We now know where Easter eggs come from - including the thousands scattered yesterday across the South Lawn for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. According to the official White House pool report, "the First Easter Bunny . . . left the appropriate droppings."


We're glad to hear Rep. Rob Simmons, Connecticut Republican, is on the mend after choking on a piece of meat during a recent fund-raiser.

Never one to miss an opportunity to send a get-well card is People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which wrote, "We heard about your harrowing incident at a recent luncheon in which you choked on a 4-inch piece of meat that was later extracted during an hourlong operation. . . .

"While we were impressed by your brave response to the choking incident, we're concerned that if you continue to eat meat, your life . . . will still be in peril. The high levels of cholesterol, saturated fat and contaminants (like arsenic) found in animal products contributes to an array of serious health problems."


Author Tom Kuiper has assembled a large collection of eye-opening quotes attributed to New York's junior Democratic senator, "I've Always Been a Yankees Fan: Hillary Clinton In Her Own Words."

Former Bill Clinton guru Dick Morris writes in the foreword that Kuiper's new book is essential for ensuring "that Hillary's quotes and lies are not forgotten, but come back to haunt her" in her expected 2008 White House run.

Editor's Note: Mr. Kuiper's new book is on sale at the Townhall Book Service for only $12.95.


One congressman isn't kidding when he says, "Every once in awhile, an issue presents itself that we cannot ignore," referring to charges that Chinese authorities are harvesting healthy organs from living humans.

"Witnesses say captive (prisoners of conscience) are shipped in sealed freight trains to secret concentration camp-like facilities that are staffed by surgeons and equipped with crematoriums to dispose of the corpses and other evidence," Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, California Republican, informs President Bush, calling for an investigation.
