     "In 1993, the year we went on the air, Julia Roberts married
      Lyle Lovett, Prince changed his name to a weird symbol, and
      Michael Jordan quit the Bulls to play baseball. So, as you
      can see, we were hardly the year's biggest mistake."
					- Conan O'Brien

(Gary Easley)

Cart-Before-the-Horse Department: South African President Nelson Mandela,
who was the guest of honor at a White House reception last week, spent 25
years in prison before he served in public office.  "Most politicians do it
the other way around." (Argus Hamilton)

The portrait is bigger and more expressive. "It shows Andrew Jackson denying
that he ever had sexual relations with that woman, Dolly Madison."
