CHINATOWN, New York -- A Jewish man went to eat at a Chinese restaurant and started to wonder if there were any Chinese Jews. So, when the waiter came over to take his order, he asked, "Pardon me, but I'd like to know if there are any Chinese Jews?" The waiter said, "I don't know. I go to kitchen and ask." After taking his order, the waiter went to the kitchen and returned in a few minutes. He explained to the man, "No. No Chinese Jews. We have orange Jews, grape Jews, and pineapple Jews, but no Chinese Jews."

PATERSON, New Jersey, Feb. 13 -- Alexander Hamilton's grand vision for an industrial America began at the town of Paterson, where he recognized the economic potential of two billion gallons of water that tumble over the Great Falls each day. Hamilton's contributions to America came to an end when he was shot dead in a gun duel with Aaron Burr, the third vice president of the United States. Incidentally, vice president Dick Cheney shot a Harry Whittington on a hunting trip this past weekend.
