I don't now how common it is for whales to beach themselves, and it usually leads to a team of scientist to do research on cause of death/beaching. This may not be news worthy to some, but it is to me.

At least the usual group of wackos aren't on here blaming it on Bush or Obama, or even better saying that an investigation should be started because it is "suspicious" that the whale died with no visable wounds <gasp>.

No, it wasn't Oprah. She was delayed at the airport when security discovered that she had 50 pounds of crack on her!
