Wednesday, June 13 in the news....

  • Former Pakistan cricket coach Bob Woolmer died of natural causes, and not of murder as initially suspected, Jamaican police said on Tuesday. This report surfaced after they reclassified natural causes to include Pakistan being knocked out of the World Cup in the first stage.

  • A senior U.S. diplomat accused Iran on Tuesday of transferring weapons to Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan. Iran said this was a continuing campaign to demonise them, including blaming them for writing the Sopranos finale, orchestrating Paris Hilton's release from prison, and posting clips on You Tube of the US military in Iraq to the tune of Wilson Phillips #1 hit 'Hold On'.

  • President Bush had his watch stolen off his wrist during an Albanian walkabout on his tour there. But the President's spokesman denied this: "No, it was not [stolen]. It was placed in his pocket". When asked why the President decided to put it in his pocket his spokesman accidentally blurted out, "Because it would have been embarrassing if someone asked him to tell them the time."
