Lucky president. I wish I could get rid of my troubles just by handing them over to the Iraqis. One problem I would hand over to the Iraqis would be the Rev. Sun Myung Moon. You remember Moon, right? Convicted of tax fraud and conspiracy to obstruct justice, performer of mass weddings, demander of total allegiance, man at the heart of Koreagate influence-peddling probe in the mid-'70s, and so on. And now several members of Congress, including our own Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, have just crowned him king.

Don't like the weather? Wait a billion years The good news is that Earth is going to end. The bad news is that it's not going to happen for another 1.1 billion years, or roughly about the time that Britney Spears is eligible to vote. I know this because I read USA Today, America's only nondepressing newspaper. Last week it had a story about the end of the planet and how scientists plan to avoid it. It didn't say why. But it indicated that in 1.1 billion years, the sun is scheduled to swell up to the size of Deon Sanders' head and burn us all up. I say "us" meaning "you," being all those people who have saved this newspaper article for many million centuries.

Man's first walk on the moon 30 years ago was one of those pivotal moments in history when many people still remember exactly what they were doing when it happened.

It all started with the fuffet blunch (pronounced foo-fay blunch). For those of you who don't know, fuffet blunch is not the name of a French restaurant. It is my editor's version of a buffet lunch. He just got a couple of letters out of place. Newsrooms are crazy places on the best of days. When it's around the full moon, they're insane asylums. Actually, you can take the word "asylum" out of that phrase. It was one of those full-moon weeks when Daily Mail editor Tony asked me to check a page he'd just finished laying out. (Laying out has nothing to do with sunbathing.
