Gout! Gout, Damn Spot!

Has your vice president been withholding the nature of his recent medical problems from you? Columnist Bill Hall of the Tacoma News Tribune thinks so, and it's hi-lar-ious! See It Now.

Standing Eight cannot offer an expert medical opinion, but Mr. Hall's forthright analysis, plus the episode of King of the Hill we saw that touches on the subject, lead us to believe Hall is on the ball.

And doesn't it seem like every medium-sized paper has a columnist named Bill Hall? Could the name be the 'Alan Smithee' of editorial page filler? Do we smell a conspiracy? Are we depleting our monthly question mark budget?

We'll have all the answers tonight on action news at eleven. (No, we won't.)
