    All he needs to do is produce a couple of e-mails or taped telephone conversations and we'll clear up this matter in a few minutes. Absent that, let's go on to the next matter at hand.

    Also, A-Rod was the second shooter on the grassy knoll, stole the Lindberg baby, and was spotted attempting to purchase yellow cake uranium in Nigeria.
