Gosh, if you're going to fly Old Glory upside down in the distress fashion, at least do it correctly. You've got that flag all screwed up.

An old military saying was "there are people in this world who could even screw up a soup sandwich."

How sad the feeble minded turn to personal attacks when they have nothing else to say.

Can we please stick to the subject at hand? If you guys are going to fight, go somewhere else.

OK, WOW, so what is your input on the relevance of a drunk on a lawn mower on the other side of the planet, and why is it so important to you?

Because I'm from New Zealand. Do you not see that?

And my input is that this news is funny. We need more news like THIS.

What you don't understand being that removed from the local media, is we have the newspaper, who farmed a great forum off on this Topix cesspool, and a local TV station that is a joke, playing mostly video clips of nonsensical tripe from around the country, such as a garbage truck turning over and snarling traffic somewhere else.

The issue, neither have any competition in the area, so they claim they are the "news leader", which they are. They just never mention that they have last place locked up also.

And our local media has covered drunks on lawn mowers, horses, mules, bicycles, tractors all instead of covering news.
