CNN

Open question: Did American Media Inc (owner of the National Enquirer and Star!) buy CNN from Time Warner?

Seriously.

I look at CNN.com these days and it's all film clips, dead former porn stars, crazy astronauts, bad weather, dogs, and how to get a divorce on Valentine's Day.

The day's biggest news story, IMHO, is the fact that North Korea, supposedly, agreed to dismantle its nuclear program in exchange for $400 million in economic, humanitarian and energy aid. It is barely on the news radar. (Honestly, North Korea, is to be commended for its mastery in the fine art of extortion on this one)

Speaking of North Korea, are we really sure that they exploded a REAL nuclear device a couple of months ago. It barely registered on seismographs.

Perhaps it was all a bluff to give them a better position at the bargaining table. Politicians are great at giving away other people's money.

Hmmmmm,

Now if the Vatican starts a mysterius,nebulous nuc programme, coult we get $$$ to dismantle it?
