Misdirected Funds: "Sen. Joe Lieberman gave a speech where he told a crowd in Florida that he believes he and Al Gore will run for president again in 2004. . . . After hearing the news, the crowd went wild and accidentally donated money to Pat Buchanan." (Conan O'Brien)

Baby Booming: "A new study lists the percentages of babies born to unmarried women. . . . The average of the nation's 50 largest cities increased a bit--to around 43%. . . . The lowest figure in the country is Utah, with just 17%. The highest? The District of Columbia, with a whopping 63%. . . . The number for D.C.--not counting Jesse Jackson's kids: 28%." (Daily Scoop)
