Cokes, Koreans, and Birthday Cakes

So far, so good, for the space shuttle Discovery. Astronauts have found no evidence of damage to the craft following Tuesday’s launch, during which a few pieces of icy foam were observed falling from the shuttle’s external fuel tank.

Healthy competition is good for business, especially when the competitors are honorable. Pepsi told Coke someone was trying to peddle recipe secrets between the two soft drink companies, and a sting was hatched to fizzle the plot.

Sure enough, an executive administrative assistant in Coke’s Atlanta headquarters was caught in the act, rifling files for documents and sneaking a sample of a new beverage Coke is working on.

Price tag asked for the information: $1.5-million.
Giving up the mole to Coca Cola by Pepsi: priceless.

In New York City, the illegal immigrant demo is so important to the economy, that the Big Apple would become an empty core if that group were to be deported, according to the testimony of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Mayor Bloomberg told a Senate committee hearing yesterday that New York is home to more than 3 million immigrants, one-sixth of which are in the country illegally.

Here's the quote: "Although they broke the law by illegally crossing our borders ... our city's economy would be a shell of itself had they not, and it would collapse if they were deported. The same holds true for the nation."

North Korea has more missiles on launch pads…three are ready for test shots. Is it just me, or does the N. Korean Flag look like a marquee for an Israeli Texaco station?

Speaking of lots of pyrotechnics, President George W. Bush is 60-today. D.C. Fire Marshalls are standing by for the lighting of the presidential birthday cake at the White House.
