Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, the man convicted of the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, and who was given a life sentence in 2001 will be released on "compassionate grounds." He was convicted of killing 270 people eight years ago; but he is being released early as he is in the final stages of prostate cancer. I guess in Scotland, life is 8 years, but if you have a terminal illness, they let you out early so you can die at home. I thought the point of a life sentence was to put the person in prison until they die? Europeans are weird.
A Few Americans are making the Rest of Us Look Bad
Earlier in the week, GA Congressmen David Scotts’s office was vandalized, but not just with eggs, TP, or a flaming bag of poop. Nope, the vandal spray painted a four foot swastika on his office door. Now, he is getting hundreds of very threatening faxes and letters, many using a particular word you do not say towards African Americans. To top it all, Rep. Scott brought some of these letter to a CNN interview and CNN aired some pretty much unedited…way to go CNN, advancing race relations since never.
Largest Column Installed Yet At World Trade Center Site
Breaking News: AP is reporting that a large column, the LARGEST thus far, has been installed on the site. The news story even had an accompanying photo of a crane installing said column.

Somewhere in Heaven, Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite are crying.
