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

NSA whistleblower Ed Snowden revealed the NSA monitors your calls and reads your messages, tracks your whereabouts and learns everything about you. That's just wrong. Nowhere in the Constitution is the federal government given the same power as Facebook.

New England Patriots player Alfonzo Dennard was arrested for drunk driving Friday. That's more like it. The Patriots vowed to work on team character after Aaron Hernandez was charged with a shooting murder, and drunk driving is definitely a step in the right direction.

USA Today published a Census Bureau report saying the U.S. birth rate hit an all-time low last year. Those two-way ultrasounds were a real mistake. The U.S. pregnancy rate was the same as it always was, but the kids saw the national debt and they won't come out.

New York hosts the Major League Baseball All-Star game tonight at Citi Field. They'll spotlight local candidates. Eliot Spitzer will be on hand to throw out the first wedding vow and Anthony Weiner will be ejected from the stadium when he texts a photo of his hot dog.

Eliot Spitzer turned in enough signatures to place him on the ballot for NY Comptroller Friday. His slogan was forced on him. When you've been caught paying $4,000 to a call girl, what can you say except nothing's too good for the people of New York.

Coloradans expressed fury when lawmakers proposed a 35 percent sales tax on pot sales. It's amazing. Democrats worked so hard to turn Colorado into a blue state, and in less time than it takes you to roll a joint it's going to be more Republican than Texas.
