My Back Pages

Snow Leopard Pelts Seized - Hu Jintao, China's President, General Secretary of the Communist Party and Chairman of the Central Military Commission (familiar to As Good As News readers as Party Animal) has a real love for rare cats and a genuine conservationist streak. Police seized 104 snow leopard pelts from a trader in Gansu, China. Active enforcement will protect the endangered snow leopard, and those seized pelts will certainly look terrific in Party Animal's den.

Farrow Offers to Take Sudan Prisoner's Place- Mia Farrow offered to exchange places with Suleiman Jamous, a coordinator for the Darfur rebel group Sudan Liberation Army now being held a virtual prisoner at a UN hospital in Kordofan, East of Darfur. Jamous needs a stomach biopsy which cannot be performed there, but he will be arrested if he leaves. As Good As News understands that Woody Allen has offered to cover all transportation costs if Sudan will accept Ms Farrow's offer. Angelina Jolie and Madonna have both announced their support for Ms Farrow's publicity stunt, oops, I meant courageous gesture, and are rumored to be racing to get out the first press release offering to exchange places with a jailed African leader, as soon as they can identify one.
