You know you've made it to the big time...

...when you get your star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at the same time the President of the United States is recommending that the cradle of your terrifying strength be turned into a national park.

That's right. Godzilla gets a star on November 29, 2004, and good ol' George just signed a bill "requiring the federal government to study the potential for adding historic Manhattan Project sites, including a reactor at the Hanford nuclear site, to the national park system."

It's a good day to be a fire-breathing radiation-mutated thunder lizard.

Oh, and thanks, George. We know, "Don't say I never did anything for you." But turning the nation's most contaminated nuclear site into a national park? Couldn't you have just left a bag of pretzels behind on your way out of the Oval Office? That would have been fine.

Million-dollar idea, free for the taking

You've seen the yellow and stars-and-stripes car magnets. You've seen those magnets applied sideways. Now imagine one of those sideways ribbons in silver, and squint a little. What do you have? That's right. A silver fish.

Combination yellow-ribbon, stars-and-stripes-ribbon, fish magnet. Should sell like, well, like plain old yellow and stars-and-stripes ribbon magnets. Pesky separation-of-church-and-state, "This isn't a crusade" issues? What are you talking about, boy? There's a war on.
