'Serious casualties' from blast at Nigerian voting station

A bomb blast ripped through a voting station in northeastern Nigeria Saturday evening, causing "serious casualties," a spokesman for the National Emergency Management Agency said.

It was the third such explosion in the country since Friday.

Human Rights Watch estimates that at least 85 people have been killed in political violence in the run-up to the delayed national elections, being held over three days:  Saturday, April 16 and April 26.

    In what part of Texas did you live?
    I've played in all the big places there, and in little ones too.
    Y'all have so much oil, and cows...

    What a life story I must have?
    The first part, Tennessee Williams could not have gotten published: not credible.
    The playing? I love music. Going to play somewhere...if I see the city, I don't play well.
    I'm pretty retired from that. I may play some more.

    I have determination not to die–ever.
    I was joking with a pupil (singer) yesterday about being to mean to die.
    He said I might be the first one to accomplish that.

    Re: c average
    I just tried to say something that meant I graduated "with honors," and, as I'd expected, the censor throttled it!
