Al Gore gave only $353 to charity last year. I would like to think that he gave all of it to one street person rather than $1 to 353 different charities.

- I'm wondering about the odd $3. Was it for one acorn to save the forests? Hangnail research? A dozen nails for Habitat for Humanity?- It seems that most people in Ireland don't want Clinton to go over there. But all he wants to do is help the Catholics and Protestants unite in a glorious historic event that will knock Ken Starr off the front page.

- It worked when Clinton went to Africa and later to Chile. So many problems to dodge - so many countries to visit. "If it's David Hale, this must be Ireland."
