PARIS, France, Due to a mix-up nobody
will ever really get to the bottom of, Oprah Winfrey was denied the
opportunity to shop at the exclusive Hermes apparel shop on Paris'
exclusive Rue St. Honore de Balzac. The exclusive shop, which caters to
exclusive customers with high disposable income, is known for it's
elegant, overpriced merchandise."It was discrimination pure and simple"
said Oprah, close to tears. "To think that I should not be permitted to
shopin one of the most exclusive and expensive stores in Paris...it
breaks my heart. To be honest,it was one of the worst things that has
ever happened to me in my life. I won't forget."
Asked to sum up the experience in a word,
Ms. Winfrey replied "castrating."
THE BLEAT GOES ON
George W. Bush criticized the
recent election in Iran, suggesting it was undemocratic in
nature. "Today Iran is ruled by men who suppress liberty at
home and spread terror across the world," he said. "Power is
in the hands of an unelected few who have retained power
through an electoral process that ignores the basic
requirements of democracy."
In a related story, Ali Akbar
Hashemi Rafsanjani, who had been expected to win the Iranian
election, criticized Mr. Bush, saying "Today America is ruled
by men who suppress liberty at home and spread terror across
the world, Power is in the hands of an unelected few who have
retained power through an electoral process that ignores the
basic requirements of democracy."
IRAQ - Marines on an
operation to eliminate insurgents broke through the outside
wall of a building in the small village of Karabila, to find
a torture center equipped with electric wires, a noose,
handcuffs, and four beaten and shackled Iraqis. "It took us
quite by surprise" said Lt. Irwin C. Ackerman, whose men were
leading the operation. "For a few minutes we thought we were
back in Abu Ghraib."
