HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody?

American Airlines began charging extra for earlier seating in coach Monday. It just never ends. Last night a guy went online thinking about booking a flight on American and they charged him one hundred dollars for thinking about booking a flight.

President Obama scheduled a speech marking the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq Sunday. The same day the Pentagon said tribal warfare may keep U.S. troops in Iraq many years. It has Americans admiring salmonella for at least having an exit strategy.

George W. Bush was urged Sunday to help President Obama and back the Ground Zero mosque. The street protests are getting larger and angrier every day. The mosque has replaced Puerto Rican Independence Day as the biggest goldmine of police overtime.

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren agreed to divorce terms in Florida Monday. This may help him start winning again. It'll be so much easier for him to concentrate on each golf shot now that he doesn't have $200 million to worry about.

Elin Nordegren Woods petitioned the court to change her name after her divorce decree Monday. He cheated on her with 18 women. She feels the Woods name is too humiliating so she is asking the court to change her name legally to Elin Gibson.

Ground Zero mosque Imam Feisal Rauf said Tuesday America has more Muslim blood on its hands than al-Qaida has U.S. blood on its hands. This is all because of the war in Iraq. All that blood would be on Saddam Hussein's hands if we hadn't fired him.
