Think at your own risk.

Tomorrow's headlines today
Barack Obama gets Secret Service protection, I'd guess because of death threats of the racist variety.

Astronaut Wally Schirra has died.

TIME Magazine names its most influential, and leaves Dubya off the list.

On the entertainment front, Isaiah Washington finds that nothing says your sorry like a nice PSA.

Meanwhile, there's no PSA that's going to save George W. Bush from the wrath of gay rights groups over his threatened veto of a just passed hate crimes bill. I've said this before, but I think Bush's supposed opposition to basic gay rights protections is phonied up Christian right pandering. This guy's a Methodist. I used to be a Methodist. Methodists are the most "live and let live" religion I've ever seen. They don't even sing strenuously. I seriously doubt they could work up the passion to dislike gays or anyone else.

Venezuela's Hugo Chavez continues playing "alarm the Gringos" -- this time threatening to nationalize his country's banks.

Will France have its first woman president? Polls suggest not.

In news of the weird, rumor has it James Brown's so-called widow has a new sugar daddy: Don Magic Juan, pimp extraordinaire.

Even in death, Anna Nicole continues to influence the course of human events ... at least in the Bahamas...

And hey, Florida, what's that sea creature?
