This is an Internet News Service news bulletin: Top Story: Hackers Break into Justice Department Web Page Sometime early Saturday morning, a group of mischievous programmers revamped the U.S. Department of Justice Web Page as a protest to the Communications Decency Act and other censorship. The new "United States Department of Injustice" included a picture of Attorney General Hitler and a topless photo of Jennifer Anniston that made the Most Wanted list quite wanted indeed. While the Department of Justice rectified the problem only a few hours after the crime was committed, a major debate has been kindled. You see, in that brief few hour span, there was unprecedented global interest in law and order. On the international front, riots have begun in five major cities in Jordan this week. While the riotous mobs insist their dissatisfaction is with the rising price of bread, King Hussein has dismissed such folly and accused parties loyal to Iraq of spreading dissatisfaction in order to subvert the Jordan government. Iraq admits they "attempted" the subversion, but slavering mobs kept eating their field operatives. Stateside, the Reform party, a distant third in the upcoming election, has selected Ross Perot as its presidential nominee. While his vice-presidential choice has yet to be made, it is agreed among the party members that it will not be Ed Rollins, Perot's campaign manager from 1992. Rollins has openly criticized Perot in his book "Bare Knuckles and Back Rooms." Also, after the copyright lawsuit from the adult movie of the same name, Mr. Rollins has been unable to contribute to the party this election. News Flash: Generallissimo Francisco Franco is once again dead. Carrying a bag lunch on his vacation to Jordan turned out to be his downfall. Sometimes it pays NOT to be prepared. On Friday, a three-year-old boy in Brookfield, Illinois fell eighteen feet into a zoo enclosure containing seven gorillas. He was immediately rescued, not by zookeepers, but by one of the animals. The 150 lb. female gorilla picked up the unconscious form of the boy and laid it at a door to be easily retrieved to by zookeepers. This cross-species rescue has resulted in thousands of dollars in donations to the zoo. It is perhaps because of these donations that zookeepers have kept quiet about one vital detail, a hastily scrawled note tucked in the boy's collar, "Thanks; but we prefer fruit." A new public health campaign begins in Singapore this week. The two month multi-media advertising campaign is meant to train the public to keep their public lavatories clean. Why this sudden costly interest in clean johns? Why no more helpful insights about who to call for a good time scrawled on easily accessible walls? Well, last month Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong suggested that the world measure social progress not by technological prowess or military might but by the cleanliness of public facilities and appreciation of music. What does that make Seattle?
