It seems to me that President Bush's journey was misdirected. His tough talk should have been reserved for the American people. I can still spot the vestiges of Persian Gulf support stickers on the bumpers of imported automobiles. Why is it not clear to every U.S. citizen that the unemployed American auto worker can't afford to make the purchases that help keep our economy strong? Buying U.S.

The post-Oscar question of the week: What did happen during the snafu with best actor presenter Bette Davis during the awards?

The most impressive effect on Monday night's Academy Awards telecast (Cher's dress not withstanding) was Mickey Mouse's surprise appearance to help present the Oscar for best animated short. At the end of a clip from the "Sorcerer's Apprentice" sequence of "Fantasia," Mickey leaped out of the screen and conjured up a giant package that burst to reveal Tom Selleck. The cartoon mouse exchanged banter with the live actor, walked across the stage and announced one of the nominees.

Is there a devious catch here?
