SHOULDER ARMS -- California Democratic Congressmen Brad Sherman and Howard Berman almost came to blows during a debate in which Sherman suddenly grabbed Berman around the shoulders.   It's the first known instance of two politicians getting that close without picking each others' pockets.

WakiLeaks: History Declassified 2000 (Vol. One) is now available on Kindle for $2.99
