NBC removed Keith Olbermann from Football Night in America's broadcast crew on Wednesday. It's a sign that the political winds are shifting. Just a year ago Rush Limbaugh wasn't allowed to buy an NFL team and now the league is granting him his every wish.

Fidel Castro was conciliatory toward the United States government in an interview this week in the Atlantic Monthly. He's got only two months left to get the U.S. Congress to lift the trade embargo. Democrats don't see Cuba as the enemy, they see it as the cigar room.

Las Vegas animal park tourists looked on in horror Wednesday when a lion attacked its trainer inside its fenced-in habitat. The local hotels love to rent these big cats and display them behind glass in the casino lobbies. So far their collection rate is one hundred percent.
