Yes, that's what I figured, since the podcasts that were doing that were mostly of Radio 1.

This is so fucked beyond belief (the story, the lying, more lying, even more lying and of course; the media) that I don't think the real truth will ever be found.

The guy is beyond doubt disturbed, to say the least. Wether this has to do with the fact that there's about 50 million people judging him guilty or if he was like this to begin with remains to be seen.

Half the Dutch population (myself included) watched the 2 hour show last night.

Still, I think it's strange there's no investigative journalism doing this kind of research on the reason why the US ever ended up in Iraq, killing about 500 people a day. Me thinks that presented in a format like this, the people would want to know a lot more on the background of that.

I did not know it was aired last night.
He is some sicko, one way or another. Did not use one bit of compassion, if this 'new' story has any truth to it.

What a journey.

There have been a number of "trysts" with teens and drinking/drugs locally in the Chicago news over the past few years. Some have even resulted in deaths. The added dimension of these kids already being on the beach and someone having access to a boat would seem to make it not much of stretch that Natalee was sent to Davy Jone's locker. Classic case of bad decisions compounding the mess...

In other horrible "mass shooting" news a Chicago suburb that is fairly far out into the "quiet zone" : http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/775483,CST-NWS-victims04.article
Odd twist, given that the chain specializes in clothing for the "full figured: http://www.suntimes.com/news/roeper/775105,CST-NWS-roep04.article

I interviewed with Lane Bryant AND Victoria's Secret in the same week, some years ago. Both were part of "the limited" corporation. Lane Bryant had/s a big location here in an unsafe part of town.

What a journey.

It was weird. I got this news via email as a store-closing alert from BBY corporate.

Well ... dunno the format you desire but Frontline is very straightforward:

I love Frontline (and not just because of the name!). They do the most in-depth documentaries and they don't take political sides. They used to do the most damning docs on Clinton when he was Pres. I just watched one over the weekend about Pakistan and the Taliban. Great stuff.

I never saw one on Clinton. What did they do on him?

We may not like what we see, but unless there's a definitive confession or technical evidence or a witness that comes forward, the guy is innocent until proven otherwise.

That's how our society works, at least, I hope it still works like that.

In that tape he confesses quite a bit...

He clearly gave up a lot of information... most importantly that he knew where she was and how she died Which--until this tape--he has denied.

I think it's a travesty we don't spend more time highlighting these cases on our own soil.

If these tapes are allowed as evidence at a trial and he's convicted, only then he's guilty. I despise him as much as Bill does, but I don't think the public playing prosecutor and judge will do our society much good.

Before you know it, we might go to war over some unproven accusations.

Hey, after about 11 1/2 years, we're a two-income household again. Now we can both take the daily anger of work, swallow it deep in our belly, and not talk about it with one another every night! ;)

[technically, a 1.25 income household]

What a journey.

It's not the income, it the ratio of inflow::outflow. Seems like you have a pretty good handle on that. I came across another tip that is going in the retirement thread.
