HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody?

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi disclosed Sunday that more tax hikes are being considered to increase federal tax revenue. Many Democrats want a surtax on Wall Street bonuses. This is the kind of punitive tax that could drive our best people out of fraud.

Southern California's gun show in Ontario last weekend drew huge crowds. The city is east of L.A. in a region known as the Inland Empire. It's the only empire whose queen's got a tattoo on her neck and a government food card.

"Downton Abbey's" third season premiered Sunday. It's about British aristocrats and their servants. This year it's airing in Mexico. It's a warning to Mexicans who are thinking about coming north that if they ask for too much money, the jobs are all going to go to English-speaking people.

Apple's iPhone store in Paris was robbed by thieves who stole one million dollars in iPhones and iPads Thursday. The company has a fail-proof business model. Last year Apple founder Steve jobs died and every six months he's re-buried in a slightly better coffin.

Vladimir Putin welcomed Gerard Depardieu to Russia after the French movie star became a Russian to avoid high taxes. The actor is the master of farce. And if there is anything we know about the Russians, it's that they really appreciate a light comic touch.
