In no particular order, here are news items of the day that I find amusing/interesting:
- Trent Lott will be stepping down before the end of 2007--It should be interesting to see who Haley Barbour will appoint in Lott's place. No surprise that Chip Pickering and Roger Wicker are being talked about as possibile appointees. Wicker is more likely, since Barbour isn't necessarily fond of Pickering. Lott can make a helluva lot more money as a private citizen (read: lobbyist), and he's gonna need it to rebuild Casa Lott on the Coast.
- The Hulkster's soon-to-be-ex-wife wants half of Hulk's assets! What?? I didn't even know they were splitting up!! I really need cable so that I can watch Hogan Knows Best. Mike and I used to watch that show religiously.
- Dick Cheney has a heart?!
