Webster Infatuated Officer Reprimanded 

While master criminal Emmanuel "Webster" Lewis roams free, the AP tells us that the officer who punished him for speeding 25 miles over the speed limit by asking for a photo with his boyhood hero is getting a reprimand:
"Although police officers can use discretion in issuing tickets, the Warwick City Council concluded Tuesday that Kirk's actions were improper. The council ordered that Kirk receive a written reprimand and that the police chief review his department's policies on giving verbal warnings.

'The council wants the public to know they acknowledge and agree that mistakes were made,' said Tommy Coleman, the town's lawyer. 'Anyone who has been in government and anyone who is a driver knows that 70 miles per hour in a 45 mile per hour zone is too fast, especially when one vehicle is towing another.'"


They concluded that the incident was simply a mistake. Ooops, you are famous, you may go free.

Bush's Girlfriend Screws Up in Russia 

The AP tells us a story that's just too good to ignore:
"Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice tried out her rusty Russian in a Moscow radio interview Wednesday, only to get caught out by a question on whether she might run for president.

'Da (Yes),' Rice answered in Russian, before realizing her misunderstanding and hastily adding 'Nyet' (No) -- seven times.

Rice's interview on Ekho Moskvy radio turned into a linguistic ordeal when the Soviet expert and former provost of Stanford university fielded a schoolgirl listener's question on how she achieved her career success.

'It's too complicated to answer!' Rice, in Russia to meet President Vladimir Putin, started out in English. 'It is an opportunity for me to come back to Russia, a place I love very much. I love the culture and the language.'

She then switched into Russian, but quickly hit trouble.

Apparently meaning to say that she would like to do her next interview in the language of her host, she chose a verb that sounded more like 'to earn money' than the Russian for 'to do.'

'You understand it will be very difficult because I am out of practice, and in your language there are these awful cases!' she continued. 'It's very difficult for us, and it is very difficult to talk without making mistakes.' "


She wants to run for president and she wants to earn money doing interviews in Russia. And, she tells a schoolgirl that her language is whack. What a babe!
