Spokane Backpack Contained Bomb

The abandoned backpack found Monday along the route of Spokane’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. march contained a bomb capable of inflicting “multiple casualties,” the FBI has confirmed. The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s terrorism task force is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for planting the bomb. The FBI on Tuesday issued a bulletin asking for the public’s assistance. Frank Harrill, special agent in the charge of the Spokane FBI office, would not discuss what specifically made the bomb so dangerous but said the investigation has become a top priority/Thomas Clouse, SR.

Bill Cosby To Perform In Spokane

Bill Cosby’s job titles, over the last 50 years, have included comedian, actor, writer, producer and director. Yet during a phone interview last week, we asked Cosby if he considered himself something a little meatier: an educator. “Yes,” he said. “Period. Day one. From the classroom at Temple University to the coffeehouses in Greenwich Village in 1963, all the way through. Everything I have ever done through the TV set has to do with education.” After all, Cosby is in fact Dr. William Cosby, having earned a doctorate in education in 1976 from the University of Massachusetts. Yet he also is one of the world’s best known comedians, able to command audiences of millions because he never forgot rule No. 1: Be funny/Jim Kershner, SR. More here.

Question: Can you think of a comedian who is funnier than Bill Cosby?
