In some completely WTF? news, President Bush yesterday commuted the 14-year prison sentence of former Fugee associate John Forté. Forté has been in jail since 2000, when he was arrested at a New Jersey airport in possession of $1.4 million worth of liquid cocaine.

Singer-songwriter Carly Simon, whose son, Ben Taylor (son of James), went to the exclusive Phillips Exeter Academy with Forté, has for years lobbied hard for the rapper/producer's release.
