      "The obligation of the comedian is to find where the line is
       drawn, deliberately cross it, and make the audience glad you
       took them with you."
                                  George Carlin


In the News: There's just one problem with the notion that the Unabomber
finally may be behind bars, says Bill Williams.  "This will be the first
Christmas in 17 years I won't have an excuse to throw my aunt's fruitcake
into the bay."

Adds Kenny Noble, "The reason that 35,000-word manifesto is so rambling and
disconnected is simple.  Obviously, he put off writing it until the Sunday
night before it was due."  

Adds Andrew Havens, "Personally, I can't get past the idea of 35,000 words
on a manual typewriter.  The FBI should be looking for the 17 yards of
correct-o-tape that must be buried outside the cabin."


Cadets at the Naval Academy face charges involving cheating, drug use,
stolen cars and sexual assault.  Says Argus Hamilton, "It makes sense. You
can't get into the Naval Academy unless a member of Congress vouches for
your behavior."


Another study suggests that men's brains shrink three times as fast as a
women's brains.  Says Paul Steinberg, "Fortunately, help is on the way.
There is now a Brain Club for Men."  


In yet another study, menopausal women were given the hormone testosterone.
Says Dennis Miller, "They not only experienced an increase in energy, but
they started getting paid more."
