    Reporting from Tokyo — At the seemingly fragile age of 76, his story is the stuff of Hollywood legend (Well, maybe the seamier side of the San Fernando Valley), a tale made more outlandish because it happened to a buttoned-down salary man in hyper-conservative Japan. For years, a Tokyo grandfather kept a dirty little secret from his family. Longtime travel agent Shigeo Tokuda, who resembles countless older men who ride the Tokyo subway each day, admitted to his wife and daughter that he sometimes performed cameos in small-budget films. But what this senior citizen didn't say was that those scenes,...
  • President Says Americans May Be Making Too Much Money

    President Barack Obama sought to deflect concerns over lingering high unemployment by suggesting that “people’s obsession with prosperity has gone too far in this country. I mean, there’s a point where a person has to realize that he’s got too much money.” “Getting Americans to overcome this obsession is a difficult undertaking,” the President observed. “They’re going to need our help. Maybe it’ll take something like a value-added tax to sop up some of the excess funds that people are encumbered with. Plus, by transferring a greater share of the nation’s wealth from selfish individuals to the government we can...

    ``Star Wars'' star Natalie Portman is convinced her shaved head makes her look like a terrorist. The itty-bitty actress, 24, who lopped off her lush locks for the upcoming ``V for Vendetta,'' told Newsweek she suspects her chrome dome was the reason New York's finest pulled her over by the Midtown Tunnel the other day. ``I've never had that happen to me before,'' the Harvard grad confessed to the weekly news magazine. ``It's supposedly random . . . My registration was expired because I had been out of town, and it was my first day back. I'd been in Israel...

    Putting up with the inane comments from the Hollywood left may seem overwhelming at times. After all, we are told by the likes of Martin Sheen, Janeane Garofalo, and Mike Farrell that Saddam Hussein is not a threat to us or his neighbors. We are told that inspections can work. From their gas-guzzling limos, we are told that this is a war for oil. Now, Nashville has stepped in, through the mouth of Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks, to lend its "influence" to the "debate," and many Americans are left wondering, "What's next?" Overwhelming? Yes. Hopeless? No. For the...
