6735: Cross Your Heart And Hope To Lie.
Food and Drug for Thought in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• The Food and Drug Administration says the healthy claims printed on boxes of Cheerios are not accurate, spanking General Mills for “serious violations.” The FDA also gave the cereal maker 15 days to fix the messages. To pull that off, they’d better eat their Wheaties.
• Donald Trump declared that Miss California Carrie Prejean will keep her crown, despite stirring controversy with nude pictures and her views against gay marriage. Can’t help but think Trump backed Prejean just to piss off Rosie O’Donnell.
• New Detroit Mayor Dave Bing won’t be moving into the official mayoral mansion, hoping to turn it into a profit center for the city. “We have the gem and take care of the gem, so we need to use it to our advantage,” said Bing. “I have no desire to live there. It’s a beautiful structure, and I want to see it become an asset for the city and its residents.” Maybe he can rent it to Kwame Kilpatrick.
