++ Well, folks, it's started – the presidential race. Democratic Senator John Edwards of North Carolina, who is also a personal injury attorney, has announced he's running for president in 2004. Good slogan, too: "Elect me and there will be one less lawyer." -- Jay Leno
++ For a limited time, Burger King announced today, they're selling their Whopper for 99 cents. Here's the amazing part – the kid working the register is still giving back the wrong change. "You gave me a dollar, right?" -- Jay Leno
++ Jail is a real tough place. They only get basic cable and the pool heater doesn't always work. -- David Letterman
++ Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment. -- Will Rogers
++ I don't have hobbies. I have interests. Hobbies cost money. Interests are free. -- George Carlin
++ If you have ten thousand regulations you destroy all respect for the law. -- Winston Churchill
