    I have been watching the new for almost 2 hours with a line on the bottom of the screen saying people in hospital with blood coming out of their heads but I have yet to see the story and cannot find it on your webpage. Isn't that a little more important than Jimmy Buffet. Get your priorities straight. As usual money prevails the news.
