Day after day we are bombarded with news items on the computer. Now it’s time to put them to use. Whether it’s something you saw or heard about, post your findings here. This’ll be a good way to stay informed on the lastest.

A couple things to note: (Revised)

  1. All news articles for submission should be kept current. Article date required in the post.
  2. Fake news will not be allowed.
  3. If the news item is short enough you may post it in its entirety. :arrow_left: No longer allowed.


You’ve probably heard of this one.

Yes I did. Hooray!!! It’s to bad though it only hit it intraday and couldn’t finish above but maybe due to strong earnings last night from Starbucks, Qualcomm and Netflix, hopefully that’ll give the Dow a little boost as well.
Now it’s really all about the S&P hitting 1300 and getting above it.

I saw this, and this is very disturbing. It used to be the conservative side that wanted censorship, but now, it’s the liberal side. What’s even more disturbing is the fact that Twain used those words as a tool against racism. You can’t change history, and the PC police should be ashamed that they are destroying this masterpiece.

You do realize that article is dated December 2008, don’t you?

If you’ve kept up on your updates, you should be fine.

Shows how much I read… :blush: Either there’s a new one I haven’t found yet, or the news that I watch is WAY behind! I’ll see if I can find the right one.

EDIT - OK, I can’t find it. Lesson learned - NEVER rely solely on your local news!
With that said, I need to redeem myself, so I’ll throw this up here:
