Okay, I Admit, I Didn't Like Madeline Either

The New York Daily News' gossip column, Page Six, informsus that one John Green has struck again.

Green, executive producer of the weekend editions of "Good Morning America," made headlines last week when the Drudge Report posted a confidential e-mail he wrote to an ABC colleague in which he declared, "[George W.] Bush makes me sick."

Now, another network e-mail Green wrote in has been obtained in which he argues that Bill Clinton's former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, should not be booked on "GMA" because, "Albright has Jew shame."

Green, who is Jewish, was referring to Albright's reluctance to acknowledge her Jewish heritage when it was uncovered by a Washington Post reporter not long after she was sworn in as the first female Secretary of State in 1997.

Green also says of Albright in the e-mail, "She hates us anyway because she says we promised her five minutes and only gave her two . . . I do not like her."

An ABC News source claims that Green has since "banned" Albright from the show. "This blanket ban was issued because of a personal bias," the source said. "He didn't like her and didn't want to deal with her."

I want to know what George Bush is doing about the Epstein-Barr Virus

Well, I looked it up:

Epstein-Barr virus, frequently referred to as EBV, is a member of the herpesvirus family and one of the most common human viruses. The virus occurs worldwide, and most people become infected with EBV sometime during their lives. In the United States, as many as 95% of adults between 35 and 40 years of age have been infected. Infants become susceptible to EBV as soon as maternal antibody protection (present at birth) disappears. Many children become infected with EBV, and these infections usually cause no symptoms or are indistinguishable from the other mild, brief illnesses of childhood. In the United States and in other developed countries, many persons are not infected with EBV in their childhood years. When infection with EBV occurs during adolescence or young adulthood, it causes infectious mononucleosis 35% to 50% of the time.

What is Bush supposed to be doing about it?
