A bit of humor to lighten up the usual gloom and doom of this forum. Most of these are excerpts from late night shows (Letterman, Leno et al)

Jamie

"You read about all these terrorists, most of them came here legally, but they hung around on these expired visas, some for as long as 10-15 years. Now, compare that to Blockbuster: you are two days late with a video and these people are all over you. Let's put Blockbuster in charge of immigration."-Jay Leno

"What we know about Osama bin Laden is this: he's worth US$300 million, he has five wives and 26 kids ... and he hates Americans for their 'excessive' lifestyle."-David Letterman

"The leaders of the Taliban said today that killing bin Laden won't solve the problem. But, you know, it couldn't hurt."-Jay Leno

"More and more details coming out now about [that] spoiled rich kid, Osama bin Laden... This guy inherited $80 million at age 13 and has since expanded it to $300 million through construction, smart investments and gas and oil investments. This way, he can use the money in his war against capitalism." -- Jay Leno

"More and more facts coming out about Osama bin Laden. You know, he never sleeps in the same place two nights in a row. Just like Clinton."-Jay Leno

"This Osama bin Laden guy, spoiled rich kid worth $300 million. I have three words for this guy: Anna Nicole Smith. We send her over there, she'll get his money, he'll be dead in a week." - Jay Leno

"It was reported today that Osama Bin Laden has 50 brothers and sisters. Which absolutely shocked me because I had no idea he was Catholic"- Conan O'Brien

"CBS News finally received anthrax in the mail. As usual, we're number three."-David Letterman

"Things have really changed here in Hollywood. Used to be people in this town couldn't wait to get an envelope full of white powder."-Jay Leno

"I don't mean to harp on this, but it's like the networks are a how-to manual for terrorists. You see them on the news. This reporter is standing outside a water treatment plant, going, 'If they poured the poison here it could wipe out thousands because the guard is off duty from noon until 1 every day!'"-Jay Leno

"The FBI is urging all Americans to beware of any letters or packages that have badly misspelled words. Man, this is going to be terrible news for the rap industry."-Jay Leno

"In Pakistan, anti-American protesters set a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant on fire. The protesters mistakenly thought they were attacking high-ranking a U.S. military official, Colonel Sanders." - Jimmy Fallon on Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update.

"Tomorrow night on NBC, a special episode of West Wing, it makes a direct reference to what happened in New York City. The exact plot is being kept top secret. We are the only country in the world where we put our battle plans on CNN, but the plots to our TV shows are top secret."-Jay Leno

"Now this really annoys me: All these people getting on the Internet and saying Nostradamus predicted this. If Nostradamus were alive today his name would be Miss Cleo and he'd be charging $4.99 a minute."-Jay Leno

"U.S. Government has said they are now going to go after the terrorist's electronic banking system. You know what they should do? They should transfer bin Laden's funds to my bank. They'd mess up his deposits, screw up his statement, and nickel and dime him to death with service charges."- Jay Leno

"People want to say there isn't racial profiling at the airport, but let's be honest. If you first name is Mohammed, and your last name isn't Ali, arrive at the airport extra early."-Jay Leno

"Everybody is talking about finding bin Laden. How about finding Dick Cheney? Where did he go? I think his Secret Service code name is 'Waldo.'" -- Jay Leno

"Eleven members of the Washington Redskins Monday were recently exposed to a mysterious white powder they had never seen before: The end zone."-Jay Leno

"President Bush has urged people to get back to normal, and today Congress announced that they are accepting bribes again."-Jay Leno

The Canadian Prime Minister said Canada would lend the U.S. its full military support. You know what that means: Both tanks."-Jay Leno

"President Bush's popularity is at 90%, the highest popularity ever...if President Bush ran for president today he could actually be
elected."-Jay Leno

Yes, it was..indeed.

What will be less hilarious is when the next
strike will come. The big one. Inevitably.

When our system of freedom will show it is doomed by its very nature. Also inevitably.

And no night show hosts will show up for some more [hilarious] jokes.

Because without power.... TV's don't work.

And everybody will ask: "why the hell didn't
anybody see this coming"?

When we suffocate on our own 'freedoms'....

...we may realize we never had any.

To grant us freedom... from the 'Inevitable'
