HOLLYWOOD — God bless America, and how’s everybody?
Kate Middleton’s pregnancy became public when she left the hospital Thursday. The doctor told her to rest a lot and not lift anything heavy. So if Prince Harry sleeps over at Kensington Palace, Prince William will have to be the one who picks him up off the floor.
Detroit’s city council demanded that President Obama grant them a bailout in return for all their votes for him last month. At least they’re honest. People in Detroit don’t care if the cashier says Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays to them, either way this is a robbery.
Hanukkah began Saturday night, marking a miracle of regenerating oil lamps during Israel’s victory over Syria in ancient times. It’s been updated. Rabbis now teach kids that during battle, a laptop only had enough battery juice for one day but it miraculously lasted for eight days.

British intelligence and CIA agents were reportedly slipping into Syria Monday. They must change their routine. The dictator just ordered the doorman at the Damascus casino to kill the first white guy who wins big at baccarat and then walks out with the check.
Steven Spielberg’s film Lincoln drew raves from historians Sunday although the film never brings up Abe’s proposed deportation of slaves. Yankees maintain they invaded the South for the purest of motives. At the time they thought all the oil was in Pennsylvania.
Speaker John Boehner accused President Obama of wasting another week in the fiscal cliff talks Friday. The president refuses to consider spending cuts while Republicans refuse to raise taxes. Ten percent of Americans polled are rooting for a settlement as the politicians approach the cliff, while ninety percent are rooting for gravity and a low tide.
Hyde Park on Hudson stars Bill Murray as Franklin D. Roosevelt when he seduced his cousin to be his third mistress just before the war. He also slept with two secretaries. To get away with all this, he had to tell his wife he was out late every night defeating Hitler.
