..and Stop Calling Me Shirley...

Ted Striker: My orders came through. My squadron ships out tomorrow. We're bombing the storage depots at Daiquiri at 1800 hours. We're coming in from the north, below their radar.
Elaine Dickinson: When will you be back?
Ted Striker: I can't tell you that. It's classified.
Airplane, the Movie

I heard on the radio this morning (no link, can't find one) that our US Special Forces are stationed in a French base near Yemen, possibly in Djibouti , ready to strike on Al Queda targets in Yemen any day. Well, if I'm an Al Queda sleeper in New York and I'm listening to 1010 WINS, I'm sending a secret message to my jihad brothers letting them know to leave their not-so-secure, now-disclosed location asaFp! (As soon as F--king possible).

There's such thing as too much news, people. More info about special forces stuff at the Washington Post.

Media Feeding Frenzy

This morning I was walking to work past the new CNN studio. The CNN folks are so proud of it, with lots of security, big electronic ticker tapes, flat screen TVs all tuned to CNN.  It's a lot like the NBC one down the block in Rockefeller Center.

Right outside, though, the marketing team from Fox News Morning Show was giving out juice boxes. You couldn't go past the studio without someone trying to shove a juice in your face. I heard a rumor that CNN was giving out "O'Reilly's Nuts Bars" down the street in front of the News Corp building but no one was interested.
