George W. Bush is doing pretty well for a retiree. Our former president will hit the lecture circuit next month for a reported $150,000 per speech, which seems like a lot to pay to hear someone who can’t speak give a speech.

CRIME & PUNISHMENT

A New York man was ticketed for going 137 mph in a 1993 Honda Civic in Upstate New York. He was asked how a 16 year old Honda could go so fast. Apparently the man just bought the car from Alex Rodriguez who swears he didn’t put anything extra in the tank. (Jim Barach)

The man claimed he’d been waterboarded, exposed to extreme temperatures, that he underwent sleep deprivation and that he was forced to attend several renaissance fairs. (Patrick Gorse)

MEXICO & LATIN AMERICA

The State Department warned college students not to travel to Mexico for spring break. They are concerned kids might be able to find a job there and never come back. (Pedro Bartes)

Mexico’s political stability came under question on Tuesday due to anarchy and drug wars. It’s not likely to attract an al-Qaeda presence. If their idea of heaven is seventy-two virgins, they are not going to like Cabo San Lucas during spring break. (Argus Hamilton)

(Jerry Perisho)

Roane State College will have to forfeit a basketball game, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported, because 73-year-old guard Ken Mink flunked a language course, making him academically ineligible.

As if Alex Rodriguez needed any more bad publicity, he hitched a ride from the Yankees’ spring-training opener in the SUV of Yuri Sucart — the cousin he said used to inject him with steroids.

The Washington Nationals were understandably angry to learn that Esmailyn Gonzalez, the 16-year-old Dominican phenom they signed, turned out to be a 20-year-old named Carlos Alvarez Daniel Lugo, now 23.

A cartoonist for the New York Post is being criticized for portraying a chimpanzee as the author of the federal stimulus plan, and well he should be. To insult a chimp in that manner is deplorable. The plan is so bad that it could not have been created by a creature that high on the evolutionary scale. (Scott Witt)

U. S Airways flights will start charging $7 for pillows and blankets on domestic flights. They know that we all need pillows, because we need something to bite while we’re getting screwed by the airline. (Pedro Bartes)

HOLIDAYS

Crash Wednesday: The day after Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras is celebrated as the last day before Ash Wednesday, or the start of Lent for the Christian religion. For people between the ages of 16 and 25, its where you get tanked in the middle of the week. Crash Wednesday is the day dedicated to your hangover. (Urban Dictionary)
