The NewsCorp phone-hacking scandal seems to have Our Ms. Brooks as its poster girl. You always see that red Kenny G mane of hair whenever Murdock's minions are on the hot seat.
Everyone outside of the Murdock empire seems to have a special level of glee at their troubles. So far, it doesn't seem to have made it over to the Fox side of things, as it is mostly the British papers in the chain, including the now-defunct News of the World, that were up to their eyeballs in naughty actions.
Here's another one of those Britishisms; "takeaway" is British for take-out food. Thus, you had a Bengali-Brit busted renting out Spice Girls along with spicy Indian food at his takeaway.
Snakes on a plain .... bag of mulch, man. Go easy on the ganga next time.
That's one rich boy in the hoodie. I'm not sure what percentage Zuckerberg has in Facebook, but the whole thing is looking at a $100B market cap. When you're delivering the goods at that level, you can wear your PJs to a meet-and-greet on Wall Street. If you're a small-capper, you might need to dress up, but Zuckerberg is a 800 pound gorilla who dresses like he wants; you're going to tell him to put the tie back on?
Interesting moves in BC, where the Liberals are the main party of the right in provincial politics. However, the Conservatives are gaining ground on the provincial Grits to a point where merger talks are being discussed. With Wildrose doing well, but not well enough, in Alberta next door, seeing BC go the other route and have a grand coalition of the center-right seems unlikely; there's just too much political ground to see a coalition that can cover 60%+ of the vote, especially when the current government is a bit squishy and on its heels.
A three-way Liberal-Conservative-NDP fight on the provincial level not unlike the voting on a federal level, might be what the next election sees.
I gave up on the Tigers this afternoon when they fell behind 6-0 while I went to get Eileen from work; my mistake. The Tigers put up an 8-spot in the 6ths and hung on to a 10-8 win; even weak-hitting Ryan Rayburn got into the act, tripling his RBI total for the year with a homer and 4RBIs. Maybe Rayburn actually has game and didn't have a picture of Jim Leyland in flagrante delicto with a Pekinese.
