December 28 in the news.....

  • Former US President Gerald Ford died Tuesday at 93. He is now performing as a back up dancer while James Brown sings Living in America in the line up at the Pearly Gates.

  • The Times Square crowd in New York on New Year's Eve will be wearing 3D glasses for the occasion as effects are used this time around. It is being talked about in positive terms for the party even if New Yorkers are sensitive to things that look to be coming right at them.

  • Somali Islamists have abandoned Mogadishu as Ethiopian troops advanced towards the Somalian capital. The Islamists had repeatedly vowed to fight to the death for their religion and their land, making their disappearance that much more unexpected. Ethiopia has now offered to open a can of starving african whoop ass on Iraq if the US 'can't handle their shit'.

  • More than 100,000 litres of raw sewage has spilled into an Adelaide river. This greatly assisted in increasing the urban water supplies.
