QUICK TAKES
Spirit of the season not what it used to be

BOOZING IT UP ALL AROUND
News Item: Survey by British
think thank finds that the British drink the most,
the French drive drunk the most and Americans murder
one another the most during the Christmas Holiday.
Ho! Ho! Ho!

IT'S JUST AN ASTEROID
News Item: Small asteroid 2004 YD5,
which no astronomers had noticed until its arrival,
passes within 25,000 miles of Earth the day before
yesterday.

If the asteroid had hit, it would have, at the very
worst, exploded with the force of eight Hiroshima bombs
16,000 feet above us.

So stop worrying.
Ho! Ho! Ho!

GIVE IT A REST
Elton John on beholding the Alps from afar:
"When I fly over the snow covered Alps, all I think about
is the 'snow' that I once took. Somebody once---"
Oh, be quiet.

DOG'S WORST ENEMY
Supermarket Headline of the Month:
"KIM JONG IL EAT'S LASSIE".

The thought doesn't count for much
For Christmas this year, Kevin Kostner, rich beyond the dreams
of avarice, is giving people CDs with compilations of
his favorite songs. A mouthpiece told World Entertainment
News Network that Costner "is recording a selection of
tracks that have sentimental value to him and his wife
Christine because he hates meaningless, commercial presents....
it's more heartfelt than just buying something from a store".

I wonder if he downloads the songs from the Internet for free,

RANK HAS ITS PRIVILEDGES
British princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, daughters of Sarah
Ferguson and Prince Andrew, got to meet Leonardo DiCarpio
at the British premiere of his new movie.'The Aviator".
They were the envy of teenage girls when they got up close
and personal with movie hunk Leonardo DiCarpio.

Fergie, formally known as the Duchess of York, was there
and the four chatted for several minutes.

Beatrice is 16; Eugenie si 14, Leo is 30, Fergie is 45.
