"very series"

Does that mean there is more than one fire?

thanks, I'm in DC but doing business with people in Chicago (if you can lawyers "people") today, so probably won't be on my cable. I'll try national cable here.


Good use of breaking news

They broke into their normal news saying "a very series high rise fire is occuring....we see people running out of buildings"(local fox) I kid you not
Then they said it may just be people evactuating the building next to the "high rise Fire"..

Then I turned it to Wgn-tv and they said "a very series high rise fire is occruing downtown"
well like I said it was a 4-5 story building...

I didn't take this seriesly until I found out it was occruing. It is certainly occruing interest in my book. I thought maybe it was happening in Isreal. Those Isrealis would send in the calvary if this was occruing their.

her by Svenge - her brother-in-law - an Oslo dentist and
star of many Norwegian møvies: "The Høt Hands of an Oslo
Dentist", "Fillings of Passion", "The Huge Mølars of Horst

Fire reported near North Michigan Avenue

Tribune staff reports
Published August 27, 2002, 12:36 PM CDT

Police briefly closed off sections of North Michigan Avenue shortly after noon as the Chicago Fire Department responded to a fire in the vicinity of the 500 block of North Michigan Avenue.

Smoke could be seen drifting from a building east of the busy street.

Michigan Avenue was closed briefly in both directions between Illinois and Ohio Streets.

Details to come.

It's ferie zeriez....

The Spelling Chequer:
Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar writ
It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.

Has the coverup of turning this obvious act of terrorism happened yet. I am sure they will blame it on something stupid like an "electrical fire" or some other bogus response. I want to know when Bush knew! There needs to be a hearing in the Senate to look into possible involvement by the Bush administration.
