President Bush says he hasn't seen Brokeback Mountain-- and in more stunning news, neither have Fred Phelps or Jerry Falwell, (although Ralph Reed is said to be a fan)

Student wearing Broncos jersey in Pennsylvania feels teacher humiliated him-- while I have been known to smile beneficently and bestow candy upon students wearing OU Sooner or TU Golden Hurricane regalia, this is too much! (And the class was an ethnicity class, designed to promote TOLERANCE!)

Not to mention that the kid in the Broncos jersey claimed that Elway was his favorite player, but he certainly couldnta seen Elway play since he was 15
