Breaking News for Today
I always check my nifty little iPhone app, Mobile News (created by The Associated Press) to keep up with current events. It lets me quickly scan and see what's going on in the world. It's not an in depth review of global news by any means, but it usually informs me of important events. Today, these two really caught my eye:
Out of the 10 stories, there were these two gems. The first discusses the findings that Mockingbirds can tell people apart. Oooohh, and maybe even more birds can do the same. Seriously? People are actually doing research on this? For what purpose? How could that possibly matter to anything or anyone?
The second story, while somewhat amusing, should not be considered important news. The best quote from that story was,
The father declined to press charges and told police he doesn't want to ruin his son's political career.
Didn't want to ruin his career! Too late for that :-)
Let's hope the Associated Press can deliver some decent news in the future, because I still like my little iPhone app. And researching whether or not birds can tell people apart. Who cares. Let's research something important: out of 1000 births, 8 babies will have some form of congenital heart disorder.
