Tuesday, February 5 in the news.....

  • Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton fought for a breakout in their eyeball-to-eyeball Democratic duel while Republican John McCain hoped to bury his rival's presidential hopes in a blur of voting Tuesday from Alaska to the Atlantic. While Hillary was measuring up Barack and asserting that she was the real agent for future change, John McCain was measuring up President Bush and asserting that he was the real agent for future low approval ratings and kicking foreigner arse.

  • As Heath Ledger's hometown of Perth prepared for the arrival of his remains, locals expressed dismay at speculation in the media that the actor had used drugs. They said the only such people from Perth who would possibly do that all play for the West Coast Eagles or hang out with Ben Cousins.
