***The following is _actually true_***

Yesterday, President Clinton held a tear-filled news conference to
'share the pain' of those close to the 'Heaven's Gate' suicides.  He
said that 'we have to understand the motivation behind this'.

Immediately, one of the reporters asked "Perhaps it was due to your
re-election, sir?"
