Silly Science: Psychologists studying video of Bill Clinton say that when he lies, he touches his nose. "And when he tells the truth . . . well, they still don't know." (Rudolph J. Cecera)

The Essential David Letterman

Good things about being Bill Gates' baby:

10. Dad hires another baby to teethe for you.

9. If Daddy doesn't give you the toy you want, you can rat him out to Janet Reno.

8. You look at baby on Pampers package and think, "I can buy and sell you."

7. You can spit up on Al Gore when he claims he invented you.

6. You're 2 days old and already you can beat dad at arm wrestling.

3. The "goofy hair" gene skips a generation.
