Friday, July 13 in the news....

  • An American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to London was diverted to New York's JFK airport early today after the flight crew reported a suspicious passenger, the US Transportation Security Administration said. The suspicious passenger turned out to be Al Gore's son high on drugs.

  • A movie about a man-eating crocodile preying on tourists in the Northern Territory is like a $30 million advertisement for the Top End, says the film's director Greg Mclean. "Paul Hogan may have done a lot in the 80s for tourism but I think it's much better when the crocodile wins," he said, "I intend to improve tourism to Waziristan next with my movie about a Westerner-hunting Islamist".
