raise and nurture the morally obtuse.

In other news, John Edwards thinks Americans need to get rid of their SUVs. All Americans except politicians, that is.

And finally, Jorge Bush made a quick trip back to New Orleans to let the people there know he still cares about what Hurricane Katrina did to them two years ago. This time, he did not say, "Brownie, you're doin' a heckuva job."

See? He's still capable of learning....
