L.A. City Hall marked the 40th anniversary of the first cellphone Wednesday. The earliest ones didn't cause any car wrecks. Other drivers who saw you just assumed you were singing while drying your sideburns and gave you the leeway you'd give any escapee.

Sandy Koufax got a tremendous ovation when he threw out the first pitch at Dodger Stadium. The new owner assured fans that the team will win the pennant the Los Angeles way. That's terrific, but how do you sleep your way to the top in baseball?

George W. Bush will host the four living presidents to dedicate the George W. Bush Presidential Library in three weeks. There's one room devoted to an exhibit of all the nations where he ended tyranny. You could go snow blind looking at the walls in that room.

South Carolina former governor Mark Sanford won a GOP primary runoff Tuesday for an open House seat. He resigned as governor over his extramarital affair with an Argentine lady. Everybody knew they'd eventually break up over who owns the Falklands.

Lindsay Lohan tweeted while vacationing in Brazil Monday she is pregnant but then 12 hours later she tweeted that it was an April Fools joke. She was not pregnant after all. She just made it all up so she could tell everyone in Rio that she's drinking for two.

California's Oakcrest Institute released a health study saying that laughter on a daily basis is just as healthy as exercise. It's really bad news for the GOP. Nobody knew until now that watching Joe Biden on C-SPAN could extend your life by a minimum of eight years.

The National Archives bowed to sequester cuts by storing away most of its historical documents from the past 75 years. Congress is fine with that. Politicians want to be able to keep calling their opponents Hitler and not be hassled by fact-checkers.

The White House announced that the president will return 5 percent of his salary to the U.S. government to share the sacrifice in the sequester budget cuts. At this rate he'll reimburse us for what he spent on family vacations but only if he's president for another 23 years.
