Watch out for March 15th, mate!
Special report from Raoul Mercedes y Peruka Mendonca, Annapolis, MD.
His work as a news cameraman for ITN has taken James Nicholas, now serving as an independent councilman for Tytherington (reputed to be the East L.A. of Macclesfield County), to the world's hot-spots Iraq, Rwanda, Chechnya, Northern Ireland, Romania during the revolution and Sarajevo's "sniper's alley".
Now we know why it's called "Team GB"
The Chinese government is diverting the output of 2 new coal-fired power stations to a wind farm on the edge of Peking. The bright idea is to feed vast amounts of power to the wind turbines to drive them in reverse and blast smog and foul air away from the city during the Olympic games.
Food for thought
Take your own oxygen time?
You can tell it's the silly season . . .
Wind farms are lethal to bats
Who cares if it rains a bit more?

Barry George, who has been released after 8 years in gaol, was convicted for the murder of Jill Dando because he fitted the police profile of a sociopathic loner. The lack of actual evidence seems to have become secondary with time. Mr. George had no motive, there were no witnesses to the crime itself, there was no forensic evidence connecting Mr. George to the crime scene, no weapon was ever found . . . all the prosecution had was 'evidence' of a bad character. Which was finally booted out of court by a jury with a bit of gumption.

Job creation, new labour style!
What's up with that?
The Nobel prize-winning Russian author and social commentator has died at 89. Born into the immediate post-Revolution period, he was sent to a Soviet concentration camp right after serving in the army in World War II for daring to criticize the homicidal dictator Stalin.
The stadium was opened in 1933 by William Chandler, a former illegal street bookmaker. Competition from high street bookmakers and internet gambling reduced attendances and revenue for the tote and the track-side bookies. The unviable stadium becomes the property of a housing trust from next month. Half of the new properties to be built on the site will be 'affordable'; which means that no one will be able to afford the other half, so why they'll be built is a mystery.
He took power 9 years ago in a 'bloodless' coup against a former president who, amazingly, is still around and active in politics, and set himself up as a recipient of Western aid in return for a tough-ish line against Islamic extremists (apart from the thousands lurking in the northern badlands).
The man who produced The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy has died at 55. During his career as a producer for BBC radio, he also created the Mornington Crescent game for the long-running Radio 4 comedy I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue and co-wrote Radio Active and KYTV with Angus Deayton.
He retired from the NFL in March but the Green Bay Packers' star quarterback is suddenly feeling frisky again, the League has agreed to reinstate him and he is ready to march in to this season's training camp. Which isn't going to please Aaron Rodgers, the former back-up, who might just have a fight on his hands for the lead role in the Packers' offense.
Overfilling a bin, or putting extra bags of refuse beside it, is a more serious crime than shoplifting or being drunk and disorderly in the new labour world. Breach of rubbish regulations commands a spot fine of £110 while shoplifting and D&D are worth only £80 and bail jumping commands a fine of just £60 from the criminals' friends in the labour party.

The World Health Authority has concluded that the European Union's Common Agricultural Policy thrusts subsidies at the producers of fatty foods like butter and beef, encourages unhealthy diets and kills 3,500 British citizens every year through heart attacks and strokes.
Never tell the truth, the public can't handle it
The Chinese government has unleashed an army of dog catchers to clear the streets of Peking of larger pet dogs as well as strays so that their barking won't destroy the tranquil atmosphere of the city during the Olympics. The luckier dogs are being stored in cages in a vast warehouse on the edge of the city. The less fortunate ones are being strangled and delivered to restaurants and suppliers of dog-fur trim to the European fashion trade.
Tell it like it is!
new labour's former pantomime horse of a deputy leader has charged to scotch gordon's support as he flounders. Old Two Jags reckons that scotch is in the same position as the captain of the Titanic, which is supposed to make us feel better about the old blunderbuss at No. 10.

A pair of Bigfootologists from northern Georgia (USA, not the eastern trouble spot) reckon they've found the body of a dead Bigfoot and they've seen several live ones roaming around in woodland. They're not saying where they found their prize to protect the live Bigfeet, but as a preliminary claim, they have released a photograph of their corpse in a freezer.
Friends of the planet Pluto have challenged the International Astronomical Union to a fight at a conference at Johns Hopkins University over the IAU's anti-democratic decision to demote Pluto from planetary status. Mark Sykes, director of the Planetary Science Institute, reckons that if an object is massive enough to be spherical and orbiting a star (which excludes Earth's Moon), then it's a planet.

The tourism office on Grenada has located the source of bad smells on the Caribbean island's beaches. Dog owners are using starfish as frisbees for their dogs to catch, and the chomped starfish are dying and decaying on the sands to create the nasal pollution.
Welcome to sunny Peking?
Okay, so the pictures could be of anywhere smoggy, but you'll have to take our word for it that these are genuine pix of the Chinese capital, which is to become a testbed for automatically controlled cars fitted with all-round radar systems. The thinking behind the plan is that the air quality is always going to be so bad that people won't be able to see where they're going, so they might as well speed the traffic up for the benefit of tourists with some automatic systems. Might even work!

Engineering the future kyboshed in Germany
Russia has used the opening of the Olympics as a cover for launching a Blitzkrieg on Georgia; mainly to give the former president and current prime minister, Gospodin Putin, an alibi. The excuses for trying to reclaim the South Osetiya region as part of a post-Soviet Russian empire seem to be recycled versions of the ones used by the Nazis for laying claim to Austria, the Sudetenland, Danzig, Memel and all the parts of eastern Europe which had a German-speaking population centuries ago.

Ideas above his station
The opinion polls in the United States are 48:28 in favour of presidential hopeful Mr. O'Bama. Unfortunately, that's 48% of Americans reckon they've heard too much about him already compared to just 28% with total McCain fatigue.
