Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

When he was battling his reputation as a stiff, Al Gore told a joke. He said he would dance his version of the Macarena and then he stood still. Gore may get a chance to reprise the joke now that he's a leading voice against global warming. He has announced a series of worldwide concerts. Artists ranging from Bon Jovi to Snoop Dogg will perform around the world to raise money. We do not know if Gore invited the guys who played the Macarena.
