Preachin' to the Choir 

Headline on Yahoo front page. Pope: Catholic colleges should be in line with church

Okay, I agree with that. Absolutely, Catholic colleges should be in line with Catholic teaching. For that matter, Mormon colleges should be in line with Mormon teaching. Jewish colleges should be in line with Jewish teachings. Etc. However, that's exactly why people should not send their kids to religious colleges for scientific based education. That means no doctors, no physicists, no engineers and no researchers.

Slow News Day? 

Drivers flood station for 35 cent gas
WILMINGTON, N.C. - Traffic was backed up and police were called to control the crowd after a Wilmington gas station accidentally set the pump price at 35 cents a gallon.

The Wilmington Star-News reported Friday that hundreds of drivers flooded a BP station for the cheap gas after the price dropped around 9 a.m. Thursday.

Station employee Shane Weller said the price for premium gasoline was supposed to be $3.35 a gallon. He complained that customers paid the cheaper price all day without saying a word.
This kind of thing happens all the time. Why the fuck is this being reported as national news?

Our media sucks.
