Wow, what unbelieveable news we have for you in News from Nowhere. Like I have said, the world has gone crazy. Tiger Woods has become a cheating cad, Meredith Baxter has decided she prefers girls, you have party crashers at the White House, you have peace-loving Barack Obama sending in the troops, and in general the world has become unglued. And I'm not even going to talk about that debacle of a Grey Cup game, which the Riders lost in both heartbreaking and humbling fashion in front of a record TV audience. Really, what is the world coming to?

I'm blaming it all on Oprah. She should never have quit. Anyway, I am putting up here more weird news in an effort to kill some time.

First, there's the strange sad story of the former Miss Argentina who died after plastic surgery was performed on her butt. What a way to go.

President Barack Obama was on TV last night and it did not go too well, apparently. People thought it was insincere and just the usual politics; the bloom is definitely off the rose now. Here is what Der Spiegel had to say. 

I can't believe the number of people coming out of the woodwork who claim that climate change is a fraud.

It's still sad times in the news business. The Washington Times is firing hundreds of people and also cutting back is the Miami Herald. But here's some welcome good news for entertainment reporters: the LA Times is hiring in the entertainment section. I guess people are needed for the live continuing coverage of celebrities cheating on their spouses.

Cable TV ratings -- ever since Lou Dobbs left CNN, Anderson Cooper's ratings have gone head-first into the toilet.

And speaking of TV networks in the toilet, Comcast is about to take over NBC-Universal.

Did I mention that the snow is falling where I am and it's finally getting cold? Winter is upon us, finally. That is all for now.
