EYE ON DESIGN
  Recently Renovated White House Situation Room Unveiled
Endless War on Terror required more comfortable chairs.
 
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
 
Deborah Jeane Palfrey
The so-called "D.C. Madam," Palfrey rocked Washington when she announced her intention to reveal the identities of her former clients, many of whom were government officials, some in high places. Well, today, Ms. Palfrey is working at her new high-paying job in the State Department and says she's "never been happier."

Can you match the problem in the left hand column with the Bush Administrationís solution in the right hand column?
Problem   Solution
Iraq   Run out the clock
Justice Dept. scandals   Run out the clock
Global warming   Run out the clock
This year, with a writers strike looming, the networks wisely ordered shows that don't need writers. Fortunately, there's no strike planned by viewers of such fare.
“Celebrity Extreme Home Makeover”. (CBS): For those who want to see stars' tasteless million-dollar mansions upgraded to tasteless multi-million-dollar mansions, this show is for you.
“Neanderthal Wife Swap” (ABC): It's not clear from the promotional material if the wives are Neanderthals, the husbands, or everybody. This is the first show written by signing gorillas, or at least the first one to get picked up.
“Friends” (NBC): What the network neglects to say in its handout is that this is an animated version, with all the voices impersonated by Fred Travalena.
“Debatemania” (MSNBC): Take eight Democratic candidates, ten Republican hopefuls, a 20' x 20' ring, “last man standing” rules and you've got what moderator Vince McMahon calls “must-see-it-to-believe-it” TV. If it works, the primaries become irrelevant.
(Mr. TV threw out his TV and has taken up transcendental meditation.)
