Quick Fix 6 — 3/3/06

1. APhoto Fix: In this photo released at his retirement home in Tosny, western Fance, Friday March 3, 2006, Rene Riffaud is seen in either 1917 or 1918. France has rediscovered two centenarian veterans of the 1914-1918 conflict that killed millions, increasing the number of known survivors from five to seven and raising the possibility that there may be others that French officials do not know about.

2. Cartoon Fix: Henry Payne (Your family practitioner), Mike Luckovich (Barney Fife lives), and Drew Litton (Olympics TV ratings).

3. Humor Fix: David Letterman's "Top Ten Signs You're Not Going To Win An Academy Award" here.

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: Poll: Bush strength on terrorism falls along with job approval here, Harris Poll: Americans support "Crash," "Walk The Line" stars for Oscars here, Study links mercury to autism here, Columnist Art Buchwald near death here, and Animal-rights activists convicted for harassment here.

6. Opinion Fix: James Klurfeld/Newsweek (Bush presidency falling apart), Diana West/Washington Times (Ports & pitchforks), Daniel Henninger/Wall Street Journal (Has Washington gone insane?), Kathleen Parker/Orlando Sentinel (Free to hate ... and dine alone), and Chuck Colson/BreakPoint (Which movies really are mainstream).
