    A Committee composed of Senators Daschle, Clinton, and Feinstein have announced that the rescue of the Pennsylvania coal miners has been repealed, and the miners will, by recommendation of the Committee, be placed back in the mine. The Senators noted the following violations in the rescue process:

    10. Heavy diesel equipment was moved to the rescue site without concern for possible air pollution.

    9. Water was pumped out of the mine without first determining if it was polluted, or providing an environmentally safe catchment area for the water.

    8. Numerous holes were drilled in the ground during the rescue, without first performing an Environmental Impact study.

    7. No effort was made to ensure racial, ethnic, and sexual diversity of the rescue workers.

    6. The Governor of Pennsylvania was heard to "Thank God" during a live television broadcast of the rescue, violating the separation of church and state.

    5. Several people at this public, government supported, rescue mentioned praying.

    4. The trapped miners did not represent a diversified cross section of American society.

    3. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Hillary Clinton were not given sufficient time to make speeches at the site.

    2. The Senate was not given sufficient time to determine whether or not any Republican office holder owned stock in the coal company, thus being responsible for the conspiracy that caused the mine to flood.

    And Number 1: No one mentioned that Al Gore invented mine rescues.

    "Once a diversified group of miners has been chosen and placed back into the mine shaft, the holes will be sealed, the water will be returned to the mine, and the rescue will then be undertaken again, in an environmentally and politically correct manner", the Committee noted.

        Aren't I doing well...


          Meanwhile, somewhere in Eastern Europe...
          On the border of Russia and Poland there's a small forest. Half
          of the forest belongs to a Russian farmer, while the other half
          belongs to a Polish man.

          One day, while out for a walk in the woods, the Russian man comes
          across a wolf caught in a trap. He rushes back to his house and
          calls his Polish neighbour.

          "There's one of your wolves caught in a trap on my side of the

          "How do you know it's one of *our* wolves?" the Polish farmer

          "Well," the Russian replied, "he's already chewed off three of
          his legs and he's still trapped."

              A young couple in Alabama decide to adopt a little Chinese boy, and then they
              decide to learn Chinese. "But, Chinese is very difficult for Americans to
              learn," says the Chinese professor. "Why do you want to learn Chinese?"
              "Well, you see," explains the wife, "we're adopting a Chinese baby. He's
              already one year old and is going to be talking soon. We'd like to be able to
              understand what he's going to say."


                God is telling his friend a story: "One day, Cohen and Levine were
                going--" "Cohen and Levine, Cohen and Levine," the friend stops him
                angrily."Why are your jokes always about Jews? Why don't you tell them
                about the Chinese for once?"

                God is taken aback. "You're right," he says. "One day, Soo Lung Mu and Mao
                Tsu Nu were going to Soo Lung Mu's nephew's Bar Mitzvah....."


                  A lumber jack was rushed to the hospital after cutting himself badly.
                  The doctor told the nurse to prepare a dose of pain killer.
                  "Don't bother Doc, " said the man. "I've been through a lot worse."
                  "More painful than this?" the doctor asked.
                  "I'll tell you about the second most painful accident I ever had. I was
                  working in the woods one day and had to take a tulip so I dropped my pants
                  and squatted down without looking. I tripped a bear trap and BAM, the
                  thing snapped shut on my balls!"
                  The doctor(as well as ever guy reading this) winced and said "That's
                  terrible. But if that's only the second, what could be worse?"
                  The lumber jack replied, "When I jumped up, started to run and came to
                  the end of that chain!"

                      David and Victoria Beckham are please to announce the arrival of their

                      the Alfa.
