On the TV news for today, stateside:

A pilot doesn't answer a tower call and overshoots a runway. On with the discussions about pilot fatigue and underpay ( which seems to pop up at least once every five years! )

A new age guru, James Ray, tries to kill his empty headed followers via a sweat lodge. OK, 'tries to kill' might be a little harsh. Apparantly while they were all suffocating and sweating, he was meditating and praying. (His followers prove, like most cult dudes, you can take highly educated people and over-achievers and lead them around by the nose if you just promise them some sort of immortality or 'connectedness' to 'the universe' )

And that's this morning...what's on with your news?

Really? Wow.

Todays ridiculous issue seems to be the right making accusations that Obama has something against women because he played basketball just with some male friends. Aargh!!

It's said that Elvis picked up a gun and shot his television set once.

I'm often very tempted to do the same.

Really? Wow.

The local ban on landfill sites in rural areas has been lifted, and there is complete uproar from residents who were not consulted - basically we could lose some of our green areas which will be used as rubbish dumps

Police are appealing for the owner of a bicycle which has been found in Chester to come forward........

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has been filming advertisements for a 'well known supermarket chain' in Chester City..........

Oh, and we have a new baby rhino at the zoo.......

I definitely talk too much.........please feel free to tell me to shut up - I almost never take offence!

The 8th of the 11 victims found on the west mesa sight in Albuquerque identified. I wonder where this serial killer has moved on to? Could be in jail on unrelated charge, could have moved or could still be doing same thing here just using a different sight for disposal.
People like this don't just stop for no reason.
