Donkey Becomes Witness in Dallas Dispute

The first witness in a lawsuit Wednesday between two neighbors was a real ass. Buddy the donkey walked to the bench and stared at the jury, the picture of a gentle, well-mannered creature and not the loud, aggressive animal he had been accused of being.

The donkey was at the center of a dispute between oilman John Cantrell and attorney Gregory Shamoun that began after Cantrell complained about a storage shed Shamoun was building in his backyard in Dallas.

He said Shamoun retaliated by bringing Buddy from his ranch in Midlothian and putting him in the backyard.

In this campaign poster, released by a family member of Lanao Del Sur Board Member candidate Agakhan Mangondato Sharief in Manila, Philippines, shows a big, bold "Bin Laden" print of the 35-year-old candidate in the 1st District of Lanao Del Sur province in southern Philippines Wednesday, April 18, 2007.

MANILA, Philippines (AP) - Philippine elections are largely a battle of name recall, so Agakhan Sharief has chosen a moniker that will surely capture the attention of voters well beyond his backwater southern province - Osama bin Laden.

Comment: Holy cow wonder when a Bush look-alike will come around. I'm still waiting for "the other Bush; he's a uniter not a divider."
