Mayor Diaz faints, loses speaking slot

DENVER -- Miami Mayor Manny Diaz fainted last night from altitude sickness before he was supposed to address the Democratic National Convention, according to a Democratic party source.

They call Denver the Mile-High city, and shortness of breath is not an uncommon complaint among flat-landers from Florida.

The mayor's staff would not offer any explanation last night for why he didn't go on stage -- even after his prepared remarks had been released -- other than to say there was a scheduling glitch. He's back on the schedule for Wednesday night.

TRUTH: Mayor Diaz fainted after he learned that be would be sworn in prior to his speech to tell the whole truth and not just that which is politically expedient.
