What's Going On – News Round Up

  • Surprisingly, FEMA is getting good grades from midwest flood victims then again midwesterners are really nice people. Good for FEMA, finally.
  • What? McCain doesn’t know how to use a computer? Heck, my 4 yo grandson tells me to go to Disney.com and then I need to let go of the mouse. My 72 yo father who died several years ago, could send those racy internet jokes and could type of letter in Word. McCain is running for President and can’t use a computer. Now, who is elitist? I’m guessin’ that Senator McCain has someone do his computer work for him.
  • Nice article on how doctors know a ton of stuff but we still have a lot to learn with Cardiology in specific and Medicine in general.
  • Jerry Seinfeld wrote an Op-Ed about George Carlin. “We were talking about Tim Russert and Bo Diddley and George said: ‘I feel safe for a while. There will probably be a break before they come after the next one. I always like to fly on an airline right after they’ve had a crash. It improves your odds.’
  • Violence in Iraq.
  • Al Qaeda has a significant web presence. They produced 97 web videos last year alone.
  • In Zibabwe, not only did the opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai pulled out of the runoff elections. Because of ongoing threats to his live he took sanctuary in the Dutch Embassy. The international community needs to do more than just provide sanctuary. The UN has asked “President” Mugabe to stop the runoff elections and to stop the violence.
  • Why does Imus have a radio show? Come on someone tell me. He was on the radio yesterday and talking with someone in the studio about Adam “Pacman” Jones who has been recently picked up by the Dallas Cowboys. Warner Wolf stated that Pacman had been arrested six times. Imus interjected what race is he. African-America. Imus replied, “There you go.” Racist? You can hear the clip here. Decide for yourself.
  • Oh, I can’t forget. You hate Vista. Want to go back to XP? Nope, you can’t do it. Well, at least, in a few days you can’t. Microsoft is beginning to phase out all XP stuff on June 30th.
