    How important is this local news to be hilighted in CNN´s International edition?
    Earlier this morning a small truck crashed on my neighbourhood and it wasn´t published by CNN.

    Please be aware you are not the center of the world!

    Im positive the ferry captain was a tall arab name Osama. He was praying to allah when then boat crash into the dock. Or it could be his long lost Pakistani Taliban cousin named Mullah Omar. I bet he is boarding an Emirate airline for Dubai now.

    Well NYCCAGEGRESSOR not everyone is absorbed by minor things that go on in NYC, and yes I have lived there. Nowhere else in the country is a city so self absorbed with itself. Memphis on the other hand is a true disaster area that deserves coverage. Gee I wonder CNN's ratings continue to tank. It!s because of crap story coverage like this. There is a national disaster in another part of the country, nah let's cover the fender bender on 5th and 49th it costs less. At one time CNN was the premier news organization in the world and now it's crap.

    America is a perfect society. If anything bad happens, it must be cause by others. The Pakastani Taliban are our new whipping boy. Lets just do what Rooselvelt did, lock them up and use patoitism as an excuse. Do not give anymore citizenship to them.

    Is it true that all the minor injuries were to the eyes? Supposedly caused by a flash of finger pointing.

  10. Sad to be an American at times like this

    To the rest of the world I apologise for the infantile actions of others in this Country. When you let people post without having to leave their name, the ones that think they're funny, type the first thing that comes into their head.

    Come on America, we're better than this. If it's not a news story that affects you, why bother commenting on it, if it does affect you, let us know what you're hearing, some of us might really want to know whats happening without having to read through comment after comment about how it's Toyota's fault, Bush's Fault, Teabaggers Fault, Obama's Fault. We, as Americans, need to come together, grow a pair, and stop acting like children.
