GORE UNVEILS PLAN FOR ALL GAY MILITARY

Vice President Al Gore recently drew criticism from conservative opponents with a controversial plan to introduce compulsory homosexuality in the military. At a press conference Gore

explained
  "Most of our current military commitment involves rebuilding countries that our planes have pounded to rubble. Frankly, our efforts to date have not always been in the

best of taste. My plan will ensure we have the personnel in place to make Kosovo a showplace of Balkan millennial chic."

THE UNTOLD STORY OF GAYS IN THE MILITARY

A Special Report

Vice President Gore's recent proposals regarding gays in the military have provoked an outcry in many quarters. To students of history however the proposals are far from controversial - they recall a distinguished but little-discussed page in the annals of the US Army.
In 1917, British and French troops were hard pressed by the Kaiser's legions,

when American doughboys heard the call from "Over There." Among the thousands of troops who answered the call were the 501st California Infantry,

better known as The Gay Berets. These little-known photographs bear witness to the achievements of these gallant boys in our nations hour of need.

ADVERTISERS LINE UP TO POUR BILLIONS INTO HAPPY DAYS RERUN

An upcoming episode of Happy Days on the Family Network is attracting big name advertisers who are paying up to $10 million for a 30 second commercial time slot. The reason for this sudden frenzy: network executive Harry Sharke explains:
"Everyone knows most people don't tune into the Super Bowl for the game. They want to see the

commercials. If the commercials are good enough, people will watch anything. So we decided this episode of 'Happy Days' would have great commercials, put the word out to advertisers and it just sort of snowballed. Our next step will be program-free programming. All commercials, all the time. We're very excited."
