    ST. MARTINVILLE, La. - Willie Nelson and his tour manager were spared jail time Tuesday after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession. Nelson and tour manager David Anderson, along with Nelson's sister, Bobbie Nelson, and two drivers, were issued citations on Sept. 18 after state troopers said they found marijuana and hallucinogenic mushrooms on the country legend's tour bus during a commercial-vehicle inspection on Interstate 10. State District Judge Paul deMahy fined Nelson and Anderson $1,024 each and put both on probation for six months. As part of a plea agreement, the citation against Bobbie Nelson was...

    George Clooney and Chris Matthews, separated at birth? The MSNBC 'Hardball' host caught a lot of heat late last year when he delivered a speech to political science students at the University of Toronto that sounded very much like an anti-American screed. In the speech Matthews gave this nugget: “The period between 9-11 and (invading) Iraq was not a good time for America. There wasn’t a robust discussion of what we were doing,” Matthews said. "If we stop trying to figure out the other side, we’ve given up.

    THE MOST DIFFICULT DECISION a governor ever has to make is whether to grant clemency to a condemned convict. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger made such a decision on Monday. He made the right call when he refused to spare the life of Stanley "Tookie" Williams. We do not say that blithely. Frankly, we cannot imagine having to make such a call. But we also cannot conceive of telling the family members of the dead that Williams had somehow redeemed himself by writing some children's books. Williams' case became national news because while in prison he has worked to steer children away...

'I've just finished reading this long article in your paper on the corrosion of the American empire," declares Gwyneth enthusiastically from her perch on a hotel-room couch. Actually, if couches were countries, she's got this one pretty well occupied -- slim legs, clad in black capri pants, tucked captivatingly beneath that elongated body; blond hair tumbling in golden tresses past those cornflower-blue eyes down upon a white silk blouse. Gwyneth, needless to say, looks immaculate....

    I am wondering when the Democrats became the party of the elitists. That used to be the moniker they threw on the Republicans--the Democrats were the party of the blue collar, union, ethnic minorities. Now I find it amazing that they have become the elite simply because of left leaning professors, left wing media who do not have an opinion of their own but what someone else writes for them, the Hollywood group who are all sustained by the hard earned money of the middle class-elitists don't go to movies and concerts, they to theatre and opera-and are supported when...

Those who came to partake found the main courses and side dishes very delicious indeed. Incredibly, the successful event was put together from an idea generated only three months ago. It was just what conservatives had ordered. Hollywood was once patriotic. It responded to WWII with actors who left their careers to serve their country and pro-America movies that advertised...

Bush "was our President" and she insisted that "of course" Al Gore would have been just as "tough" on terrorism. Former CBS News correspondent Meredith Vieira, who participated Sunday in an anti-Bush march, seemed similarly ignorant, scolding Giuliani: "The implication is that if you disagree, I think, with the administration that somehow you are on the side of the terrorists.

    LONDON (Reuters) - The Hollywood screenwriter behind the last controversial film about Christ says Mel Gibson (news)'s new film on the crucifixion is violent and disturbing. "It's a well-made movie but it's very violent and infused with a great sense of self-flagellation,", screenwriter for "The Last Temptation of Christ," told Reuters. Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ," to be released with an adults-only certificate in Britain Friday, has been heavily criticized for its bloody portrayal of Christ's final hours.

Citigroup's decision to more seriously engage one of its main critics, Rainforest Action Network (RAN), came one week after the San Francisco-based group launched a major ad campaign to persuade Citigroup credit card holders to destroy their cards to protest the company's support for projects and industries that environmentalists consider particularly harmful.

However, when the American consumer, offended by their blame-America first rhetoric, reacts with petitions and boycotts, the words ''blacklist,'' ''undermining free speech'' and ''suppressing dissent'' are used by these celebrities.

    The DC Chapter of Free Republic learned through an anonymous source that Tim Robbins (actor, anti-war activist, significant other of Susan Sarandon) would be the guest speaker at a National Press Club luncheon on April 15, 2003.

    It looks like outspoken Iraq war critic Janeane Garofalo won't be honoring her pledge to apologize to President Bush anytime soon. "I have nothing to apologize for," she told WABC Radio's Steve Malzberg, who requested an interview with the comedienne-turned-peacenik for his Sunday morning broadcast. Malzberg tells NewsMax that instead of agreeing to the interview request, Garofalo boasted that her upcoming TV show on ABC is going forward despite a tidal wave of complaints received by the network. "Boycotters are welcome to keep giving me tons of publicity," she dared before reiterating, "There will be no apologies." Just five weeks...
