BEVERLY HILLS - God bless America, and how's everybody?

Congress agreed to re-open the U.S. government only until the debt ceiling expires in February. It's crazy. If it were an action movie, the closing credits at the end would read, "The Government Shutdown will return next year in 'The Government Shutdown Never Dies.'"

The White House made plans Friday to proceed with the Immigration Reform Bill in the U.S. Senate. The bill is currently in committee. Proponents of the bill say that illegal aliens will do the jobs which Americans refuse to do - jobs like running the U.S. government.

Condi Rice was named to select teams for the College Football Playoffs. She vowed to weigh a team's strength of schedule. Ten years ago, pollsters gave Condi a much higher ranking for going after Iraq's oil rather than Mexico's because Iraq was a tough away game.

PBS Frontline did an investigation on NFL concussions which included neurologists' concerns about head injuries during NFL games. They're falling like flies out there. Last Sunday in the Jacksonville game, 12 fans had one beer too many and fell off their seats.
