"The expansive agenda President Bush laid out at the Republican National Convention was missing a price tag, but administration figures show the total is likely to be well in excess of $3 trillon over a decade.

"A staple of Bush's stump speech is his claim that his Democratic challenger, John F. Kerry, has proposed $2 trillion in longterm spending, a figure the Massachusetts senator's campaign calls exaggerated. But the cost of the new tax breaks and spending outlined by Bush at the GOP convention far eclipses that of the Kerry plan. ..."


Meanwhile, the ashes of the late Marlon Brando were scattered yesterday in Tahiti and Death Valley. At the Death Valley ceremony for a man many (including myself) consider one of the greatest actors of the 20th century, they also scattered the ashes of Brando's good friend and former roommate, Wally Cox, who died in 1973.

According to the media, "[H]ow Cox's ashes were in the possession of Brando's family was unknown." Personally, I find it fitting that the actors who gave us Jor-El and Underdog were put to rest together.
