Quick Fix 6 — 3/10/06

1. APhoto Fix: A police officer eats an ice lolly as stands in a cordon outside the High Court in Johannesburg, where former Deputy President Jacob Zuma is appearing on rape charges. Zuma’s accuser told the court earlier today that nobody tried to influence her decision to file charges against the man who had been considered destined to become the next president of South Africa.

2. Cartoon Fix: Chuck Asay (Carter pulling against U.S.), Steve Benson (A bone-headed port deal), and J.D. Crowe (Alabama church arsonist).

3. Humor Fix: Did you hear about this? Vice President Dick Cheney has donated $2.7 million to the hospital at George Washington University. This is very smart, he wants to make sure the next guy he shoots is taken care of first-class — Jay Leno.

4. My Way Fix: This Day In History here, Today’s Birthdays here, Positive Quote here, and Word of the Day here.

5. Top of the News Fix: Washington Post to cut 80 newsroom jobs here, NYers won’t back Hillary run for prez here, Tennessee Senate opposes abortion here, 65% of Palestinians support al Qaeda attacks here, and GOP candidates wary of Bush here.

6. Opinion Fix: Mike Rosen/Rocky Mountain News (Jay Bennish & intellectual child abuse), Chuck Colson/BreakPoint Online (Dems hatchet job on religious leaders), John Podhoretz/NY Post (Bush saved by GOP revolt), Tim Kane/Heritage Foundation (Zogbys bogus poll on US troops), and Brent Bozell/Media Research Center (Thumbs up for pimps).
