I wondered how long it would be after she returned.

Slight chance it’s a bogus report?

I heard on Fox that she “disappeared” for at least 30 minutes before she arrived at the hospital and after the attack.

My neighbor’s daughter is over there for a week or so. Sheesh. They will be frantic about their blonde, blue-eyed 27(?) year old until she’s safely home. Prayers for all involved.

It is a big deal. Trust me. When something like this happens in a nuclear power, it is a very big deal.

It’s just that people misuse the breaking news section all the time. I thought this would be an appropriate use. Is that a big deal? I don’t think so.

It could be the "shot heard round the world." I hope it's not, but if it is, it is.

Meanwhile, Paris and Nikki Hilton aren’t getting much of grandad’s money.

Well, that’s the lead on Fox’s website, anyway, so it must be important.
